SAILOR belong to Glasgow- A concert review by Malcolm Knowles:
Glasgow Concert Hall Main
Auditorium is a very large venue and it was clear as we took our
seats that the hall would be far from full. Difficult to get a
full house when there has been a football cup final in town and
Kylie is playing down the road on the same day!! However,
this was Scotland and Scottish audiences, big or small, are
famous for giving bands a warm welcome. And thats exactly
what SAILOR got an enthusiastic response to every song.
"Champagne" had everyone clapping from the start and Grant had no problem getting the crowd waving their arms and swaying to "The Old Nickelodeon Sound". "Karma Chameleon" is not always the easiest crowd participation song, but the good people of Glasgow even made a decent job of that.
Robs "Hornpipe" provided a very smooth link to the "Full Monty" which, in turn, created genuine hilarity throughout the hall. In short, the boys played their short set with visible passion and energy and were rewarded with the best response anyone could expect from the number of people there.
During the interval, there were plenty of people keen to grab a few words with the band and wanting to get things signed. Not sure how many bought the merchandise with three bands on the bill it is always going to be difficult for the first band on to sell many CDs. However, it was clear that here in Glasgow SAILOR had definitely made some new friends. One die hard Sweet fan told me that he had been "worried" about seeing SAILOR but having seen their set "thought they were great". No arguments from me this was a fast paced, lively set played to a receptive crowd. I left with high hopes that my trip to Edinburgh the following night would be similarly rewarded.
