Thousands of fans – maybe even some from Falkirk – are expected to pour into Stirling for the event, which will have Stirling Castle as a backdrop.

Councillor Chris Kane, no stranger to the local music scene, said: “We have a fantastic events field at Stirling City Park with Stirling Castle providing a wow factor backdrop. Texas knows that and I can’t wait to welcome the band to the city in August 2022.”
