Top gig as usual. Terry said a few times that it was the best one
of the recent tour and he certainly looked like he was enjoying himself.
The whole band were on top form and sound even tighter than a couple of years back(brass section included). The strings were a nice touch and created a good atmosphere on the songs they were used on,I won't spoil it by rattling of the set list but there were a couple of jems that have not been played before which for me really freshened things up probably the best set list out of the 5 gigs I have been to. Concrete Jungle and TMTY were highlights as well as a couple of the 'new songs'.

If you don't have a ticket for a gig,get one.

Glasgow was brilliant last night. I was near the stage for a while, but I asked to be taken out of the crowd, and I enjoyed the rest of the gig at the side of the stage. I enjoyed the entire concert. I noticed during International Jet Set, Terry sang 'phoned his girlfriend to ask her how's her weekend, and he said "hi Jerry here" and she said "Jerry, who?"', and then touched his nose like some dig or something towards Jerry. Terry sang with Roddy on Concrete Jungle Smile. I sadly had to leave two songs before the end, as I needed to catch the bus to Edinburgh, but I saw the majority of it, and it was brilliant Very Happy.

Best gig I have seen them since they came back.

Some nice changes to the setlist and even Horace and Brad seem to be getting in on the showmanship stuff now. Shame that Neville sems to have knees as bad as mine and isnt jumping around so much.

It's difficult to quantify it but they have raised the stakes this tour it seems

Horace and Brad appear to be getting more involved in the live Gigs, I noticed this first in Amsterdam, I wonder was that a rehearsal for the UK Laughing

Great gig, band on top form and crowd bouncing; can't ask for more...

On the down side, still hate the SECC as a venue - glorified cow shed IMO.
