Rihanna Sunderland 19th June 2013

I'm getting my best mate tickets to go and see Rihanna play in Sunderland stadium, i have booked us a hotel in Newcastle city centre to spend a few nights there and go out. I was wondering if anyone knows how far away it is? Is trains often to get one there and back or know roughly how much a taxi would be? Seems all hotels in Sunderland are fully booked - any advice would be gratefull.

Thanks,

Steff

IMO you will be better off in Newcastle anyway. The Metro runs to Sunderland from Newcastle, it will take about 25 mins and they go about every 12 minutes, but I would expect more on for the concert, you can get the Metro back to Newcastle after as well, no need for a taxi.

The Metros website is www.nexus.org.uk get a return ticket, so you don't have to queue on the way back, it will be £4.40 return

Much better off in Newcastle and very easy to get to the Stadium, Metro stops right outside and they always put extra ones one for concerts. Very safe and simple
