Claire Fletcher, PR manager for the Alhambra, said: “The response was phenomenal.

“We ran a pre-sale from 8:00 am on Monday 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.”

The charity, previously known the East Neuk Wheelchair Appeal, is set to enjoy another big fundraiser as part of its 30th anniversary cedlebrations.

Nedws of the gig came just days after Sir Chris Hoy headlined a fundraising night at the Alhambra for the organisation which was launched by the Bowman family in 1989, and has raised around £600,000 to buy powered wheelchairs, scooters, recliners and manual chairs for people with a mobility needs.
