The Professor will be hitting Passion this weekend – and you could be there for free.

Professor Green will take to the stage at Passion nightclub on Saturday to mark its re-branding as Illusions.

The Holmeside venue has undergone a revamp and installation of a new sound system as part of its new chapter, which owners hope will help it become a regular fixture on the live music touring circuit.

The British rapper, whose hits include Read All About It, Remedy and Monster, will be supported on the night by Joel Culpepper, Big Beat Bronson and Top Boy Round Here.

With a capacity of 1,300, Illusions is hoping to attract a number of big names to the city as its biggest dedicated city centre music venue.

Owner Mike Downey said: “We’ve been working on this for weeks and have spent a hell of a lot of money on becoming Illusions.

“We think Sunderland deserves to have this type of venue and we want to be more than just a nightclub.

“We decided to launch with someone really high profile to show what we can do here.

“He’s England’s answer to Eminem.”

Tickets priced £20 are available from Boulevard in Sunderland, from Passion’s Facebook page or from
