But the concert is actually taking place in Lisbon - 1,516 miles away from the town.

The show takes place at Parque de Bela Vista in the Portuguese capital on July 30 - which would mean a 3,000 mile round trip for music fans.

That's nearly a 24 hour drive by car - or a slightly more direct 1,092 miles by air.

The email states: "Upcoming concerts near you by artists you love. These are recommendations near Doncaster."

The email also includes details of shows by performers slightly closer to home - a concert by Bastille at Scarborough's Open Air Theatre and a show by Little Mix at Hull's KCOM Stadium.
