SUNDERLAND’S very own The Futureheads are coming home this summer to support American rock giants Red Hot Chili Peppers at the Stadium of Light.
The band, who are Sunderland fans, previously performed at the Stadium of Light prior to Sunderland’s final game of the season in May 2005 as the Black Cats lifted the Championship trophy.
The Futureheads frontman Barry Hyde said: “I’m absolutely over the moon that we will be supporting the Red Hot Chili Peppers at the Stadium of Light.
“The stadium is an icon of the city and playing there will be a thrill and a joy for us.”
Bands The Wombats and Reverend and the Makers have already been confirmed as support acts for the gig on June 25.
