The Garage, Glasgow
3rd June 2015
Our second Black Grape review of the year – equally as jubilant as the first – with full photo gallery.
Approaching The Garage in Glasgow you are firstly struck by a truck jutting out above the doorway … a real truck! There’s a queue of excited people outside.
Alias Kid started the evening off, their Manchester accents not phasing the Glaswegians one bit.
The five piece band played confidently with a bit of cheekiness – they held their own for the set whilst the audience were jigging and “wooing” (because it’s hard to clap loudly with a pint in your hand).
Shaun and Kermit walked on to the stage with big grins to greet the shouting, jumping, chanting crowd.
From the get go Kermit bounced around the stage with all the enthusiasm that he had 20 odd years ago. Shaun chuckling and singing was a joy.
If there was ever a gig that went completely to plan I’ve yet to see it and so the little hiccups were easy to forgive. Especially as THE BAND WERE BRILLIANT. Tight playing and just massive fun.
I overheard two fans saying they’d waited forever for this gig and it was better than they could’ve imagined.
You didn’t feel like you were watching a band – you felt like you were part of the performance.
If you have the luck and chance of seeing them do, you will NOT be disappointed.
T’was JOYFUL and TRIUMPHANT
