Please help!! I found out that there is a Sting Concert at La Citadelle, Arras on 6th July 2013. Which is the nearest airport to this place? Are there any hotels nearby? Thank you!
Even at this early hour in the UK, a simple search on Google "arras airport" comes up with the information that it is Roclincourt, 4km north east of Arras. Doubtless Google can also help you with accommodation in the area.
Lille seems to be the nearest large airport. KLM and Air France fly there from Malta.
From there you can take the train to Arras. There are trains roughly twice an hour, with a journey time from 38 minutes. One-way fare 10.70 euro.

Alternatively you could fly into Paris (with Air Malta, for example). The fastest trains from Paris Gare du Nord to Arras take less than an hour.
Whilst you are waiting for specific hotel recommendations from VT-ers I suggest you have a look at www.booking.com and www.venere.com (both reliable sites). Their interactive maps show all the hotels they list (which will be all, or almost all, of them) so you can see which ones are near the concert location.
Gwened, I imagine the advertising Ricky reported was removed before you looked at the thread again.
