Just the ticket: Amy Macdonald’s STV Appeal gigathon tickets on sale

Tickets for Amy Macdonald’s mammoth gigathon on June 12 are now on sale, with the Scottish singer-songwriter gearing up to carry out the ultimate musical challenge – performing five gigs all in one day, for the STV Appeal.

Amy, who has had success with huge hits including This Is The Life and Mr Rock N Roll, will be travelling all over Scotland as she tries to raise awareness and cash for the STV Appeal, which helps the country’s most vulnerable children.

Fans will get a chance to hear some of Amy’s biggest hits as well as some of her new material from her third album, Life In a Beautiful Light, such as new single Slow It Down, which is released on June 11.

The latest LP follows up from Amy’s two first hugely successful albums, This Is The Life and A Curious Thing, which have sold over four million copies to date, making Amy one of the UK’s most successful singers at home and abroad.

Amy revealed that she can’t wait to get on the stage for the very special event. "This is the biggest number of performances I'll have ever done in one day and I’m looking forward to it enormously,” she said.

“It's going to be exhausting but so exciting - and I'm delighted to be doing this for the STV Appeal 2012, which supports Scotland's most vulnerable children."

Amy’s five acoustic performances kick off in Aberdeen at the city’s Lemon Tree venue, before the singer moves to Duke’s Corner in Dundee.

Amy will then perform in The Tolbooth in Stirling, before moving to The Caves in Edinburgh, finishing up her busy day with a closing performance in SWG3 in Glasgow.  

Adding to the fun of the day, renowned Scottish comedian Bruce Devlin will be on hand to entertain the crowds before Amy’s performances, and singer- songwriter Karima Francis will also give a short support set at the Glasgow performance.

There will also be an after-gigathon party at SWG3 following Amy’s final performance of the day, marking what it’s hoped will be a very special day for the STV Appeal 2012.

Tickets are available now and are sure to be flying off the shelves, so make sure to buy yours now. You can get them from www.ticketsoup.com. Tickets are priced at £10 each, with all the money going directly to the STV Appeal 2012.  A small booking fee will apply.

Amy fan will also be able to keep up with the musician’s progress on stv.tv as she makes her way around the country on her gigathon mission, and footage from the Five A Day tour will be shown on the STV Appeal show later in the year.

The STV Appeal 2012 is committed to helping children and young people affected by poverty in Scotland. Launched in 2011 by The Hunter Foundation and STV, The STV Appeal raised almost £1.3m in its first year.The STV Appeal spends 100 per cent of the money raised on the kids who most need it. Every single penny raised stays in Scotland. As in 2011, the Scottish Government has once again committed to match funding the total amount raised, meaning even more money goes towards children who need our help.
