Aberdeenshire residents were delighted to land the Scottish rockers for the Stonehaven concert but plans for the group to ring in the bells in the town square this year were left in jeopardy when police raised an objection.
The Kincardine and Mearns area committee are expected to meet today to decide on whether the gig will go ahead. If a public entertainment licence is refused by Aberdeenshire Council, the concert will have to be scrapped.
Kerr said: "It would a colossal disappointment to us and so many of our fans, some of who are travelling from the other side of the world in the hope of spending a spectacular Hogmanay in Stonehaven and indeed Scotland.
"With that in mind we ask the authorities to kindly take a positive view within their decision as well as making ourselves at their complete disposal in terms of any further discussions they might feel is necessary."
David Lawman, vice-chairman of Stonehaven Festival and Events, said: "We are overwhelmed by the level of support. We are hoping councillors will take on board the strength of feeling in the town and common sense will prevail."
