Next week’s Coates Hire Newcastle 500 concert presented by Triple M Newcastle has confirmed a third act to support international rockers Simple Minds and Aussie chart-toppers Birds of Tokyo.

Melbourne-based rockers The Delta Riggs, who supported the Foo Fighters Stadium Tour of Australia in 2015, has joined the line-up following a recent, sold-out national tour.

That included a performance at Newcastle’s well-known Cambridge Hotel, located just one kilometre from where this year’s Supercars concert will take place on November 24.

The Saturday night concert will be held at the No. 1 Sportsgrounds following the opening Virgin Australia Supercars Championship race of the weekend around Newcastle’s CBD.

Supercars fans will gain free entry to the Saturday night concert presented by Triple M Newcastle, with their race day ticket.

A strong crowd is expected at the 2018 grand finale, with Scott McLaughlin and Shane van Gisbergen set to fight it out for the championship.

Sunday afternoon’s race, meanwhile, will be Supercars legend Craig Lowndes’ last as a full-time driver.
