INDIE legends Texas are making their hotly-anticipated return to the region - and we have two tickets to give away to one lucky reader.

During their celebrated 20-year career, Texas have released seven sparkling albums and with hits like Summer Sun and Black-eyed Boy, they are adored by the public and their peers.

They sold 30 million albums across the globe and in Britain they’ve had four chart topping albums, while the songwriting team of singer Sharleen Spiteri and bassist Johnny McElhone won an Ivor Novello Award in 1998.

“We needed a rest from Texas and so did the public,” explains Sharleen. “But, there was never any question that it was the end.”

“People really liked us y’know, but even though there’s so much goodwill and love towards us, I’m not sure people really remember how big we were.”

She added: “We’ve got a huge back catalogue and we can’t wait to embrace the grittiness of Texas live again.”

Tickets for Texas at Doncaster Racecourse, priced between £28-£38 for adults, and £7.70 for children and are available online at or by calling 0114 256 5567. Gates open at 4pm and there will be six races prior to the band’s performance.

To be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets just answer this simple question: Q) Complete the name of this classic Texas hit single - Summer...a) Boy, b) House or c) Sun.
