And a percentage of the tickets are being reserved for fans living in Kirkcaldy.

It is one of several towns on the priority list.

Some 60 per cent of the tickets will go to people in Perth and Kinross, with a further quarter earmarked for Kirkcaldy, Dundee and Falkirk.

The remainder will then go on general sale.

The concerts, which are backed by local councils, run from Friday May 25 to Monday 28, and bring some of the biggest names in the music business to the palace setting.

Perth will join Swansea, Coventry and Belfast in hosting the BBC concerts.

Gallacher, formerly of Oasis, will be joined by, among others, Billy Ocean and Snow Patrol.

This year sees the BBC’s Big Weekend format extended, and, for the first time, tickets will not be free.

Day tickets go on sale from Monday, February 12, priced at £18 plus booking fee.
