JESS GLYNNE will be showing some real love to fans tomorrow as she arrives in the region for her summer tour.

The artist will be taking to the stage at the Darlington Arena this Friday, August 2, bringing her powerhouse vocals for a dazzling performance.

She will be joined by special guest Nina Nesbitt, and Australian sister band Germein, and organisers are confident there is no place fans would rather be.

Gates open at 4pm, with an expected finish time of 10.15pm, and ticket holders are advised to take entry tickets or wristbands, wear appropriate clothing for an outdoor concert, valid ID and cash or card.

Organisers are reminding people that chairs are not permitted into the venue, including blankets, camping chairs, shooting sticks and rollators or walking sticks with seats.

There will be a number of road closures and parking suspensions throughout the day, but park and ride and shuttle services are available at Teesside Airport and the Dolphin Centre from 3pm to 7pm.

Parking in Darlington Borough Council car parks will be free of charge from 3pm.

Neasham Road will be closed at the front of the Darlington Arena between the A66 and Brankin Road from 8pm to midnight and a local residents parking scheme is in place preventing parking on local and nearby streets.

People who have purchased parking at the Darlington Arena have been sent a car parking ticket which will need to be taken to the concert.

No food or drink can be taken onto the site, but reusable water bottles, which are empty on arrival, or sealed 500ml plastic bottles are permitted into the site and can be filled with water at refill points or behind the bar.

Although the event seems one touch away, no one has expressed more excitement for the gig than the artist herself.

Glynne said: “See you soon Darlington! Big love! Can’t wait xx”

Liz Doogan-Hobbs, CEO of LHG Live, promoters of the concert said: “Jess is such an incredibly vibrant and mesmerising artist, arguably the most successful female artist of the moment whose hits have dominated the charts so we are looking forward to a fantastic concert in Darlington. What a night we have in store for fans."

There are still tickets available online or at the arena's main reception, which will be open from 2pm.
