My custom is to treat friends and family to their first Travis show. Tonight was no different with my 4 guests in tow. My party was not let down.
As usual the boys performed brilliantly. The Theatre is old, gothic in character and the sold out show with an intimate 1,200 or so grooving fans were treated to 12 Memories material and plenty of the classics...As you are, Sing, WDIAROM, Driftwood and others.
Rooney warmed up and were much better than I expected but the crowd came to see the Lads from Glasgow and were not disappointed when they hit the stage, lights down and Neil's drum beat from "Happy to Hang Around" bringing the boys onto the stage, lights up when Franny hits the Mic..."I was following you..." Wearing the white suit and dark beret from the Re-offender video. Killer!! What can I say, I'm getting goose bumps reliving it right now.
Fran spoke his mind on a few occassions, addressing a bit of the current state of affairs, always encouraging togetherness and everybody trying to stay cool and get along.
The music was great, the vocals were pure as always and the crowd danced and swayed to the tunes well into the night.
I never want a Travis show to end until the next begins...
Thanks, Love you guys

I loved this concert!! It was actually my first concert ever and I enjoyed it to the fullest!! I had the best of times!!! I only wished I had brought my camera in with me, but I didn't....grrrr!!

But, I still had the best time and I thank you guys for making music and putting on a great show!!

I have to admit it...Rooney was actually one of the best opening bands I have seen...pretty darn good.

I can't believe no one mentioned the best part of the show...Fran and Dougie playing Hit Me Baby One More Time....My wife became an official Travis nut case after I took her to this show.
