Hi Jay Jay, I was at the gig at the Ayr Pavilion on the 25th Aug 1986, Here is the ticket. This was a warm up for the Festival performances at the Queens hall on the 26th & 27th August. Rory played for an age, he just kept coming back on.
I was also at the Queens hall the next night too!!

Thanks Boogie for showing us your ticket and your happy memories of these gigs

Did Rory play at the Pavilion venue in Ayr most years?

Hi Jay Jay , I think Rory only played in Ayr twice, usually he would play the Apollo in Glasgow but as this was a warm up for his 2 gigs at the Edinburgh Festival it might have been the only place available.
Ayr is in the west of Scotland I usually saw him in the east in Edinburgh.
I did take a couple of photos at the Ayr gig, don't know how bad they are I'll try and find them!!

Hi Boogie, I also was at Ayr Pavillion 25th August 1986.
Managed to get a chat with Rory after gig.
My mate took the picture below.
We talked about the interview Rory had done a few weeks earlier on the Paul Jones Blues radio programme.
I think thats Tom Jones the promoter in the background.
I think he had a radio rock show on local Ayr radio station.

Hi Fenderbass, great photo, I've got a couple of photos taken during gig but I can't find them! Great to hear from fellow Rory fans who were at this gig, we also went to see him the next night in Edinburgh.
