Sound: This show was such a good preformance, A+++ absolutly flawless! Scott was sounding great as usual. Only one bad point: SECC's acoustics aren't the best, so sometimes it was pretty hard to hear Scott (especially when he used his megaphone) and even some of the solos were tough to hear. // 8
Perfomance: The audience were totally loving this show, singing every song very loud, and rawkin out to solos like there is no tomorrow! The crowd were non-stop crazy till about the 5th song "Fall To Pieces" when we all chilled ut for a little bit to get our breath back! Songs played (not in order sorry): Sucker Train Blues, Do It For The Kids, Big Machine, Dirty Little Thing, Fall To Pieces, Headspace, Illegal I Song, Set Me Free, Spectacle, Superhuman, You Got No Right, Slither, Used To Love Her, It's So Easy, Mr Brownstone, at least one STP cover I don't know.
Some special moments: not that special but it was nice to hear Scott talk a little about what some songs are about and what they mean to HIM. Also a nice little audience participation bit where he indicated when he wanted us to quiet down then scream like mad hehe. Extended break in Illegal I Song where scott played with his little sampler at the side of the stage, lovely acoustic solo before used to love her, and also I belive this is one of the first shows they have ever played you got no right on! Matt did a kick ass solo before Mr Brownstone, and played the drum intro to You Could Be Mine! Another great thing was the addition of two huge screens at the side of the stage, which showed a mixture of the band playing and also some random video clips of a boxing fight/space shuttle sounds Weird but it went well! Also a stunnign light show and a huge banner across the stage saying "rock n' f--ing roll" which dropped to reveal a huge VR sign and the words Velvet Revolver in lights, very nice. // 10
Overall Impression: Scotland, Glasgow, SECC, 14/01/05. The Datsuns opened for VR and put on a good show, the crowd went pretty crazy, considering they were an opening band. Things I loved about the show: the bands great performance, the lights and screens. Things I did not like: the quality of sound. Tickets cost 23, which was not bad considering the quality of the performance and songs, but sound should have been much better. The most unforgettable moments included Matt playing the into to You Could Be Mine then stopping (boo) but then playing all of Mr Brownstone. // 10
