The Streets Glasgow 2011

Scotland 19th of February 2011

100_0428

I woke up at Callum‘s place at 6 am, though my head was going to explode. 2 hours later when Laurence and Ozzy were awake, I finally felt better, probably cos I had a shower and I knew I was going to get some food.

We said goodbye to Callum‘s girlfriend Chelsea, poor girl had to work, and we got dressed and ready to leave to the Haymarket train station, Callum was still asleep. We left him a note. We wanted to take the bus, but it was raining, so we took a cab instead. We arrived pretty early, so we had scrambled eggs on toast first and then we got a train earlier. We arrived in Glasgow at about 12.30. Our room in the Thistle hotel was ready so we could check in. Only Ozzy‘s bed was still missing. Got placed later that day. We went to see what the swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna, steam room & sunbed looked like. We spend there a few hours.

We went to have a look at the venue at about 3pm.

We saw Kevin there. We met Rob Harvey. And Cassell was there as well. I gave Cassell and Kevin a hug, and wanted to give Rob a hand. He just stood there. After what felt a very long time he finally decided to shake my hand.

We went to get some lunch at Yates. I had a bowl of chips, Ozzy a hamburger and Laurence had a hotdog. Time to go shopping for a a pair of trousers, I went to Primark, and found one that was just perfect. Then we went to HMV, but didn’t see anything interesting. Time to go back to the hotel, to chill an hour before the gig.

At 6pm we went to the have a look for dinner, but we saw Shep & Jamie, and decided to skip dinner and have a few drinks instead. Poor guys were feeling rough from last night. Hope they survived the whole gig.

At about 7.15 Ozzy, Laurence and me went inside the venue. I got 4 passes for the 3 of us from them. I could have sold the 4th pass, but I couldn’t be arsed. We all had to go to the toilet. Ozzy and I were finished and waiting for Laurence, while a guy came over to us asking where the toilets are. I told him, my toilet is here. Not sure where yours is. So he asked Ozzy. Ozzy didn’t know either. So that guy was confused and said, oh sorry I thought you were from the crew. Hahahahaha I wish! We were both wearing Streets merchandise.

Soon Engine earz, the support act started. They were so good. I just want to see The Streets. 🙂 Also Anna said hello, but we would meet up after the gig.

Time for the Streets at about 8.30. Great gig! great atmosphere! Amazing crowd. Mike is right, it is the best crowd in the world (for the streets).

During the gig, Ted gave us some wristbands. That was for after the gig. Mike asked about Shep… Who cares 🙂 I was there :p hahahaha Anyway, i didn’t know where he was. I heard later that Shep & Jamie were watching the gig from the balcony.

After the gig, I said hello to Anna, Lisa and their sister in law (I believe it was Anna‘s sister in law). It was all a bit confusing, Ted, we, the security, everyone was confused. Anyways after about an hour we knew what was going on. we got sent to the Polar bar in the venue and we sat down, and Ted & Mike came over to us. And Tim, Kevin, Rob & Stuart. Tim said that Rob wanted Holland to win the World cup last year. So did we 😉

Mike told me I needed a Union jack dress now. “Like Ginger Spice” I said, “Yeah!”… Mike said…. Hmm, NO! I have to think about it. I have a flag, might just get creative with that. I showed Mike my iPhone. It has a blue skin with the yellow lighter on it. Mike said “Wow, that looks smart!”:)

I told Mike that Glasgow was my 28th gig (Ozzy’s 26th), He said: “Wow That is impressive. You’ve Probably done more then me”. hahaha Then I told him that when he told me that, We didn’t have to feel like we had to do all the USA dates in 2009, cos it would be a lot of travelling, that Ozzy said well, Mike is doing all of them. He burst out laughing. hahahha

I got a photo taken.

What an amazing day.

After a couple of hours everybody was gone, to the main room. We found out, when we were about to leave. Said goodbye to Ted & Stuart then we left. Mike left already.

Bedtime.

I heard so many secrets, one was that he was playing on T in the Park, and Mike said “you should come”. I told him that, I would love to, but that I can’t afford it after I bought my own house in Amsterdam. Then he offered to pay my flight. I can’t say no to this. Really looking forward to T in the park! Thank you so much Mike. I cried.

Also he told me that he had a 2nd baby coming up. Im well excited for him and his wife Claire.

And he’s doing stuff with Rob Harvey, they are working on an album together. It’s for The D.O.T.

Another amazing Streets weekend. Scotland this time. Will see you next week in Birmingham.
