Proclaimers’ fans started queuing outside the Corran Halls from 6am on Saturday waiting for the Box Office to open at 9am

Around 200 Proclaimers fans queued outside the Corran Halls on Saturday when tickets for the band’s Oban gig in August went on sale.

One man  got there three hours before the box office doors opened at 9am with a whole line of others not far behind.

Ali Martin from Benderloch was one of them and brought her  friends along.

‘I always hope they will play at Oban Live but this will be the next best thing!’ she said.

On Monday there were still some tickets left for the August 4 gig but they were selling fast at the venue which can take up to 1,000 people.

Tickets on The Proclaimers website had almost sold out by the end of the weekend but more were expected to be released.

Twins Craig and Charlie Reid last gigged in Oban in 2009.
