Fifty-thousand fans are expected to descend on Wearside to attend the show, which promises to deliver a packed programme of pop, with Baby, Ginger, Scary and Sporty supported by the chart-topping Jess Glynne.

You may have decided on your outfit, how you're getting to the Stadium of Light and even what you might get to eat and drink once you arrive (the important stuff) - but if you haven't yet looked at the particulars on your ticket, we're here to help.

The stadium is being divided into multi-coloured zones for the event, to make it easier for visitors getting in and out of the venue.

Gig-goers are being reminded to check their tickets carefully in advance, so they know where to go and which zone to look for when they arrive on the night.

There will be a colour on the top of your ticket and it will correspond with an entry point at the stadium.
