Ahoy Ahoy – The Skids Are Coming
Due to phenomenal demand, influential 70’s art-punks The Skids will be playing a one off headline show at the Glen Pavilion in their hometown of Dunfermline on Thursday 5th July 2007.
Celebrating their 30th anniversary, this gig comes just days before The Skids take to the Main Stage at T in the Park.
Before splitting in 1982 The Skids released 4 albums and had 10 chart singles including, Into The Valley, Working For The Yankee Dollar and The Saints Are Coming which was recently rerecorded by U2 and Green Day.
Founding member Stuart Adamson went on to form the hugely successful Big Country before his untimely death in 2001 and Richard Jobson had a successful career as a writer and presenter before moving into film where he’s enjoyed success with films such as 16 Years Of Alcohol which he wrote and directed.
Jobson will be joined on stage by original bass player Bill Simpson, drummer Mike Baillie and Big Country’s Bruce Watson will fill Adamson’s role on guitar.
Tickets will go on sale on Monday 23rd April at 9am and will be available by logging onto www.gigsinscotland.com or by calling Ticketmaster on 0870 169 0100. Tickets will be limited to 4 per person.
