After starting life in Liverpool, Bongo’s became a cult word-of-mouth success in Newcastle, before its popularity quickly skyrocketed and people clamored on social media to get their hands on tickets as they sold out almost as soon as they went on sale.

Speaking to Chronicle Live, Mickey, real name Mike Ledwich, said Newcastle felt “at home” and the Toon certainly deserved Bongo’s Bingo on a larger scale.

“We’ve done hundreds and hundreds of shows in Newcastle now and it feels like home. I can’t believe it’s been five years, but I’m never looking forward to Newcastle. When we get here, we don’t just show off, pack up and go; we go out to bars in town, we meet people who have been to concerts, we love it.

“Bongos have always planned to make Newcastle one of our priorities and people are going to lose their minds with what we have planned for the arena. Bongo’s are known to put on a show but they haven’t seen a thing yet! “

Mickey kept his cards very close to his chest on what ticket holders can expect on June 17 and 18 when Bongo’s transforms the arena into a huge dance floor and disco paradise. Bongo’s is a brand famous for its random mix of music – from school anthems to rave anthems – and crazy cap awards, with everything from mobility scooters to Ainsley Harriott cardboard cutouts won over the past five years.

One of Bongo’s most famous prizes is his giant fluffy unicorn, always presented to the strains of the country classic Amazed by Lonestar. “Can you imagine how much bigger an arena is? teased Mickey.

“It’s our opportunity to make things bigger than people have ever seen in Newcastle. The awards will be bigger, the staging will be next level and…my costume…well, I can’t get enough of it. say too much about it!

* Tickets for the Friday and Saturday night events are on sale now on Bongo’s Bingo website, from £33.
