The Proclaimers - Dunfermline - 2002

6th June 2002
The Glen Pavilion, Dunfermline

Dunfermline Glen Pavilion

This was the shortest distance I had ever had to travel for a gig - a mere 1.8 miles from front door to venue.  The Proclaimers’ choice of location within Dunfermline was a bit of an odd one; for Pittencrieff Park (or The Glen) Pavilion boasted just a single relatively small hall, better suited to Antique Fairs and Model Railway exhibitions.  Both of which, by coincidence, I had recently attended there.

That being said it proved to be perfectly fit for purpose this evening, lending proceedings a decidedly relaxed and intimate atmosphere. 

The Boys did not have any new material to promote in 2002, so we were treated to a very similar set list to the one we had seen in Glenrothes the previous year.  If memory serves, a couple of songs from the Persevere album were dropped to make way for King Of The Road and a rendition of Smokey Robinson’s Get Ready

But then again, maybe I am just havering.
