RUNRIG fans will have another chance to see their much-lauded farewell gigs in Stirling when a documentary on the Last Dance is premiered in Glasgow.

Two final concerts on a massive open-air stage against the backdrop of Stirling Castle last August saw more than 50,000 fans watch them bring the curtain down on a 45-year career.

Members of the band will appear on stage during An Evening with Runrig for an informal chat with broadcaster Roddy Hart.

Runrig founding member Rory Macdonald said the last night would stay with them all: “It’s the love of performing that kept the group going for over 45 years.

“Our farewell performance brought all this to a close – a shared, visceral experience that will stay with us forever. In many ways, our bond with the fans has been our success and the film illustrates this throughout.”

The Last Dance – Farewell Concert will receive its first screening at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall on August 17. It was produced by Scotland’s BAFTA-winning digital entertainment company, Blazing Griffin, whose managing director Naysun Alae-Carew, said: “It’s been an emotional ride working with Runrig.

“Feeling the spirit of the band and the energy of thousands of devoted fans, set against the dramatic setting of Stirling Castle, gives you the sense that you’re experiencing musical history. It’s been an honour to work on this and we hope our team has captured that spirit on film to create an epic music film.”
