The doors will open at 7pm and the band are set to take the stage at 8pm. There’s no support act scheduled for the gig.

You should be aware that bags may be subject to security searches and that the venue does not permit bags larger than 30cm x 30cm x 15cm. There is also no cloakroom to store your belongings.


While there is limited availability, there are still tickets if you want to attend the performance.

To book tickets online, head over to the Edinburgh International Festival website.There are two ticket options you can choose from:

- Main hall, unreserved standing

- Balcony, unreserved seating (maximum two seats together)

Both tickets cost £30, so you can choose whether you’ll be seated or standing without worrying about paying more for one over the other.

There’s a £1 per ticket EIF booking fee, so be aware that it’ll be an extra £1 for each ticket you buy on top of the ticket price.


With their last performance having been on the Boaty Weekender, their setlist for Friday night could follow a similar setlist.

At the Boaty Weekender, they played:

- It’s all in my mind

- God knows it’s true

- Everything is falling apart

- Hold on

- Catholic education

Concerty has created what they think the probably setlist will be based on previous concerts:

- About you

- Start again

- The cabbage

- Everything is falling apart

- Only with you

- Catholic education

- Alcoholiday

- The darkest part of the night

- Your love is the place where I come from

- Planets

- Verisimilitude

- I don’t want control of you

- It’s a bad world

- I’m in love

- My uptight life

- The concept

It also predicts that, should there be an encore, Teenage Fanclub will play:

- The fall

- Everything flows
