A new business has come up with an unusual opening offer for customers who love Mexican food ... and Sir Tom Jones.

To mark this Saturday’s Falkirk concert by the veteran crooner, Habaneros is giving away a free pair of knickers with every burrito!

There’s a range of Mexican street food on offer but everyone buying a burrito will get a free pair of knickers

Owner Malcolm Binnie said since opening the takeaway diner last weekend at the corner of Kirk Wynd and Manor Street business had been good – but he is expecting fans of the Welsh singing legend to be queuing out the door on Friday and Saturday.

He said: “We thought it would a good idea to mark both our arrival in town and that of Sir Tom Jones.

“There’s a range of Mexican street food on offer but everyone buying a burrito will get a free pair of knickers. What they do with them after that is up to them!”

Over 10,000 tickets have already been sold for the Rock the Stadium concert and, with only a handful left for the main stand, the organisers have released more tickets for the north and south stands.

Standing room tickets for the pitch are also still available.

The Rock the Stadium concert is being organised by the events arm of Falkirk Football Club.

Director Andy Thomson said: “There’s a real sense of excitement building around the football club and within the local community as fans from across Scotland get ready to welcome Sir Tom to Falkirk for his only Scottish show this year.”

Two months in to his 2015 US and European tour, Sir Tom said his show would appeal to music lovers of all ages.

He said: “I promise a good show in Falkirk.

“My singing voice is still as strong as ever, though as you get older, your voice lowers and so my tone and range has gone from tenor to a baritone. My lower tones are much richer than they were.”

Gates open at 6pm with the first support act on at 6.45pm.
