REWIND FESTIVAL 2018 - SUNDAY // SCONE PALACE, PERTH
STATUS QUO, BONNIE TYLER AND OTHERS PLAY SECOND DAY OF REWIND FESTIVAL IN THE SUNNY GROUNDS OF SCONE PALACE
Music fans from all over the UK and beyond flocked to the idyllic Perth countryside, in the shadows of Scone Palace, to relive another day of 80’s music nostalgia in the glorious sunshine. The crowd of young and old were ready to party, and Rewind Festival was the place to be!
Opening Sunday were brothers Pat and Greg Kane (otherwise known as Hue And Cry) with a set littered with classic pop from the 80s, including the hits 'Labour of Love', 'Ordinary Angel' and 'Looking for Linda'. Some delightful piano from Greg while Pat showed the power in his voice to carry the tunes wonderfully. A very talented duo, and a fabulous start to a gloriously sunny day.
Coventry’s Two Tone Ska band The Selecter were up next to get the crowd moving, with singer Pauline Black in fine voice. 'Three Minute Hero', 'Missing Words' and 'On My Radio' were some of the hits performed to get the crowd moonstomping!
Irish rockers The Boomtown Rats, fronted by Bob Geldof were next on stage to strut their stuff. Classics like 'Like Clockwork', 'She’s So Modern', 'Rat Trap' and the anthem 'I Don’t Like Mondays' wowed the crowd and showed Geldof and his band still have what it takes. Birmingham based reggae kings UB40 were up after The Rats to entertain the crowd with their epic hits 'Red Red Wine', 'Kingston Town' and C'an't Help Falling In Love', which was very apt as next to take the stage were Caroline Brown and her partner Christine Mowbray from Fife. Caroline proposed in front of the crowd and Christine said yes! Fabulous, congratulations to them both.
Imagination got the music going again with classic 80's numbers including 'Body Talk' and 'Just an Illusion'. Great stuff from front man Lee John, whose voice has stood the test of time.
