The Adam Smith Theatre box office was swamped by Raith Rovers fans who snapped up all the tickets for the Hall of Fame 2015 in just over 24 hours.

A queue had formed before the doors were even open last Friday and extra staff had to be brought in to deal with the unprecedented demand for the show on November 9 next year.

Alistair Cameron, a member of the organising committee with Ally Gourlay, Allan Crow and Willie MacGregor, said they were “overwhelmed” by the response.

“There are no words to describe it really,” he said.

“We’ve been blown away by the feedback to this year’s show and the response to the tickets going on sale has been incredible.”

Alistair said that they had put more tickets on sale this year but even that wasn’t enough to satisfy the demand.

“We had cut down the number of tickets that we are going to make available to VIP guests and sponsors to try and make the maximum amount available to the public.

“There are only sponsor packages available. That’s the only way that anyone will be able to get to see the show who hasn’t already bought a ticket.”

A spokesman for the theatre said there hadn’t been such a rush for tickets at the venue in two decades.

“The last time we had a show sell out so quickly here was for Billy Connolly about 20 years ago.

“Some shows go quite quickly but never in a day.

“It’s been pretty amazing and quite unique.”

Alistair said the committee have already made plans for next year’s show.

“After this we really need to get our act together! “ he said.
