Gladiator movie star Russell Crowe has confirmed he and his band will perform in Inverness this summer.

And it looks highly likely that his gig will be at Inverness Highland Games on July 13.

His announcement comes just a week after Inverness Provost Glynis Campbell Sinclair posted a message on Highland Council’s social media channels inviting the Australian actor to play at the event.

The Provost responded after the star had posted a message, highlighted by The Inverness Courier, on his X account, stating: “What about a gig in Inverness? Any Fraser of Lovat relatives want to come?”

The Provost then posted a video on social media inviting the Hollywood star to bring his band to the Inverness Highland Games this summer.

Crowe has now posted a message on X confirming his band would be performing in Inverness in July.

Provost Campbell Sinclair said: “It’s absolutely fabulous news that Hollywood superstar Russell Crowe has chosen to bring his band to Inverness.

“Time to dust off that kilt Russell and we really look forward to welcoming you at the Inverness Highland Games on 13 July. Get in touch and let us know what you need to make this visit really special.”

She added: “Inverness Highland Games is already a much loved and popular event in the annual event calendar. The prospect of Russell Crowe’s presence would make this year’s event extra special.

“As I said in my invite video, he will no doubt get the chance to meet and greet the Lovat Frasers in the Clan Tent!”

Crowe believes he has ancestral connections with the Lovat Frasers and their homeland in the Beauly area north of Inverness.
