Dire Straits star Mark Knopfler is set to play Sheffield Arena – for the first time in 23 years.

Having last played there with the iconic rock band back in 1991, he is set to be the first artist to play the Arena’s new reduced capacity Steel Hall next year.

Housed within the main hall, the 4,000 capacity seated venue is designed to bring the audience closer to the event.

An Evening with Mark Knopfler and Band takes place on Sunday, May 17.

Tickets, priced from £47.25 go on sale tomorrow, at 9am, from the arena box office on 0114 256 5656 or www.motorpointarenasheffield.co.uk
