WIN tickets for Rival Sons at the Picturedrome — we've got 25 pairs to give away!

You can win tickets to see the LA rock blues band on Tuesday

All the free tickets for a high profile LA rock band’s gig in Holmfirth courtesy of Jack Daniel’s have now gone – but 50 lucky Examiner readers can still go to the show.

For the kind people at the iconic Tennessee Whiskey have kept 50 tickets for the Rival Sons' gig back just for us and we are giving 25 pairs away free in an easy-to-enter competition.

Rival Sons have chosen Holmfirth as the place to kick off the start of their massive world tour on Tuesday and will be arriving by helicopter at Holmfirth Cricket Club around lunchtime before spending several hours in the town in the run-up to the concert.

The Picturedrome gig will be highly intimate compared to most of their shows, which have sold out dozens of times and have been performed all over the world from Johannesburg to Tokyo.

The event is part of an initiative by Jack Daniel’s, called Jack Rocks, who want to bring rock ‘n’ roll out of the big cities into more unusual surroundings and they put up 600 free tickets for allocation on their website – but all have now been snapped up.

It will end with an official after party at the town’s Box Office venue, hosted by Britain’s largest rock ‘n’ roll clubnight This Feeling and featuring a DJ set from Radio 1’s future Chart Show star Clara Amfo.

After Holmfirth Rival Sons will go on to play in UK cities such as Leeds, Glasgow and London at the iconic Roundhouse venue, before heading to Europe, Brazil, Canada and USA.
