The Metro Radio Arena is preparing to surprise its 10 millionth customer since opening in 1995 with a surprise VIP package.

The lucky customer is expected to visit the Arena this month (February) when they come to one of the three Girls Aloud concerts, performing from 21-23February. They will be given a VIP reception and gifted a pair of tickets to a show of choice per month at the Metro Radio Arena for the rest of 2013 and access to the private, members only, Magic Gold Club.  This fantastic prize has a value in excess of £2,000.

Nichola McKenna, Marketing Manager for the Metro Radio Arena, said: “We don’t know who that special 10 millionth customer will be. It could be someone who bought their tickets last year or are buying their tickets this week. It’s all down to who comes into the venue at the right time. We know from ticket sales that the lucky customer will be coming into the venue on the evening of Saturday 23rd February”.

The Metro Radio Arena plays host to a vast range of events each year, welcoming customers from across the North East, the UK and beyond.

Nichola added: “Following our best year ever in 2012, it’s shaping up to be a really exciting year again for the Arena, with over 30 events already on sale, including Olly Murs, Walking With Dinosaurs, Meat Loaf and We Will Rock You; we are encouraging everyone to get their tickets quickly for Girls Aloud’s Saturday show, as not only will they enjoy a fantastic concert, but they may also be in with a chance of winning this fantastic prize”.

The Sandman Hotel in Newcastle is also supporting the Metro Radio Arena’s 10 Millionth customer, by gifting them a complimentary hotel stay on an evening of a forthcoming show.

Tickets can be purchased for Girls Aloud, Ten – The Hits Tour 2013 in person from the Metro Radio Arena Box Office, online at, or calling 0844 493 6666.
