The audience absolutly loved the show, and loved the band, singing along to every song word by word even though the album is not long out. They played a good selection from their album and also a few songs from their previous bands.

Sound: Scott was on top form all night, sounding just like on the studio album. The venue didn't have the worlds best acoustics, but it was pretty good anyway, the individual instruments were easlily heard and sounded great. // 8
Perfomance: The audience absolutly loved the show, and loved the band, singing along to every song word by word even though the album is not long out. They played a good selection from their album and also a few songs from their previous bands. Songs played: Sucker Train Blues, Do It For The Kids, Big Machine, Illegal I Song, Spectical, Fall To Pieces, Headspace, Set Me Free, Slither, I Used To Love Her (GNR cover), It's So Easy (GNR cover), 2 STP covers and Nirvana's Negative Creep. The breakdown in Illegal I Song was extended for quite a few minutes while Scott played around with a sampler at the side of the stage. Other special moments included a solo battle between Slash and Dave, Slash's talk box solo, a bluesy solo from Slash leading into I Used To Love Her, the audience chanting "Duff" after he stood tall on the monitors and the free posters (the ones in the lobby that everyone nicked). // 10
Overall Impression: Scotland, Glasgow, Carling Academy 31/08/04 sold out. This was Velvet Revolver's first gig in the UK. I loved the band's presence and the quality of their live performance. I also loved the crowd's enthusiasm. Tickets cost a mere 17, i would of paid double to see this amazing show. The most unforgettable moments: solo battle between Slash and Dave: crowd chanting "Duff": free posters in the lobby. I am going to their next show whether I have a ticket or not! I'm going! // 10
