STILL GAME actor Greg Hemphill has vowed to put on as many shows as it takes to keep fans happy.
The funnyman told fans on twitter “No Still Game fan gets left behind.”
The tweet comes as fans flocked to the site to buy pre- tickets to the Still Game stage show next October – crashing the site.
The SSE Hydro arena in Glasgow is the largest venue in Scotland, will be the home for the Still Game comeback, eagerly anticipated by thousands of fans.
Hemphill tweeted: “Hearing about the Hydro site crashing. We will do as many shows as it takes to get you all in. No Still Game fan gets left behind.”
Amy MacDonald said: “I’m so chuffed for you guys. What an amazing response. I may also have bought 14 tickets and contributed to the crashing…”
Jonathan Melville said: “Good work for a Friday”
The stars of Still Game agreed to play eight extra comeback shows after fans snapped up tens of thousands of tickets in hours.
With 12 performances now scheduled at Glasgow’s 12,000-seat Hydro arena, Jack and Victor’s long-awaited return looks set to be seen by 144,000 people.
Tickets for the original four nights, from September 30 to October 3 next year, went on pre-sale on Wednesday to fans registered with the Hydro’s Ticketsoup booking service.
Less than 24 hours later, they had almost sold out.
