Wearmouth Bridge could be seen partially barriered off for members of the public as they made their way back into the city centre.

The Northern Echo:

Meanwhile, there were mile-long queues for concert-goers waiting to board the Tyne and Wear Metro at St Peter's Station.

As a result of the concert, there have been further Metro services laid on between Sunderland, Newcastle and South Hylton.

At around 10pm, cars, buses and taxis were spotted in gridlocked traffic as they attempted to make their way cross the River Wear.

The Northern Echo:

More than 20,000 turned out for the singer's Farewell Yellow Brick Road show, which is Sir Elton's last UK tour.

It is also the last time the singer will perform in the North East, marking an end to his rich history of performing at venues such as Newcastle City Hall.

The Northern Echo:

Singles including Rocket Man, Tiny Dancer, Cold Heart and I'm Still Standing rocked the stadium as crowds joined in.

The event, which has seen people from right across the North attend, saw tickets go on sale a year ago, with fans desperate to snatch a ticket.

The tour is due to end in 2023.
