Texas will take to the stage in Inverness on July 3 next year.

The band, which has been making music for 35 years, last performed in Inverness in 2017 to a sell-out crowd.

They will be performing hits from latest album ‘Hi’ at the show, including ‘Mr Haze’, as well as a range of tunes from their massive back catalogue.

‘Hi’ is the band’s 10th studio album and debuted at number three in the UK Albums Chart.

Announcing the Inverness show, Texas’s lead singer and guitarist Sharleen Spiteri, said: “We’re on a ‘Hi’ to be heading back on the road next year, which includes a trip to the Big Top in Bught Park, Inverness.

"We can’t wait!

“Our fans in Inverness always give us such a lovely welcome – we performed to sell-out crowds in the city in 2013 and 2017.

"It’s definitely time to go back and perform some of our greatest hits, as well as tracks from our latest album, ‘Hi’.”

Claire Kidger, director of LCC Live, is excited to bring Texas back to Inverness.

She said: “This announcement marks the return of live music, which has been much longed for, after a long absence.

"We’re absolutely delighted to be hosting ‘Big Top – Under Canvas’ in Bught Park next July.

“Texas may be celebrating 35 years in music, but as one of Scotland’s most iconic bands, they continue to make great music, are simply amazing live, and we’re really looking forward to welcoming them back to Inverness as part of our series of Live in Inverness shows, taking place next year.

"We hope you can join us for a fabulous night of live music!”

She added: “This is the first of several live music shows that LCC Live will be organising over the coming year.

"We’re still in the process of finalising those plans and will make further announcements as soon as we can.”
