Singer songwriter Sam Fender has just dropped the dates for his upcoming ‘Seventeen Going Under’ tour – and it finishes with a special one-off Manchester date.  

On Wednesday 6 July, the singer will take on Castlefield Bowl as part of Manchester’s annual gig series, Sounds of the City. 

This year, the series returned to the open-air venue for six nights of incredible gigs played by some of the UK and Ireland’s biggest bands and artists. The likes of Dermot Kennedy, The Streets, Kaiser Chiefs, Snow Patrol and more each headlined an evening.  

Organisers have already confirmed three dates for Sounds of The City 2022. Starting with Lewis Capaldi on Tuesday 28 June, Foals on Wednesday 29 June and Crowded House on Thursday 30 June, Sam Fender’s gig on 6 July is now the fourth official date in the diary. 

Sam’s Manchester date will follow an eight-night stint around the UK and Ireland. Across these dates his arena tour will stop off at London’s Wembley Stadium, Dublin’s 3Arena and Glasgow’s SSE Hydro Arena to name just a few, making it his biggest UK tour date.  

Sam’s new album ‘Seventeen Going Under’ is out tomorrow.

Last week, the Geordie singer dropped his new single ‘Spit Of You’, taken from his new album ‘Seventeen Going Under’ which is out 8 October. The release comes just as he and his band are about to embark on a seven date, sold-out UK tour at the end of the month, with dates in Leeds, Newcastle and London along the way. 

So, to get access to pre-sale tickets which go on sale at 9am on Wednesday 13 October, you need to order the new album before 5pm on Tuesday 12 October from his online store. You’ll then receive your code and ticket link via email.  


General tickets for the tour and Sounds of The City will then go on sale at 9am on Friday 15 October.
