How Did That Happen?
My Monday theme is likely to be taken over occasionally by personal blog posts rather than posts to do with writing. That is the case today because I want to take the opportunity to describe an event attended last weekend.
Saturday 26th May 2018, I went to a very special concert in
became host to the Commonwealth Games in 2014, it got a new lease of life. A large injection of cash (around
£2 million) restored the area to a beautiful venue for outside concerts. An
open-air amphitheatre isn’t weatherproof, but I’m glad to say that the weather
behaved beautifully last Saturday. Glasgow
It was an extra special time for me since I was meeting up with old school friends of mine – two of whom I first met when I was only seven years old and went to the same Broadholm Primary School, and another two whom I met at 12 years old at Waverley Secondary School.
Along with a few other girls, we screamed ourselves hoarse at a live Beatles concert in the Odeon Theatre,
, on December 3rd
1965. That was the one and only time I ever saw the Beatles but when my friend,
who still lives in Glasgow ,
realised that a Beatles ‘lookalike’ band were playing at the Kelvingrove
Bandstand we jumped at the chance to see them. Glasgow
They are the Bootleg Beatles and they were fantastic or in the parlance of the 1960s – they were FAB!
Their music sounded very much like the original Beatles. The one playing Paul looked a bit like paul but definitely sounded like Paul. George and John were dead-ringers for the early Beatles. Ringo was too far off to see properly though he definitely had a look of him. When they changed wigs and clothes for the Sgt, Peppers era, John was so amazingly alike.
All told, the venue was very well-organised and the concert brilliant! I’d recommend The Bootleg Beatles anytime. The audience, comprising all ages, had a wonderful time.
We loved it Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
