N-Dubz returned to Newcastle's Utilita Arena last night, on their second-date to the Toon, and they did not disappoint.

Tulisa even brought out a Geordie star, keep reading to find out who it was!

The group, consisting of Fazer, Dappy, and Tulisa brought out their 'catalogue' of incredible hits from I Need You, Girls, Number 1, Strong Again to special moments with just Fazer on piano, alongside Dappy and Tulisa harmonising beautifully on 'Papa If You Can Hear Me' (an emotional ode to 'Uncle B' aka Dappy's father, Byron Contostavlos from 'Mungo Jerry' and dedicated to anyone who has lost a loved one). 

Before the show, the hip-hop trio were supported by A1 x J1, DJs Slapzz and Mazebeats who got the party and crowd going. 

The show also included a fantastic live band, with Tulisa rocking out with the guitarists on one or two tracks. As you'd expect from an N-Dubz show, cousins Dappy and Tulisa certainly brought some hilarious banter to Newcastle.

At one point during the sold-out show, before heading into the track 'Girls', Tulisa playfully asked Dappy "When are you going to settle down and find a beautiful lady, perhaps in Newcastle?" 

Dappy smiled and replied with "You're one to talk", as the track began to play and the crowd went wild.

The groups 'Back To The Future Tour' broke show records, and sold over 300,000 tickets across the UK. 

While the group changed outfits, videos were played on the big screens in the arena to share their highs, lows and how they have grown with their fans by their side over the last 11 years.

In another part of the show, again with Fazer on piano, Dappy and Tulisa playfully sung a made up song about the places they'd been on tour, and added in that everyone in Newcastle and the audience were "f*cking beautiful." It certainly was a beautiful moment, with thousands of fans putting on their flash lights to create a sea of spot lights across the arena. 

Who did N-Dubz bring on stage in Newcastle? 

Geordie Shore star Chloe Ferry was brought on stage by Tulisa during 'You Better Not Waste My Time', alongside fellow N-Dubz fans. 

As Dappy and Fazer went to search for two fans to bring up on stage to dance and sing their hearts out, Tulisa teased before the song that she had a 'special guest' to bring out on stage, another 'female boss' (Tulisa is known for her iconic saying 'I am the biggest Female Boss' which coincides her tattoo of which she famously showed on The X Factor when she was a judge).

As Chloe walked off the stage, Tulisa then said "Newcastle, make some noise for Chloe Ferry, you're looking sexy as hell". 

N-Dubz are certainly back and we sure did miss them, the group were full of energy, dancing, bouncing around the stage, even taking time to go through the crowds to meet and greet their fanbase titled 'N-Dublettes'.

With a sold out tour, summer shows on the way, and a new album in the new year, we're all eager to see (and hear) their next move. 

Are N-Dubz returning to Newcastle next year?

If you missed your chance to see N-Dubz live this year, the group will be performing next summer in Sunderland on 21st July 2023, with support acts Bad Boy Chiller Crew and Nathan Dawe. Click here for tickets.
