hello, well Friday night I went upto Wet Wet Wet at Glasgow Green. I left at 3.45 fae Auchinleck and got to Buchanan Bus Station 5.15. I got a taxi out to Glasgow Green which was £5.20 I knew at this point the last train was 11.15 from Glasgow Central and it could be close. I got down to the gig and ran into some mates who went "why are you here", (I hadn't told them) and I go silly question, they asked how I got up, bus and I asked "how are you going back", they drove so got a lift home (great, no trains which I would have missed or night bus and £30 taxi to get home). Raintown started first at 5.45pm roughly (that was me just there). They won a competition on Real Radio (which I don't get easily unless I use computer). They were very good and a great start to the night. The take aways were about £5 which wasnt that bad. I didn't head to beer tent (lots did which meant VERY LONG WAITS). Red Sky July were a good county band and wernt bad but it kept the pace going which was very good. James Walsh finished the warm up acts and he was very good (from Starsailor). We got Wet Wet Wet at 8.45, they had fireworks and whole stage of graphics, big televisions and Marti and the boys were amazing. If you want a large review on the gig, go someone else. What I do think I think there will be a DVD of the gig (or there should be). The gig finished just after 11pm. Here are my photos from the gig:- I also did a video of American Pie The other thing I am going to say Kelly Ann Woodland was reporting from the gig at 6.15pm on STV News and I took a photo of her. I thought Mrs Woodland looked about 5ft 3in and me being 6ft 3in would look tall and I wimped out of asking to get a photo with her. I didn't not know she would be there reporting. I tweeted the picture to currentbunsuk which martin retweeted (cheers) and this morning I have done some caps from Kelly Ann piece on STV News. So it was a great night. I got to sleep after 2am after a great night.
