Runrig The Last Dance
« on: August 17, 2018, 12:34:20 PM »



Cant wait for Saturday night at Stirling.

It will be a very emotional Saturday night for all the fans of this great Scottish group.

All thing must come to an end. :wave:

Loved this from Runrig, my old man likes them, could never get into them myself though, although this got my attention, wonderful song.

It's a math class, the whole deal. Just like every math class, there's a clown in the front, and everybody hates this clown because he raises his hand, he's answering all the questions. What do we do? Move on. Just fucking move on, ready or not. He's deciding we got to move on, he knows his math, I hadn't even figured out about Santa Claus yet.

I never got into them masel but did see them live 20 years ago cos the loon was into them.

Good body of work and the imagery in the first video was superbly Scottish.

Sad to hear of them "retiring" though. Why do that? If you love what you do, why give up on it? Maybe don't love what they do anymore but why not play a gig 2 or 3 times a year when there's quite obviously a demand - globally - for shit like this? No need to announce a big retirement I would have thought but there may well be personal considerations I'm not aware of.

I only really got into their music around 5 years ago but have since acquired all their recent concert DVDs. They will be missed in Scotland and Europe where they performed to huge audiences. My favourite song has to be Every River

Hard to believe that last night's concert was their very last ever. Fans still believe there will be a reunion. There is even a petition out to sign.

No idea if will happen but there will never be a Scottish band like Runrig again :thumbsup:


P.S... The very last song at The Last Dance concert was Hearts of Olden Glory..A classic  :thumbsup:

How terribly sad. On a number of levels. That video brought tears to my eyes.

The expiry of Runrig is unnecessary. There is life in the old dogs. The demand is still there, and it's strong.

It's symbolic of the death of the independence for Scotland demand. The band, like the country, is incapable of change and afraid to innovate. It's not prepared to put in the work. They just rehash the same old messages as yesteryear.

Ewen McGregor was right. It's shite being Scottish.

Not mine, I was around 10 rows from the stage in the middle of the crowd.

The band reckon the concert will be out on DVD in about one year's time. Seems a long time to edit the event :confused:
