“It’s the biggest gig we’ve put on so far – 45,000 tickets,” he told NME following the show’s announcement. “It’s gonna be like Sam Fender with his mates and friends. We’ve got Fontaines D.C. confirmed so far, and I’m so, so excited because I absolutely adore them boys. Their last record was second to none, you know, it was amazing. It’s going to be a really exciting night.
“I’m just embracing it, man. I’m excited. Just the fact that you mentioned artists like Queens Of The Stone Age and Arctic Monkeys has put a shiver up my spine. We’re here now and we’ve got to fucking pretend that we know what we’re doing!”
He added: “I’m absolutely psyched to be playing Finsbury Park. What a mad night this is going to be. Some huge artists have played there over the years, and it seems crazy that we will headline it next Summer. I’m bringing some friends along too, it’s gonna be wild. Cannot wait.”
Fender is currently on a massive tour, with upcoming dates in Newcastle and Scarborough this May, before opening multiple arena shows for The Killers this June, with stops at both Glastonbury and TRNSMT festival. View ticket details for UK and Ireland dates here.
