Oh folks, hello folks. I'd like to go to these. Who wants to come with me?
- Florence + the Machine, Glasgow SECC, Monday 12th March. £29.50 a head. There's not really a machine. It's more of a concept. Nonetheless I like Florence a great deal and I suspect she's bloody awesome live.
- All-new Jeff Wayne's musical version of The War Of The Worlds, Glasgow SECC, Tuesday 11th December. It's a brand new one starring Liam frickin' Neeson in Richard Burton's role. There's a 36-piece string orchestra and a 35-foot fighting machine that attacks the audience. (This one isn't just a concept.) And did I mention Liam Neeson? I have a huge man-crush on Neeson's voice. Tickets £42.50 or £62.50; not sure what you get for the extra twenty quid.
For either one it should theoretically be possible to get the late train back to Edinburgh.
