BASKETBALL stars the Harlem Globetrotters are arriving in Sheffield chauffeur-driven onboard another American icon - a Greyhound bus.

Members of the team are performing at Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena on Thursday, April 28 as part of their 2011 UK Arena Tour.

A spokesman for First Group, which owns the Greyhound bus firm as well as First South Yorkshire, said: “It’s the first time that an official Greyhound coach has visited Sheffield.”

The Globetrotters are making their second performance in Sheffield in the last two years, having previously performed at the arena last year.

Over the years, the team has given shows in 120 countries, on six continents, often providing audiences with their first experience of live basketball.
