NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE (CelebrityAccess) — UK-based independent promoter SSD Concerts, announced the launch of the UK’s “first dedicated socially distanced music venue” this summer.
The Virgin Money Unity Arena will be located in Gosforth Park in Newcastle upon Tyne and kicks off in August.

“Join us for a unique socially distanced live entertainment experience. Enjoy the show with your friends and family from the safety of your own personal viewing area.
