Michael Bublé entertained North East fans last night as he played to a packed out crowd in County Durham.

The star was making an appearance at the Seat Unique Riverside, Chester-le-Street as visited the region for one night only on his ‘An Evening with Michael Bublé’ tour.

Some excited fans had been waiting nearly three years since buying their tickets, after the show was cancelled in 2020, then again in 2021, because of the Covid pandemic.

Bublé thanked the crowd for coming and being so patient waiting for the gig, adding: “I waited over three years for this.”

The Canadian Crooner came complete with a full 30-piece orchestra and commanded the stage with his presence.

He had fans singing and dancing as he played a selection of some of his most well-known hits and covers of iconic songs including ‘Feeling Good’, ‘Cry Me A River’ and ‘L-O-V-E’.
