Michael Bublé is set to play host to over 11,000 adoring fans in County Durham on Wednesday (July 6) night.

The Canadian singer is visiting the Seat Unique Riverside, Chester-Le-Street for one night only on his UK tour ‘An Evening with Michael Bublé’.

Fans will be hoping that the weather stays dry and warm for the outside gig however stalls around the stadium are sure to be selling ponchos in case of wet weather.

Diana Ross fans came prepared for rain last Wednesday (June 29) at the Riverside with umbrellas and ponchos at the ready but weren’t fazed by rainy spells before the gig began.
