I take it you meant £250-£350?

That does remind of me how much gig tickets have inflated though. I remember going to see David Bowie at the SECC in the 90s, decided at the last minute. Morrissey had been billed as special guest but he'd pulled out in the huff over something so they were offering a full refund. I turned up at the box office where there was a massive queue, but soon realised it was folk wanting their money back. There was an empty kiosk selling tickets next along, the woman seemed astonished "you actually want to buy a ticket?!!"

The reviewer in the Record the next day had also interviewed some of the people queuing for refunds, and the quote that's always stuck with me was "Bowie's ok but he's not worth 25 quid".

 

Bowie played The Barras 25 years ago today and it was 15 quid a ticket!!

Twas quite emotional.

they put on a guid show.

I’m off to see them tonight, looking forward to it. Only seen then once before in Dublin and it was a cracking gig.

Can't believe people like Coldplay 😂

 

So far this year seen 

Simon and Oscar of OCS play in Paisley was brilliant.

Gave counting crows a miss due to my knee.

Band called Balado from Neilston/Barrhead playing King Tuts on the 10th December I think. Not bad if anyone wants to see a small band that are trying to make it for a tenner.

They are on Spotify if anyone wants a listen

They are superb.

Did you see them last night by any chance? My daughters were there, I was watching the dug for them. They told me to come but  I felt I would need to pretend to be a family member of the band to maintain any degree of respect at my age.  
My friends son is in a band, Retro Video Club, my friend retired a few years ago and travels everywhere with them, he loves it. Gets all over Europe.

My daughter was at the Barrowland last night and absolutely loved it, she showed me a few clips of the gig and they looked very good.

I, on the other hand am going to see the Vintage Explosion at the ferry next weekend 😂

😂 I had to google Vintage Explosion. They look good fun , ‘Vintage’ meaning  ‘cool’ for over 40’s  😁 

Glad your daughter enjoyed herself. My daughter did too , she was saying there was actually quite a mixed crowd which is probably to be expected when a band is trying to breakthrough and friends and family are supporting them. To sell out the barras without mainstream advertising is a big achievement .

Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott last night and although Jacqui couldn't make it due to illness it was a great night loads of stuff from the housemartins, beautiful south to the present day. Billy Bragg was supporting and he was brilliant as usual.
