KELVIN Tatum and Nigel Pearson, the voices of speedway, are to visit Sheffield with their winter tour for the first time later this month.

A special evening with the commentators will take place in the Panorama Room at Owlerton on Wednesday January 30 (8pm).

‘Tatum and Pearson Live’ hits the road for a sixth straight winter with four dates throughout the country in the build-up to the new season.

Tigers co-promoter Damien Bates said: “We’re pleased to welcome the lads here, they’ve got some pretty good stories to tell and from what I’m told an evening with them is very enjoyable.

“Kelvin was a top rider and he has some interesting stories to tell from his racing career and we’re pleased to welcome him to Sheffield.

“Nigel is a familiar figure here having been the stadium presenter for Sheffield before his TV career started. It’s a nice way to build up to the new season and I’m looking forward to seeing plenty of Sheffield fans there.”

Tatum said: “Nigel and I like to have some fun on nights like these and we are both looking forward to Sheffield.

“I talk about the day I got my MBE from the Queen, plus my experiences with the likes of the late, great Kenny Carter and Simon Wigg.

“We also have some banter about our time on tour going to the Grand Prix and some of the people we have come across, plus give an insight into how a live TV broadcast works.

“I’m looking forward to a great night at Sheffield, I have a lot of time for the management there.”

Tickets cost £10 and are available online from now.
