Oasis will live forever as the greatest gig at the Stadium of Light so far.
Brit Pop legends Oasis, who had a stellar support lineup of The Enemy, Reverend and the Makers and Kasabian, came out trumps with almost 15% of the vote, closely followed by Coldplay, who put on one of the most visually-spectacular shows, with 14% of the vote.
Rock seems to be a popular choice with Echo readers with Foo Fighters coming in in third place, thanks to an energetic performance from frontman Dave Grohl. Rihanna, however, who last year cancelled a planned second gig at the Stadium of Light, failed to wow Wearside with her first outing and came in last with just 3% of the vote.
Though there are no planned gigs in between this year’s football seasons, the club hasn’t ruled out staging gigs in the future. The events, which have attracted national media coverage for the city over the years, are estimated to bring in around £3.5million in visitor spending to the local economy.
