A spokesperson for the venue said: "The band’s energetic show features all your favourite hits – from Sultans of Swing to Brothers in Arms, Walk of Life and of course the legendary Money for Nothing. The band also includes versions from On the Night and Live@The BBC.

"We are excited to once again open our season working with Fallfest, to stage this amazing premium show."

The show is on Saturday, September 17, at 7.45pm.
