Since 2009, the Stadium of Light, home to Sunderland AFC, has hosted some of the biggest names in music, from Oasis and Take That to Coldplay, Bruce Springsteen, Rihanna and Beyoncé.
While it looks like there will be no concert this summer, the club has not ruled out staging music spectaculars in the future.
As a result, we thought we would take a look back at the fabulous times the concerts gave visitors and the people of Sunderland.
Rain or shine, fans queued for their concert tickets with enthusiasm.
Who remembers that Oasis were the first band to play, way back in 2009, and in the same year Take That had their first gig at the Stadium of Light before returning to perform again in 2011.
Then in 2012, Sunderland was the stage for three massive acts as the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Coldplay and Bruce Springsteen all belted out their hits.
Were you in one of the ticket queues, or maybe you are one of ladies in the pink hats?
