Boy band The Wanted are about to take a break but not before we give you the chance to see them for free at Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena, writes Graham Walker.
We have three pairs of tickets to be won for their 2014 Word Of Mouth Tour.
The All Time Low and Glad You Came chart-toppers will perform there on March 21, at 7.30pm.
And you can expect all the other big hits such as Walks Like Rihanna, Chasing The Sun, Lightning, Gold Fever, Heart Vacinity and latest tracks, like Show Me Love (America).

Word Of Mouth is their first ever world tour, including UK, Europe, the US and Canada dates.
Last month the band announced they would be taking a hiatus after the tour and will be pursuing solo endeavors for a while, but that they would work again together in the future.
Band mates Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness, Tom Parker and Nathan Sykes formed the group in 2009 and have recorded three studio albums, two EPs and 10 singles.
No stranger to massive live shows, The Wanted have already performed on some of the world’s most iconic stages, including London’s Wembley Stadium and O2 Arena, not to mention New York’s Madison Square Garden and the White House.
Max said: “We can’t wait to get back on the road, for what is our biggest tour so far. One of the best things about being in a band is performing live in front of the fans, and to do that across the world has always been our dream. Every night is going to be one long party!”
Tom Parker said of the album: “It’s taken us two years to make this album and now that it’s finally finished we are all really proud of the time and effort, not just that we put in to it but all the writers and the label too. We think it’s our strongest album to date. We can’t wait for our fans to hear it. They’ve been really patient but hopefully they’ll think it’s worth the wait!”
