Wow - that's excellent that someone has decided to organise something like that.
I know there's a Beatles tribute band up in Dundee because they went down and played in Glasgow the night before Macca played at Hampden last year. I can't remember their name but I wonder if they are behind this weekend.
Whoever it is, good luck to them!

Yeah, I was on the Paul McCartney forum before I went up to see him in Glasgow last year and there were a few people saying they were going to see a Beatles tribute band in Glasgow the evening before the Macca gig. It was definitely Revolver they mentioned. They got very good reviews afterwards from the people on the Macca forum who attended.

Last night I booked a hotel for the weekend so I'll enjoy the whole of Saturday & Sunday before catching the last train home depending what time the last band is on for.

It sounds cool. Glad you enjoyed it! I'd love to get to Scotland someday and see where some of my ancestors lived.

That sounds great, Euan Buchan; I'm envious!

Hmmm....speaking of ancestors, Kelley, mine come from Ireland and Lithuania. I don't suppose there's a Lithuanian Beatles weekend.  ha2ha   (Perhaps an Irish one, though!)

Kathy, my grandfather was Irish but during the potato famine his grandparents I guess it would be went to Scotland. I still have a little piece of a tinsel garland his mother used to decorate their Christmas trees before they came to America in 1903.
