AND, they’re off! No, we’re not talking about the red noses worn by The Wanted to perform this year’s official Comic Relief song, Gold Fever.

The chart-topping boy band are lined up to launch a new season of live outdoor music concerts after the horse racing at South Yorkshire’s world famous Doncaster Raccourse - home of the oldest classic race the St Leger.

The first Live Music After Racing spectacular this year will feature BRIT nominated five piece The Wanted on Saturday, May 14.

Tickets are available now from the racecourse but also from Sheffield Arena and its Arena Ticket Shop - now a one stop shop for events, concerts and shows at venues throughout the region.

To celebrate, the Arena is giving Star readers the chance to win TEN tickets - five lucky winners get a pair each, plus entry to the horse meeting.

Competition entrants must be aged 18 or over.

The Wanted, a five piece consisting of Jay McGuiness, Nathan Sykes, Siva Kaneswaran, Max George and Tom Parker, were formed in 2009 after a mass audition organised by Jayne Collins, the same woman who put together girl group The Saturdays.

They hit the top spot in the UK singles chart with their debut, All Time Low - ahead of their smash hit self-titled first album, which was released in October.

The Wanted sung this year’s Comic Relief song as part of the fun filled extravaganza which has raised millions for good causes, helping poor and disadvantaged people, at home and abroad.

Now it’s the turn of five lucky Star readers to be laughing - with tickets to see the band at Doncaster Racecourse.
