Sam Fender confirms he will attend TRNSMT after covid test is negative

By Kirsten McStay

Sam Fender has confirmed he will be attending TRNSMT tomorrow after testing negative for covid.

Earlier this week, the singer had to cancel his two gigs for the Barrowlands after his crew were 'coughing their guts up'.

This then worried fans he would not be able to make his TRNSMT performance on Friday, September 10.

But today he revealed all was well and he would be gracing the stage at Glasgow Green tomorrow.

He also announced new dates for the gigs at the Barrowlands.

Posting on Instagram, he said: "Absolutely buzzing. Tests were all good and we’ll be at @trnsmtfest tomorrow!! HERE WE F***ING GO SCOTLAND rescheduled the Barras shows to their soonest possible dates on Oct 25 & 26 - can’t wait."

And fans were ecstatic by the news.

One wrote: "YES WOW GREAT NEWS I LOVE YOU SEE YOU TOMORROW."

Another added: "Thank f*****g god."

While one said: "can't wait mate, should be class!"

On Tuesday, Sam made the announcement about the cancelled Barrowlands gigs on his Instagram.

He said: "On Instagram, he said: "Been an absolutely amazing run of festivals, best gigs of our lives. Can't believe I'm writing this but half our touring party has been coughing their guts up - we're going to do the right and responsible thing and get us all PCR tested."

"We're gonna have to move the Barrowlands dates to be safe. Sorry Glasgow - hopefully we get to make it upto you at TRNSMT. Big Love, Sam. PS. new single out Wednesday."

This is the fifth time lucky for Sam's gigs at the popular Glasgow venue as they had to be cancelled due to covid related issues.

The 27-year-old Geordie singer will be on the main TRNSMT stage at 7:55pm tomorrow night.
