A Scottish rock band are set to play Fraserburgh next month for the second year in a row with all proceeds going to charity.

Big Country will play Fraserburgh Leisure Centre on May 14, supported by Madness tribute band Complete Madness.

Last year the gig, organised by Bryan Falconer, Ian Robertson and Martin Bain raised £4300 which was given to local charity causes.

Mr Falconer says that this year’s gig is only possible due to the huge numbers at last year’s show - with some fans travelling from as far as Birmingham to see the concert.

Mr Falconer said: “Because the local people came out to the event in huge numbers this is one of the reasons we will continue to do more concerts, but will need continuous support from the town to carry on.

“We got some sponsorship from local companies and that was a massive help so we can’t thank them enough for that.”

Mr Falconer said the team is looking forward to hosting another show in the Leisure Centre after the “brilliant night” had last year.

He said: “Not only is it great having a concert on your own door step but we’re sure many local businesses would have benefited from this event.

“We know the likes of local Hotels, B&B’s, pubs/ restaurants and taxis etc were very busy on the night which is great.”

Tickets for the gig cost £25 and are available from Fraserburgh Leisure Centre, Motor Parts and S&J’s.
