One of the UK’s most successful bands has announced their return, with a huge stadium and arena live tour kicking off in Sheffield next weekend.

The trio - Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald - play 29 dates across 15 cities in the UK and Ireland, starting on April 13 and 14 at Utilita Arena Sheffield.

There are still a small handful of tickets available for each show. Unfortunately for hopeful latecomers, the remaining tickets are priced at upwards of £130 on Saturday, and from £200 on Sunday.

If you act quick, you might be able to get second-hand tickets from Ticketmaster’s official resale channel, which look to be more around the £80 mark.

If you do buy on Ticketmaster, make sure to download the app and get your tickets ready ahead of the event.

How can I get to Utilita Arena?

Supertram: The Arena has its very own stop - Arena / Olympic Legacy Park. This tram stop is served by the Yellow Route and Tram Train, both of which bypass the traffic giving you a fast, smooth and reliable way to get to your event. There’s no need to buy a ticket before you get on board - there is a conductor on every tram.
