Legendary rock band The Boomtown Rats are to play Doncaster - during their first live tour for more than quarter of a century.

The band, best remembered for hits such as I Don’t Like Mondays and Rat Trap, will appear at The Dome on November 7.

The date, part of a UK tour will be the first time the group have played live since their final gig in 1986.

Frontman Sir Bob Geldof was instrumental in forming Band Aid and Live Aid in response to the Ethiopian famine of the mid 1980s and was later knighted for his charitable work.

The Boomtown Rats – Bob Geldof on vocals, Pete Briquette on bass, Simon Crowe on drums and Garry Roberts on guitar - will kick off the tour in the autumn and will also be releasing a new album.
