Skids in comeback gig
News of The World – A-Listed by Tim Barr
New wave heroes The Skids are heading back Into The Valley … with a spectacular hometown show.
The legendary outfit have been persuaded to reform for a special gig at Dunfermline’s Alhambra on Saturday, March 6.
And front man Richard Jobson, who led the band through a spectacular performance at T In The Park in 2007, warned; “We’re going to do this in style, it won’t be a shadow of our former glory – it’ll be the real deal.”
Tickets are expected to sell-out in record time when they go on sale at 9am Monday, 11th January.
The band’s last hometown gigs, at Dunfermline’s Glen Pavilion prior to T, sparked frenzy among the fans. And in the historic surroundings of the Alhambra – rapidly winning itself a reputation as one of Scotland’s best venues – the band could be on even BETTER form.
An insider at promoters DF Concerts added: “It’s really exciting news.
We’re massive fans. Anyone who heard them play those classic songs like Animation, Masquerade and Working for the Yankee Dollar at the Glen Pavilion will know just how sensational they are as a live act.”
The surprise reunion will be the grand finale of a week of events to celebrate Jobson’s accomplishments outside music. Organisers of The Fifer Festival want to mark the singer’s achievements as a writer and film maker alongside his musical successes.
Richard told A-Listed: “It’s a great honour for me obviously.” The gig will be a wonderful way to finish the week.
“We’re planning to play the classic Skids songs that people love best as well as a few forgotten gems.
It’s a brilliant way to start the year.”
