SNOW Patrol’s acoustic gig at the Alhambra sold-out in record time today (Monday).

Fans had gathered outside as early 3.30am to get their hands on tickets for the charity gig on November 2.

The show is in support of the Fife-based The Craws Nest Trust.

Claire Fletcher, PR Manager for the Alhambra commented: “The response has been phenomenal.

“The venue ran a pre-sale from 8am, to ensure as many locals, and charity supporters as possible could get tickets.

“The gig is set to be one of the biggest ever in Fife, as Snow Patrol take to the Alhambra stage. It is set to be an amazing night, and in support of a fantastic charity, The Craws Nest Trust."

Lead singer Gary Lightbody will be joined by Nathan Connolly (lead guitar, backing vocals) and Johnny McDaid (keyboards) as the Dundee-formed rockers play to a Dunfermline audience.

The band formed in 1994 and are widely known for hits such as Chasing Cars, Just Say Yes and Run.

Chasing Cars was crowned the most-played song of the 21st century, earlier this year.

More than £600,000 has been raised in three decades to buy powered wheelchairs, scooters, recliners, and manual chairs for people with mobility needs.

Eleanor Bowman, trustee, added: "We are over the moon that Gary, Nathan & Jonny from Snow Patrol have offered to do an acoustic night for the 30th Anniversary of The Craws Nest Trust in the Alhambra Theatre on November 2.

"They have such a busy schedule and I’m delighted they have been able to fit it in.

"As this is our 30th anniversary we wanted our events to be different from anything we had done in previous years."

Around 180 people have benefited from renewed mobility through the trust.
