Runrig have announced that they are splitting up after 45 years together. The Celtic rock band will close their career with a farewell show in Stirling next August.

“This has been an enormous and difficult decision for us”, says founder member Calum Macdonald. “But through the machinations of longevity and circumstance, we feel that the timing is now right for a positive and celebratory conclusion”.

Of the farewell show, drummer Iain Bayne adds: “We want to make this a true celebration of the band’s career, and the special bond we have with so many people from around the world, although it will be with heavy hearts when we strike the last note”.

Billed as ‘The Last Dance’, the band’s 25,000 capacity final show will take place at Stirling City Park on 18 Aug 2018. Tickets will go on sale this Friday at 10am.
