Music fans have told concert bosses to carry on bringing big-name acts to Montrose for years to come.
It comes after ska legends Madness returned to Angus on Saturday night to bring the curtain down on Live at the Links.
Suggs and his merry men performed pop classics including One Step Beyond, House Of Fun, Driving In My Car, It Must Be Love, Our House and Baggy Trousers.
It was part of a big weekend on Tayside for nostalgia fans, with the DunDee 80s show at Slessor Gardens also featuring the likes of ABC, Hue and Cry, Midge Ure, Go West and China Crisis on Saturday.
The Montrose concert was the final show of this summer’s Live at the Links from organisers LCC Live, who also secured headline sets from pop superstar Jess Glynne and the Kaiser Chiefs.

LCC Live has brought the likes of Status Quo, Jools Holland, Bryan Adams and the Beach Boys to perform open-air gigs at the East links since 2013 as part of its link up with Montrose Music Festival.
Music fans feared the worst when MoFest pulled the plug on this year’s event due to a lack of volunteers but just days later LCC Live announced Live at the Links would take place in August with three of the UK’s most popular artists performing.
Music fans have given their backing for the gigs to continue; whatever form they take.
Barry O’Neill from Montrose, who attended Saturday’s gig by Madness, said: “It’s great for the town and I would love to see it come back year after year.
“These shows have put Montrose on the music map and we’re hungry for more of the same.”
Madness fan Steve Smith from Dundee said: “The sight of the East Links full of Madness fans in pork pie hats and braces was unforgettable.
“To have gigs like this on our doorstep makes it even better and they have put Montrose firmly on the music map.
“I’m hoping they’ll return again next year with even bigger and better names.”
Montrose SNP councillor Bill Duff said: “It’s good to see the East Links used for concerts and lots of music lovers heading for Montrose.
“I’m sure that local hotels and bed and breakfast providers will be busy.
“As a local member I’m very pleased to see council assets being used to support these events.”
