MANIC Street Preachers superstar James Dean Bradfield will play for just 65 fans in Sheffield on Thursday night - and YOU could be going.

The Star has teamed up with show organisers Real Radio for this super Intimate Performance.

And we have a pair of tickets to give away.

The 30-minute show will feature the Welsh band’s lead guitarist and vocalist, starting at 7pm.

It coincides with the forthcoming release of their greatest hits album, National Treasures – The Complete Singles, to be released later this month.

The album includes all of the band’s singles from 1991’s Motown Junk to 2011’s This Is the Day.

The Manics, as they are know to fans, are an alternative rock band from Blackwood, formed in 1986 and today’s full line up consists of James, Nicky Wire and Sean Moore.

Born in Pontypool, Monmouthshire, James also has a solo career and has played several Manics tracks on his one-man shows. He has performed at the V Festival and completed his first full UK tour in 2006.
