Re: Edinburgh Usher Hall 13 Feb

...the thing that was clear after 42 years was that they couldn't agree on anything ... Woo Hoo Runrig's last studio album Elaine I thought that left the door nicely unlocked on another studio album - I would have thought that a studio album would be less exhausting than touring (when they finally ...

Re: Do you like 'The Story'?

So I'll be giving it a few more spins during the next couple of days to see what happens. DT I think it got me on the fourth or fifth play - although I find the words of Laurel Clark a bit mawkish (I'm ready to be shot down for daring to say that!). I was disappointed that the band didn't play &quo...

Re: Do you like 'The Story'?

I worked very hard to save listening to The Story until this weekend when I had a long journey planned and I'm not sorry that I waited - it made 4 hours of driving just fly by! I love the album - yes, l would have liked a return to something more tribal but I really like the mix of reflections acros...

Re: Do you like 'The Story'?

Really pleased that some people have this already. :music: I pre-ordered from Runrig shop on the promise that it would be despatched ahead of the release date. An email this afternoon tells me that it has now been despatched so it will probably be the middle of next week before I can share the joy -...

Re: 1993 Runrig Whiskey

Have you considered advertising it on eBay? The value of the whisky is difficult to determine without knowing which distillery it came from, single malt or (less likely) blend and a lot more. The value of the bottle is what a bottle collector might pay - and the combined value is anyone's guess! The...

Re: 3 more songs from the The story

Thank you so much for the link - a fantastic Christmas present and just what I needed after 2 days of exams and job interview from hell!

Counting the days now to Jan 29th.

And just seen that it's being released on vinyl as well as cd.

Re: Has anyone said *why* this is the final album?

At first I wondered if the Chinese whispers had been at work and reported the "last studio album" instead of the "latest studio album" but then I saw the words as a quote from Rory - and "last" hasn't been refuted. Perhaps it's the economics of producing an album - I do...

Re: The Story tracklist up on Team Rock

So "The World" (played on the tour in 2012) isn't ever getting a studio release, unless it's under a new title. And "And We'll Sing" isn't included either. Well I, for one, am glad that they haven't included "And we'll sing" - it's ok for the end of a gig to send peopl...

Re: Edinburgh Castle Tickets (standing)

thanks Chris (I went to ticketline as that is the link on the email) - still only one section available (block 10 for this site). Maybe I'm being unreasonable but for this amount of money I want a choice of where I sit.

Re: Edinburgh Castle Tickets (standing)

I've just gone on to ticketline (on iPad) to get seated ticket and only block 5 seems to be offered and no way to select seats within the block. I'm intrigued as to why the seated ticket delivery charges start at £2 but standing tickets delivery charges start at £6. £45 plus ticket tout charges is c...

Love the song. Love 6mins 15 seconds of the video - just going to have nightmares of that weird David Cameron look-alike in the car mirror.

Re: The Story - Final Runrig Album?

What has "their age" got to do with this? Rory is mid-60s - younger than a lot of other rock stars and certainly looking better than most!
New album is due out in a couple of months - we finally have a date to end the speculation - so please don't start writing the eulogies just yet!

Re: Runrig Tattoos

I have to say that tattoos give me the creeps - not at all improved by all the TV programmes that seem to be on these days (in Englamd at least). But I guess a Runrig tattoo might persuade me (though a Welsh dragon hasn't done so in a lot more years than I will own up to) The caution against having ...
