The Human League.

The veteran synth-pop trio of Philip Oakey, Joanne Catherall and Susan Ann Sulley, wil return to the intimate Steel Hall setting of the Attercliffe venue on Friday, December 7, 2018.

The Human League’s new tour, Red Live 2018, will feature the very special guests, Midge Ure’s Band Electronica.

The Steel Hall is described as Sheffield’s newest fixed capacity venue with a 4,000 seated or 4,500 standing capacity, housed within the Sheffield Arena main hall, but designed to bring the audience closer to the event in a medium capacity venue – drapes dress the venue “to give an intimate feel so any customer attending a Steel Hall show will not feel they are watching a show in a ‘cut down’ arena”.
