CHRISTMAS has come early for Big Country fans as the legendary Dunfermline band announce a special hometown return to PJ Molloys.

And tickets are selling fast - with the venue announcing that half were already sold just two hours after launch at 9am this morning.

The group enjoyed huge chart success in the 1980s with a string of hits such as 'Fields of Fire', 'In a Big Country', 'Chance' and 'Wonderland'.

It will be their last gig of the year, taking place on December 22, after a series of shows which see them perform across England, Northern Ireland, and the Republic of Ireland.

Organisers have warned that tickets are "extremely limited", but if you move quick they are available online here.
