Kyle Falconer will be playing a live set at Europa Music in Stirling

The View played an infamous gig at Falkirk’s Martell on July 4, 2007, which saw a sound man sustain a cut lip and the band’s bass player launch himself at a heckler.

A secret warm-up show for their subsequent appearance at that year’s T-in-the-Park, the ill-fated gig prompted the band to vow never to play in Falkirk again.

However, Kyle, now in is 30s, played a solo show at the very same venue – now known as Temple – back in September 2019.
