SHOPPERS at a Greenock mobile phone store got a shock surprise at the tills - a live gig featuring two Inverclyde acts.

Soloist Fallen Arches, real name Colin Bell, joined musicians Andrew Cummings and Ben Speirs, from local band Tempe, for a unique performance in the O2 store in the Oak Mall.

The shop gig was to promote a charity concert in Gourock tomorrow night in aid of Children In Poverty Inverclyde.

Fallen Arches and the full Tempe line-up will performing in the Gamble Halls along with fellow local bands The Super Pumas and Quartermass.

The gig is being organised by Greenock promoter Gareth Gonet, who runs B12 Entertainment, in partnership with the O2 shop.

Gareth said: "It was really good. "People were walking by wondering what was going on so it was a good opportunity for me to hand out flyers to let them know about the gig. "It was something a bit different.

"I'd be looking to do something like that for a while but we've not had any premises to just pitch up and serenade people so O2 were great in making that happen. "It's now all go for Saturday and I'm really looking forward to it."

The event, called 'Tinsel & Tunes' starts at 7.30pm and tickets, costing £5, are available from the O2 shop, from any of the acts or on the door tomorrow night.
