Went to both the gig at the sage and at the Fruitmarket. Both really, really brilliant but the audience were loads better in Glasgow. About the 5th time we have seen Brian and will never tire of going as often as we can.
Keep up the good work Brian we think you are fantastic and glad you liked the poster at the sage !!!!!!!
Attended with my wife who is now a fully committed Brian groupie. 10/10 for all those on stage, another wonderful night of audience participation and brilliant entertainment. What chance of Brian touring with Eddi Reader, a fusion of the best of Scottish and Irish talent [a marriage made in heaven],
Went to my first BK concert having initially heard about him from a friend who gave me one of his CDs, what a superb concert he gave with such a variety of songs, a great entertainer, I'll definitely be going back when he appears in Scotland again, thanks Brian.
Attended last night with my friends Steph, her boyfriend Richard, and Suzanne (who is our newest convert to the BK experience).
Once again Brian turned in a fantastic show in what must be one of Scotland's most unusual venues. The Old Fruitmarket - beautifully restored and decorated with coloured lights - is a more intimate venue than the Royal Concert Hall where we last saw Brian and it really suited his style as he was really up close to the audience.
Brian says he likes coming to Glasgow and it shows - certainly Glasgow surely loves him if the audience response was anything to go by! Supported ably by Don Mescall, who gave an entertaining pre-BK set, Brian and the band then gave us a great hour and 45 minutes or so, mixing 'well kent' favourites with a few tracks from his new album. (And the new album is fantastic especially the acoustic disc which comes as close to the live experience as anything that Brian has released before).
Always one for encouraging audience participation, Brian led the Glasgow 'choir' through quite a few numbers and dealt with the 'hecklers' with great humour!
To sum up - great concert Brian - don't stay away too long!
This time we only had to travel half a 'Homebird' to get to the venue (See Manchester reviews for explanation!) but we had to arrive early to start queuing as the seating was unreserved. This is not a good idea for a BK concert as the anticipation of the doors opening was building to a frenzy before a little subterfuge ensued - thanks, Jane!!
Brian said he felt at home in Glasgow and we appreciated that very much! Having seen him at a few venues scattered across England and Ireland, the Glasgow audiences really are the liveliest.
A first class performance from those on stage and in the audience - I think we raised the roof of the Fruitmarket just a tad with the singing and applause.
My friend Catriona and I went to our first Brian gig last night at the Old Fruit Market. It was a fantastic show. Great entertainment. Brian we will definitely be back. Sandra *
