    That was one of te best shows I've ever been to! 5th time seeing them live. Twice at T, supporting U2 at Slane Castle and last time at Bellahouston Park. This was the first indoor gig so I've been looking forward to for months. When we took to our seats (section K) I noticed there was a bit boxed off in the section next to me. I was 90% certain that they would play there and they did. What a buzz!!! If I wasn't so financially tight with Xmas I would be there again on Tuesday night but I'll just have to wait for Hampden now instead. Pics & Vids ot follow but now I'm away to get some rest for Kings of Leon tomorrow. Its the Carlsberg weekend for me. They even paid a wee tribute to Travis during Green Eyes by singing 'Why Does It Always Rain On Me' in one of the lines! Nice! Have to say the oddest (and also the funniest) part of the night was the couple sat to my right who left after 6 songs. They were all tarted up. You could tell they hadn't been to a rock concert before lets put it that way. She had the fur coat and all the bling on her fingers and probably elsewhere too (I never asked lol) and was so pissed off cos folk were standing in front of her. They buggered off never to be seen again lol! Was cool cos we could move about a bit more. Who leaves a gig after 25 mins anyway?? Pair of fuds! [thanks kevvvy]


    That was just the best I've seen them! Such a great atmosphere. Everyone was dancing and singing, really up for it. I'm just ecstatic they played Green Eyes...I won't even begin to tell you. Have sooo many videos but have pretty much broken my friend's puter trying to upload them so I'll hold off for when I get home! Chris was changing lyrics all over the joint. It's a bit of a blur....lol He said something about being away from Tunnocks Caramel Wafers compared to this song - the hardest part lol. there was a couple next to us sitting down for most of it but everyone else was up dancing and singing. Dancing in the aisles and everything....twas great!! [thanks fudge]


    The guys totally rocked. The crowd was completely up for it. The atmosphere was unbelieveable. The highlights for me were Yellow.... the whole place playing punch the massive yellow balloons back at Chris. The B stage set perform right in front of us. Lovers in Japan with thousands of luminous butterflies. The Scientist when Chris changed the words ...'Come up to Glasgow, dying to see you. Don't know how fucking awesome you are' ...superb. Not mentioned was that he sang the first verse and chorus of Take That's Back for Good. But perhaps the best thing was the crowd constantly singing the chorus from Vida La Viva even on the way to the train station....how cool is that! [thanks sg2006]


    More on this concert including reviews, videos and pictures here onwards.
