Runrig have made their fans’ dreams come true – and announced they are performing an extra farewell concert in Stirling later this year.
Tickets for The Last Dance, due to be held on August 18, sold out in record time. All 25,000 tickets were snapped up shortly after going on sale last Friday.
Fans flooded social media with their disappointment about missing out on bagging a spot at the show.
Now the band has announced they will play another date, on August 17 at Stirling’s City Park.
Calum Macdonald of Runrig said: “Announcing The Last Dance has brought with it so many mixed emotions. We’ve been overwhelmed and humbled by the response and the love from our fans.
“We’re delighted to be able to add an additional concert and promise it will be a night to remember. It will be emotional; it will be fun; it will be entertaining; but amongst all, it will be a special evening saying farewell.”
Les Kidger, Director of LCC Live, the promoter for the concert, said: “Runrig have created unbelievable excitement amongst their fans, all wanting to be part of the final, farewell show. They have embraced the concert with wide arms, by buying tickets in unprecedented numbers, and in doing so have made The Last Dance even more special.
“We appreciate that a lot of people were left disappointed when tickets for theSaturday night show sold out so quickly. We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to add an additional night, and with support from Runrig and Stirling Council, we’re delighted to do so.”
