A well travelled fan then. So few people I've met have heard of them outside Scotland but they do have a big following in England, at least I assume that to be the case since all the concerts were sold out. Colston Hall was the venue on both occasions we saw them in Bristol. The strangest was a sports hall in Newport. They did a freebie in a sports hall in West Lothian some years back (can't recall which town but might have been Livingston); it was a 'dress rehearsal' for an upcoming tour. My wife and I managed to meet them at Barrowlands back in the 1980s where our English accent prompted a roadie to invite us backstage! Interesting times.
Will look forward to the DVD and will check out Youtube.
