A summer concert at Bught Park has been postponed to next year.
The Big Top, headlined by Skipinnish, will now take place on Saturday, July 2, 2022.
The event was originally set to be held at the Inverness venue last summer but was pushed back due to the pandemic.
Skipinnish, whose contemporary Celtic music has become hugely popular in recent years, will be joined in the Big Top by several special guests – details will be announced closer to the event.
Band co-founder Angus MacPhail said: “While not a huge surprise given the continued uncertainty of the pandemic, this is a huge blow to Skipinnish. However, there is nothing else for it but to focus on the future and look forward to having even more of a party when it happens in 2022.
"We would like to thank our fans again for their continued support, patience and understanding. We cannot wait to see you all next year.”
Tickets already purchased for the postponed show will be valid for the rescheduled date.
Claire Kidger, director of event organiser LCC Live, said: “We’re so disappointed that we won’t be able to host Skipinnish in Inverness this summer. Shows like this take a considerable amount of time to put together, and with current uncertainties, we have made the difficult decision to delay Skipinnish’s Inverness show until 2022.
“That also gives us more time to work with the band to ensure that we host a night to remember in July 2022, when Skipinnish perform their biggest show to date.”
A limited number of tickets are available for this show and can be purchased from Ticketline (www.ticketline.co.uk; 0844 888 9991) and in person from Cafferys in Eastgate Shopping Centre.
