Couldn't spot a stage on the south side, just loads of diggers, trucks and tractors - maybe Captainfourhorns is in charge of the set-up?

I think he'll be doing a cover of James Brown's Sex Machine, complete with gyrating hips and thrusting pelvis up to the "take me to the bridge" bit.  The queen will love it.

Then, ideally, he would bellow "Independence for Scottttllllaaaannnnndddddddddd"

whoops, forgot the bit I was replying to:

"Nice we stage up between Divit cludgie works and the dockyard, with plenty room on the road for lurkers. Looks like they are expecting around 500 folks in the arena itself. Glad I booked the day off - now don't go and spoil it with any simple minds covers :)

If you have Facebook you can see the full set on the Queensferry Crossing page. Watch from about 2 hours twenty minutes in. Betelgeuse sounds as great as ever.

Who was the other violinist?  Did Ziggy actually play anything this time?  How did people get an invite to it does anyone know? David were you in the stand or did you have a pair if binoculars and hiding in the trees? Shame about the weather and that those folk who were there had to be kept a safe distance away, neither wonder Kenny was having a laugh about it.
