A GLASGOW comedian has revealed that he is "gutted" after one of his shows was cancelled due to the venue closing with immediate effect.

Comedian, Gary Faulds, posted a statement yesterday expressing his disappointment in having to cancel his show in Motherwell on September 22 as he states it was an issue that "no one seen coming".

We previously reported that the Motherwell Concert Hall and Theatre had been forced to close after a survey discovered RAAC in the roof, as well as water leaks in the building.

The show in the North Lanarkshire town was part of Fauld's 2023 Frontier tour which was expected to be a sell-out.

The comedian, who grew up in North Glasgow, has confirmed that tickets will be refunded as well as offering alternative shows such as Helensburgh and Lanark Memorial Hall for those who are eager to see him.

Faulds' statement said: "Motherwell Concert Hall show is now cancelled. Absolutely gutted about it. But it’s an issue no one seen coming.

"No options to reschedule the date as even the venue don’t know a time scale.

"If you are looking for alternative shows we have Helensburgh this weekend or Lanark Memorial Hall in November

"Tickets will be refunded and if you have any issues regarding tickets please contact Motherwell Concert Hall and Theatre"

One user commented saying: "Husband and I are so gutted! Been waiting over a year for this. However would rather be safe lol."

Whilst another said: "Awk no, that's soo gutting! X" in which Faulds replied saying: "I know, s***e for all the staff. Hope they don’t lose any jobs over it x"
