CHART-TOPPING boy band JLS, Da Ya Think I’m Sexy star Rod Stewart, classical quartet Il Divo and opera beauty Katherine Jenkins are coming to town – they have all announced dates next year at Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena.

But fans of Everybody In Love hit makers JLS have a long wait. They are not here until Tuesday, December 10.

Music icon Stewart, promising all his hits, including Maggie May, Baby Jane and The First Cut Is The Deepest, will bring his Live The Life Tour to the Attercliffe venue on Sunday, June 23.

First up, Il Divo and Katherine Jenkins unite for the first time to perform as part of their co-headline UK & European Tour, which arrives in Sheffield on Friday, April 12.

Tickets for all three shows go on general sale at various times this Friday, November 16.

Since JLS came second on The X Factor in 2008, they have been one of the show’s most successful acts, with five number one singles and more than six million record sales.

New album Evolution features the band’s next single, Give Me Life, which is out on Sunday, December 23.

Tickets for their tour will go on sale on Friday, at 10am.

Stewart – who is about to release his first ever Christmas album, Merry Christmas, Baby – has sold more than 100 million records worldwide with six consecutive number one albums.

Tickets to see him at the Arena, priced £60, £65 & £70, are on sale from 9am.

Il Divo and Katherine Jenkins, with more than 30 million album sales between them, have been at the forefront of a classical-crossover revolution in recent years.
