The Handsome Family to perform in Sheffield

American duo The Handsome Family are to visit Sheffield and Manchester on their UK tour next year.

Brett and Rennie Sparks will perform at Sheffield Memorial Hall on March 18 and The Martin Harris Centre, Manchester, on March 21.

Earlier this year, T Bone Burnett chose their 2003 song Far From Any Road as the theme tune to the cult HBO TV series True Detective. The song has now had over 5 million YouTube views and, as a result, the band have been playing sold-out gigs across Europe, Australia and the USA.

Tickets for their UK dates are on sale, priced £15 for Sheffield (www.sheffieldcityhall.
