Even if your not a great fan of NUFC I can highly recommend doing the Stadium tour. I was lucky to just turn up and join a group, but these tours are very popular so I'd recommend purchasing tickets in advance. The tour lasts 1.5 hours and you get to see pretty much everything. Starting with a great view of the ground from the highest level you progress downwards visiting the Executive Boxes, past the Hospitality suites and onto pitch side. You also get to see the home and visitor changing rooms and press room. Our guide was so knowledgeable about the history of the club, it's players and the Stadium. Really enjoyed my time there.

Great stadium. Have been here for both sporting events and gigs and both brilliant. The two pint pots are great for not needing to get to the bar as quick. Not much discount for it but you wil take 25p off each pint at stadium prices. Always feel safe there and great atmosphere.

Not a lot of room between the seats in front for those of us quite tall , long legs. Take out a mortgage for food & drink , captive audience £6 -£6.50 per pint, burger £7 etc.

putting football on the subs bench for now..... The ambience at St James Park is nothing short of enchanting. As you enter the stadium, a sense of grandeur washes over you, immersing you in the excitement and anticipation of the forthcoming musical spectacle. The vast expanse of the stadium creates an awe-inspiring atmosphere, perfectly suited to the grandeur of live music performances. The energy of the crowd and the beautiful architectural backdrop combine to form an unforgettable experience that is truly magical. Please do more gigs! 😁

History (from Wikipedia)

St James' Park is a football stadium in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. It is the home of Premier League club Newcastle United F.C. With a seating capacity of 52,305 seats, it is the eighth largest football stadium in England.

St James' Park has been the home ground of Newcastle United since 1892 and has been used for football since 1880.
[2] Throughout its history, the desire for expansion has caused conflict with local residents and the local council.[3] This has led to proposals to move at least twice in the late 1960s,[4][5] and a controversial 1995 proposed move to nearby Leazes Park. Reluctance to move has led to the distinctive lop-sided appearance of the present-day stadium's asymmetrical stands.[6]

Besides club football, St James' Park has also been used for 
international football, at the 2012 Olympics,[7] for the rugby league Magic Weekendrugby union World CupPremiership and England Test matches, charity football events, rock concerts, and as a set for film and reality television.
