Yungblud is on home soil in Doncaster tonight.

Bound by a love for his brilliantly outspoken breed of rock-and-roll music, that community has witnessed Yungblud’s rise from a struggling musician living in a Northern England council flat to a global superstar hailed by Rolling Stone as a “pop-punk rebel on a mission” following the release of his self-titled EP and his full-length 2018 debut, 21st Century Liability.

Chris Hone, head of commercial development for Doncaster Catering Conferencing and Events, who manage events at the Dome, said: “We are looking forward to welcoming Yungblud to the Dome this weekend.

“This event sold out really quickly and we know that there are lots of dedicated fans who cannot wait to see him perform.”

He has garnered over 1.4 billion streams worldwide and has over 8.6 million monthly listeners on Spotify.

His appearance at The Dome comes after explosive summer show at the Reading and Leeds Festivals and headlining this year’s Manchester Pride event.
