The Voice USA runner-up Terry McDermott, who hails from Pitmedden, will be performing at Peterhead Football Club next month.

Peterhead Football Club will play host at The Voice USA winner Terry McDermott later this year as part of his autumn tour.

Pitmedden native and popular recording artist Terry will perform three concerts in his home country in September, with dates in the Blue Toon, Aberdeen and Edinburgh.

The Peterhead gig will take place in the Blue Toon Lounge on Friday, September 23, but only a limited number of tickets are available.

Commenting on his forthcoming tour, Terry said: “Returning home is always a thrill.

“Coming from the North-East I love to see Peterhead do well. I hope to see some familiar faces at these shows.”

PFC general manager, Martin Johnston told the Buchanie: “We are delighted Terry has chosen to perform for us.

“I have enjoyed watching his career over the years, and look forward to seeing his performance.”

Terry McDermott is a songwriter, television personality, and lead singer for the band Lotus Crush.

After playing in bands during his time as a pupil at Ellon Academy, he formed Driveblind, originally on Fat Hippy Records out of Aberdeen.

The band was eventually signed to Geffen records, moved to Los Angeles, and gained critical acclaim for their debut album in 2005.

In 2013, Terry shot to widespread popularity as a contestant on Team Blake of Season three on NBC’s The Voice USA. Terry finished second overall that season, making the iTunes Rock Chart Top 10 a number of times while on the show, and singing before a television audience of nearly 15 million people on the season finale.

His time on The Voice USA earned him a loyal and active fan base, affectionately dubbed “McHobbits.”

Terry is a graduate of Ellon Academy, and holds a degree from Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen.

The opening act is Fat Hippy Records recording artist Craig John Davidson, a singer and songwriter from Aberdeen.

He and McDermott have known each other for years and grew up only a few miles apart.

Mr Johnston said that there would be only 200 tickets available for the concert and he expected that these would go quickly. Tickets are on sale during office hours from Balmoor Stadium priced at £10 (if purchased in advance) or £12 on the day.

“At his concert in Pitmedden, tickets sold out in just a couple of hours - so get them now,” added Mr Johnston
