  1. Underwhelming is an understatement..
  2. Thousands of people under the influence of alcohol will always see some issues. I don't imagine the crime figures would be any worse(probably better) with the equivalent amount of people out on the town for the night. I've never felt unsafe.
  3. I watched about 4 songs and that was enough for me. I put them in the same category as the hotpots. They both get the crowd going, but they just aren't for me.
  4. Seen them tonight at Party at the Palace in Linlithgow. It's a small festival and I expected them to do their big hits given the small audience and lack of James fans. They didn't. The amusing part was where Tim Booth said "we never have a set list. We just play the songs the crowd want". Crowd vocally "oh sit down.........." Tim "we don't do requests either". I had a chuckle.
  5. A bit late now, but buy one of the phone charging banks from Amazon. I've bought a few products from Anker and have always been happy.
  6. They were handing out clear water pouches last year and never checked them. I'm sure most people filled them with vodka before going in. The blue bottles look like they'll open up more options of drinks that can be smuggled. KC must have the most lenient searches going into the arena ever. Some people got 5l kegs in whilst plenty of people also got glass into the arena.
  7. I see they've just added Gerry Cinnamon. He is very much a "here we ******* go" attraction.
  8. It's worrying for the music festival scene in Scotland. Too many aren't doing well at all and selling off Belladrum isn't a good sign.
  9. It's way too much. Watching on the TV there is plenty of space for the Killers. Why do it Friday and Sunday night this week and not Friday and Saturday? Not only is it 5 nights, but they are pulling Bruno Mars' gig on Tue or Wed as being part of a ticket deal. It's also on the Green.
  10. Loved the band and Scott was a nice guy. It was always clear he was a troubled soul. Still never thought this would happen. RIP Scott.
  11. They played Moving On later in the set. I've no idea what the song was they skipped. They barely even started, but it was very slow.
  12. It was more the way he stopped the song and then made it sound like an insult toward the crowd. It didn't come across well at all. It's a big ask to expect complete silence.
  13. I don't remember the penis bit, but I think it was 2014 maybe 2015. They had pulled a black curtain right across the top tier. The one thing that stood out was when they started off playing off a low key song and Tim suddenly stopped due to a little background noise. He said something along the lines of "Glasgow on a Saturday night isn't place to be doing this........." It came across as rude and the crowd did boo a bit. It was a bit awkward.
  14. It's a very small and amateurish festival. It's not a big deal at all. Most of the custom is oldies that won't leave their deckchairs. The Lightning Seeds nearly pulled last year after learning The Sun was involved. It turns out The Sun only sponsor the breakout stage and The Lightning Seeds reconsidered their last minute pull out. That stage was the size of a car and had bad pub bands playing any time I went up. It's not a big deal. Likewise it's only supported by the local Forth radio and not across the Bauer radio network. Is Glen's Platinum vodka a big hitter? They never had much presence other than a ball pit and the vodka being served behind the bar. The bars were empty all day. Never once did we have to stop as they had more people serving than drinking. The festival is far too small to be worthwhile throwing big money behind. The capacity is 7000 and it was far from a sell out on Sunday last year. They do give some money to local charities, but it's very much a profit making event. The last time I went to see James Live was at The Hydro supported by Starsailor. The complete top tier and half the second tier was all closed off. Great band, but they aren't the attraction they once were. They also headlined that farcical festival in Liverpool last year.
  15. James are headlining Party at the Palace in Linlithgow this year. It's only a small 7000 capacity festival.
