12/4/2000: Mike Peters, The Garage, Glasgow
Mike and the boys launched into the start of the Alarm 2000/ Mike Peters UK Second Generation Tour with a vengeance. One hour and 47 minutes of blistering Alarm tunes with a few solo gems thrown in as a Christmas bonus. One onlooker commented that it was the best version of 'High on the Hill' ever! The Glasgow crowd did not disappoint and matched the band song for song with their energy and passion. A night to remember!

The Glasgow audience are brilliant; about thirty seconds into 'Marching On' the gig ignites – band and audience as one, all hell-bent on having a good time, remembering,
forgetting and looking to the future. Some things have gone and will never be forgotten some are new and will always be remembered. Everything is there to be celebrated and it is.
If I say it myself we played a blinder.

Mike said – 'see you at the Barrowlands next time'. Let's hope so – and headlining. Anyway, a wonderful night, made me feel 18 again!
