Just as we are recovering from the press conference that Alex Salmond held this morning and editing our video, we have heard that his debut Fringe show has been extended (for the second time) to include another night on Sunday 20 August.

Tickets for this date are on sale now. 

The former First Minister will now perform 18 shows back-to-back to more than 6,000 people over the course of the two week run.(There are no somersaults in the show but expect a bit of to and fro between Alex and his guests!)

Speaking this morning, Mr Salmond said: “It is incredible that we have had to extend the show not once, but twice even before the first performance. I am delighted at the response from Fringe-goers. It is great to see that they are as excited to start the festival of fun as my guests and I are.”
