The population of Montrose will be “almost doubled” in one night as Bryan Adams takes to the stage in the town on Sunday.

The transformation of the East Links into an outdoor music venue has started for Adams’ only outdoor show in Scotland as part of his Get Up Tour.

Work began on setting up the stage yesterday (Wednesday).

The last batch of tickets for the concert will be available from the MoFest HQ, on New Wynd, Montrose, on Saturday from 10am to 5pm.

There will also be a free music set from the Moonshiners between 1 and 2pm, to which all are welcome.

The performance by Bryan Adams is being organised in partnership between concert promoter LCC Live and the Montrose Music Festival and is the headline act of this year’s MoFest.

David Paton, MoFest chairman, said: “The MoFest team are so excited about having Bryan Adams play this weekend, the site is almost complete and is looking great, big, but great!

“The amount of tickets sold for this has surpassed our expectations and the town will be almost doubled on Sunday with the amount of people coming, which is just incredible for our little town.

“We have to thank everyone for their continuing support for the festival and its events.”

Gates for the show open at 6pm on Sunday.

Revellers are asked to arrive in plenty of time to park and make their way through the entrance gates before Bryan Adams takes to the stage at approximately 8pm.

There is no support act.

People travelling from out of town for the show should now be able to travel by train as the strikes planned by ScotRail workers have been called off for the time being to allow further talks with union bosses.
