Stockton Globe opens up after 46 years

The historic Stockton Globe, based in north-east England, will open its doors in September for the first time since 1975, when British group McFly takes to the stage at the Grade II-listed Art Deco venue. 

Now operated by Ambassador Theatre Group (ATG), the 3,000-capacity Stockton-on-Tees venue has undergone a £28m revamp as part of a broader regeneration project in the area after having been mothballed for nearly half a century. 

The stall area can be reconfigured to suit the type of event that is being held and boasts a capacity of between 770 and 2,200 people. There will also be an open bar at the rear and an orchestra pit, with The Circle able to accommodate 836 people, who will be seated at all times. 

Technological infrastructure costing £1.8m has been installed at the venue to support the demands of digital ticketing and modern-age audience engagement, according to reports.

The band tweeted: “Stockton! We’re stoked to be the first band to perform [at] the new[ly]-restored Stockton Globe. Tickets are on sale now.”

McFly will join a long list of global music superstars to have performed at the venue, including The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Stevie Wonder. 

This year, the venue, will also host Paloma Faith, Jools Holland, Status Quo and UB40.In a post on Twitter, Stockton Globe stated: “Tickets to the FIRST SHOW at the newly restored Stockton Globe are on sale now! @mcflymusic will be performing their massive hits on the Globe’s stage on 6/9/2021 in a special show to launch our iconic venue. Obviously, you don’t wanna miss this one!”
