||Kylie - I Believe In You
Haha... so the Rooster gig was actually rather good. They can actually play their instruments, shock horror.
The support band were some bizarre group called The Famous Last Words, who weren't memorable in the slightest. The only thing I can recall is that their singer bore a quite remarkable resemblance to the Green Goblin in Spider-Man. I couldn't decipher any of what he was singing, not that the music was that grand anyways.
Rooster were pretty decent. They played most of the tracks on their album, as well as three new songs and a cover of 'All Right Now' by Free, an influence apparently. Nick Atkinson was on good form, he was a charismatic frontman. He's also very pretty, always a bonus. His attempts at dancing though...HAHA, just wrong. Someone threw a yellow vest onto the stage and he mopped up his sweat with it and threw it back. After the gig I saw the girl who caught it putting it on her face, which was rather heinous.
The gig was at the Carling Academy in Glasgow, which I'd never been to before. It was considerably less grand than I imagined it would be, and the stage was tiny. On the way in I spotted a troupe of underage pseudo Playboy bunnies and I saw them in their balcony, but they were actually sitting under the rail on it, which was deranged, they might've fallen down and done themselves an injury. The crowd was more mixed than I expected, as well as the usual teen girls there were quite a few boys and even some parents, which made me laugh. When we got there the queue was quite small and eventually it stretched back all the way down the street. When we got into the venue we ended up about four rows from the front, so the view was grand.
I was given a flyer with the forthcoming gigs and Audioslave are playing the Academy on June the 6th... I'd love to go, but I don't think there are any standing tickets left. I'd have to convince the brother to go with me. Eh, we'll see. That would be great though, two gigs in a week, VR and Audioslave.
I see they're showing the Kylie Showgirl concert on Saturday. I wonder if that's the one I attended, there were cameras there. What a brilliant concert it was, the woman is absolute star. I was only about ten feet away from her and she has to be one of the most perfect looking people I've ever seen. My favourite part was probably when she was lowered onto the stage on a glittery moon and sang 'Somewhere Over The Rainbow', perfectly I hasten to add. I wish I'd taken a camera, I could've got incredible pictures. Oh well.
