Venue bosses have performed an 11th-hour U-turn after banning a kind-hearted promoter from accepting HMV vouchers as entry to a gig after the company collapsed.

The owners of the HMV Picture House feared they would be tainted if they allowed useless vouchers to be used as payment to an upcoming Spin Doctors gig.

Gavin Hogg, 51, whose company GMH Promotions runs music gigs at venues around the city, had offered to accept them for entry to the concert next Wednesday at the Lothian Road venue.
