Such was the buzz surrounding the event that local Facebook pages were inundated with ticket requests ahead of the concert.

With a capacity crowd at the venue, there was a huge queue stretching along the seafront before the music started.

But it appears the gig was worth the wait, with revellers taking to Facebook to describe it as an "amazing night".

Fans were treated to favourites such as Red, Red Wine and Kingston Town.
