My friend is coming over from Montreal and we are going to be - wait for it - following the Bay City Rollers around for a week!!!!!! When we were kids, and I mean kids, not teenagers, she had THE biggest crush on them. Not one inch of her wall wasn't covered in pictures. I almost got hit once when I pointed out a duplicate!!! Anyway, they were in Montreal a few weeks ago and her husband took her to see them. In short, he's unleashed a monster!!! My friend has since been online, found out their tour venues/dates and has discovered they are back in Scotland the first week in October. She's arriving September 30th!!!!
This will be.....interesting. Guess I'd better start finding other uses for plaid other than slip-covering eastern European countries, eh??!!!!!!!
Enjoy your road-trip-concert-following! I wasn't a fan like some others of my age, but I remember when they were the hottest thing going, and I had a friend who was absolutely nuts about the group. Will we get pictures and a full report? I hope so!

To the side of course but WOW, I have seen him 3 times and usually had to depend on the screen to see his face, not this time, he was right there! We were also sitting right by the backstage area where he entered and exit the stage. We were able to see all the action taking place backstage. We had the time of our lives!
Glad you had a great concert experience!
This doesn't even compare, but ... the first time (of twice) that we went to see Straight No Chaser live, it was in a fairly small auditorium, and we were about five rows from the front---terrific seats, especially when they did their encore ("O Holy Night") without mics! So when they came back to town the next year, we got tickets. But that time they were playing in a huge auditorium, we were sitting near the back of the floor level, and the amplification was too loud. Nothing will beat that first experience. That was a great evening. It was in December, so they did a set of their Christmas music, including "The 12 Days of Christmas"---fun to see that done live. (They must be sick of doing that by now.)
