Roll Up, Roll Up...

There’s oodles of good stuff going on at Utilita Arena Newcastle over the next few months (and if you’re stuck for gift ideas this year, then event tickets always do the trick in my experience…).

There are plenty of pantos taking place this December, but if you’re looking for something a little more magical, a little more on ice, then put your trust in Disney. The Disney On Ice: Presents Dream Big (pictured) show is a real spectacular featuring all your favourites from Moana, Frozen, Aladdin and more (7-11 December). Moving into next year Strictly Come Dancing returns (With 3 shows between 1-2 February). This will see Anton Du Beke joining up with fellow judges Shirley Ballas and Craig Revel Horwood to cast an eye over the eye-popping dance routines. Internationally acclaimed, chart topping, Yungblud, is one of the hottest artists on the scene and is set to visit Newcastle as part of his World Tour. (21 February). Another British star – of a different hue – is Olly Murs (22 April). Pop’s cheeky chappy is back with a new album and is ready to hit the road. There’s sure to be party vibes in the house when the Magic Mike arena tour hits town – get ready to scream the house down for more guys, more thrills and more magic (27 April). Michael Bublé is one of the world’s most popular crooners and he’s all geared up to bring his charismatic tour for two dates to the Arena (1 & 2 May). Strictly is back again in May in the shape of Strictly Come Dancing: The Professionals. Their professional dancers will be taking to the stage for an evening of breath-taking dance, choreography, costumes and sets (4 May). Also in May is another world star, the incredible blues guitarist Joe Bonamassa (13 May), a man who never fails to hold an audience rapt. Sh**ged, Married, Annoyed Live is stopping off in 2023 for two nights of frank and funny banter (15-16 December) with north-east favourites Chris and Rosie Ramsey. We’ve only just scratched the surface of what’s coming up at the Arena in the near future. Check their listings for the full run-down.
