As a support band for possibly the world's biggest band (in tribute form anyway!) there could not have been a better choice, Rosewood were simply fantastic.
Only a matter of time till Rosewood break into the 'mainstream' support world and grace bigger and better stages...and it will be totally deserved, they are simply awesome!
"Fantastic doesn't quite do it justice, one of the best Thunder gigs I've ever been to.
My first ever "last night of the tour" show..... totally blown away, the guys seemed to be enjoying themselves more than previous shows I've been at. "
"Simply Amazing. I Didn't take pics, I didn't remember the setlist, just had a fantastic night!!!
Come back soon Thunder, I hope the Banjo playing locals didn't scare you.
PS - Rosewood were good too!"
"Well i went to my 3rd Thunder concert last night in Glasgow. A fairly recent convert thanks to my husband's obsession. Thoroughly enjoyed myself, the 'sea of hands' was just amazing to watch! Read a bit about what you lot think of Rosewood and i have to say they got better the longer they were on and i think it was the 2nd to last song they did that was great. However, i agree with someones comment about the front man not working the crowd very well and i felt soooo sorry for the guitarist when his string broke, at least i think thats what happened but we were a bit far back to see. Anyways, hubby is going to be dead impressed that i have signed up to the message board - will tell him when he gets home from Inverness tonight! Thank you thank you thank you for finally agreeing to come up here and play by the way - journey to Glasgow is shite!"
"The band were fantastic last night!!! Loved it.
As for the support band, Rosewood, they are gonna be HUGE!!!!!!! For a support band, they just rocked the house - brilliant sound, and great tunes.
Was it me, or did the left handed guitarist have his guitar strung upside down??? Either way - great stuff."
IT seems this Scottish five-piece are on a roll. Not only did they send in their 10-track CD, Based on a True Story, but three new songs too, which I've chosen to review.
The band mix the spirituality of Joshua Tree-era U2 with the swagger of The Cult's call and answer guitar sound.
It's A Wonderful Word is an upbeat rock anthem, part Cult part Echo and The Bunnymen.
Her Believer is familiar to any fans of U2 with traces of the Irish band's With or Without You. Final track Wired, with its ballad tempo and lazy guitars, owes more to Bon Jovi.
Rosewood are aiming for stadiums. ''
Special mention has to be made for the facepainting, banner making, thong wearing nutters.... good work fellas!
Some pics of the gig posted on the 'pics' page (funnily enough).
p.s. Special bonus prize to anyone who got the next pic of Emma when the top went up further?? Or is that just wishful thinking??
There have been isolated cases where particular Rosewoodettes have found themselves in the embarassing position of being refused entry to certain establishments.
Can you all ensure that you have ID when attending these after show get togethers to avoid these problems in the future.
ESPECIALLY YOU KELLIE!!!
Special thanks again to ever stunning Rosewoodettes, Kellie, Vikki and Emma; modelling their Rosewood T-shirts to perfection!! Hopefully post some more piccies on the site soon, curtesy of the lovely Fiona (the Rosewood Happy Snapper!) Thanks Fiona xxxxx
Hope to see you all again soon, looks like the next gig will be at Fat Boab's in Kincardine... keep an eye on the 'Live' dates page for confirmation.
Thanks again y'all for the support, the band all appreciate it!
Despite technical probs with Chris's new guitar it wasn't too bad!
Sure the next gig at the Cathouse will rock!!
All the best mate... hope the leg gets better before the next gig!!
Extra points next time if you manage to actually break something though!
Really though, the band had a great time and hope you all loved it as much as us.. thanks again!
