STEVIE McCRORIE brought the house down with a sold-out homecoming show at Alloa Town Hall on Friday.

The Clacks favourite pulled out all the stops, as he treated his faithful fans to a number of surprises on the night.

Not only did he play full band for a few tracks, he also turned in an acoustic segment as well.

And there was even a choir on stage, with members of Soul Nation helping out on a couple of songs.

Support on the night came in the form of Cody Feechan and Aaron Smith from Delphi, for what was a special night for Stevie.

And though the Alva singer will be taking a little break from headline shows for a while, he insists he's "not going away anytime soon".

He told the Advertiser: "It was a brilliant night; the crowd were amazing, and everything, really, just went to plan.

"We had a section with the full band and there was an acoustic section. And it was great having the choir there too; they added an amazing dynamic to the whole thing.

"I wanted to put a lot of work into it – I haven't really done a big local show in the last two years.

"And it was sold out; the place was rammed on the night. It was just such a great way to start off the year."

In the meantime, Stevie will turn his attention to writing some new material, while hopefully making some festival appearances in the summer.

He added: "I've worked really hard to try and establish myself as an artist, and to not just be Stevie from The Voice.

"A lot of guys will leave a show like that and just disappear. But I know how to put a show together and how to put a band together; I've been doing this a long time.

"And I'm not going away anytime soon – I'll be doing this the rest of my life."

One of the many delighted fans on Friday night was Rebecca Anne Currie, who came through from Stirling for the gig.

And the 19-year-old, who suffers from cerebral palsy, got more than she bargained for when she was invited backstage to meet the band after the show.

Rebecca said: "The show was amazing, I have loved Stevie since he was on The Voice and know everyone of his songs by heart.

"I met him before at the Stirling Christmas Lights Switch-On and he was so lovely to me.

"My friend Fiona is friends with Matt, the drummer, and she asked him to fix it for me to meet him. He came off stage to give me a wee kiss and at the end I was invited backstage to meet him and the band, and his family.

"Everyone was amazing with me and I will always be his biggest fan."
