The Skids to play hometown shows

Reformed punks play two dates in Dunfermline

Reformed Scottish punks The Skids are to play two hometown shows ahead of their appearance at this year’s T In The Park festival.

The band, celebrating their 30th anniversary, will play the Glen Pavilion in Dunfermline on July 4 and 5.

Initially only one show was announced, but the group had to add a second night due to demand.

The band then head to T In the Park to play the Main Stage on July 8.

Guitarist Stuart Adamson, who died in 2001, will be replaced by his former bandmate in Big Country, Bruce Watson.
