Comedy legend Billy Connolly has added a fifth date to the Capital run of his Scottish High Horse Tour tour.

The 71-year-old is taking to the stage at the Usher Hall in the autumn.

And today it was revealed he will perform on Wednesday, October 15th – in addition to shows on October 4th, 5th, 7th and 8th.

Frustrated fans hit out last week when tickets went on sale and the venue’s ­website crashed. Many saw duplicate ­payments taken from their bank accounts and didn’t ­receive confirmation they had ­secured tickets.

The box office will open for the new show on Monday at 9am. An Usher Hall spokeswoman said: “We would ask all our customers to please be as patient as possible.”
