Simple Minds/Edinburgh Castle...
Photo: Julia NicolleRain kept falling and falling...it was incessant....I was lucky and only got soaked, but others got drenched.What a night of great music it was however and the Silencers were in excellent form with Martin and Joe playing like they did twenty years ago and young James was a revelation on guitar.Jimme was always a great frontman and didn't let us down despite the downpour.
It looked like the gig might have got 'pulled' after the Silencers as the rain got heavier and heavier, but, hey it's Scotland in the summer...IT RAINS quite a lot and Simple Minds were not going to let a monsoon like downpour put them off and stormed into their opening number 'Waterfront' with total passion and zest. The next two hours was a simple love affair between the band and the best fans in the world...what a show...The Minds are back on form.
Met up with Simon, Shaun and George....all fans who had travelled some distance to see the band....maybe see you all again soon..
