LOVE cars? Live for music? Then this is the competition for you.
Because this week we have teamed up with Live Nation to offer our readers the chance to win 10 must-have pairs of tickets to any one of 10 concerts being performed at the British International Motor Show in July and August.
The nightly concerts will be performed in the purpose-built dockside arena each night of the show (July 23 - Aug 2). So the winners of our tickets will not only be able to see the act of their choice, they can also browse the 600 cars which will be on display at ExCel for the biggest show in the UK.
The line up includes:
Wednesday, July 23: UB40
Thursday, July 24: Alice Cooper
Friday, July 25: Status Quo
Saturday, July 26: Squeeze
Sunday, July 27: Here & Now 80s Show
Monday, July 28: Blondie
Wednesday, July 30: Deep Purple
Thursday, July 31: Chicago
Friday, August 1: Jools Holland featuring Marc Almond
Saturday, August 2: Meat Loaf with Arno Carstens
So thanks to Live Nation we have got a pair of tickets to give away for each performance. So if you fancy some pop piano, the Jools Holland show on August 1 might be for you. But if you want to transport yourself back to the 1980s, the Here & Now show on July 27 will be showcasing Bananarama, Belinda Carlisle, Paul Young, Toyah, Kid Creole and the Coconuts, Midge Ure and Nick Heyward.
