BBC Radio Humberside is to host a fantastic night of live music featuring local bands at the Hull Venue, which will be the first ticketed event to take place at the new stadium.
The night will be hosted by BBC Radio Humberside presenters Alan Raw, the station’s BBC Introducing presenter; and David Burns.
BBC Music Introducing on Radio Humberside will feature four local acts: La Bete Blooms, rapper Chiedu Oraka, Bud Sugar and indie band The Hubbards will be the headline act for the evening.
Bonus Arena is a state-of-the-art, music and events complex with a capacity of up to 3,500 people that will allow Hull to attract large corporate conferences, exhibitions and trade tours as well as major touring concerts, stand-up comedy, family shows and sporting events. The plans include the building of the new arena, alongside the rebuilding of Osborne Street car park and additional public spaces in a currently derelict area on Myton Street behind Princes Quay shopping centre. The arena is scheduled to open during the summer of 2018. The building is owned by Hull City Council and will be managed by SMG Europe, a world leader in venue management, operation and marketing with more than 220 venues worldwide, including Manchester Arena, Metro Radio Arena Newcastle, First Direct Arena Leeds, The Baths Hall and The Plowright Theatre Scunthorpe.
