By Staff Reporter

Jake Bugg, Twin Atlantic and Midge Ure are among a host of acts set to play at a major concert to mark the staging of the Ryder Cup later this year.

The gala will also feature performances by Scottish Ballet, the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, National Theatre Scotland and Scottish Opera and will see both the US and European teams taking part in the golf tournament introduced on stage.

Texas, Nina Nesbitt and Eddi Reader add to the line-up at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow on September 24, with the headline act still to be announced.

The show is being organised by DF Concerts and produced by Kim Gavin, who created the London 2012 closing ceremony.

It will see a number of collaborations between the ballet, theatre, opera and orchestra groups and will also feature some short films building up to the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles.
