The Don Valley Stadium was where Olympic gold medal winner Jessica Ennis once trained. It was home to many athletic events and was a great rock venue. Bon Jovi, the Rolling Stones, U2, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Michael Jackson and Sheffield’s Arctic Monkeys (among others) all played to audiences of 40,000 or more. Sadly the much talked about Olympic legacy of 2012 hasn’t reached Sheffield and the Don Valley Stadium is now dust.
