Glasgow Pavillion 4th October 1987.
The Pavillion is a medium sized theatre and was sold out for this show.
I was lucky to get a returned ticket at the box office an hour before the show was due to start.
I remember that the house lights seemed to be on during the show. Or at least half on, with not much stage lighting.
The audience were standing even though it was an all seated theatre, the people near the front were right up to the front of the stage.
Rory's setlist had changed a fair bit during the 80's and now included the likes of Double Vision, Jinxed, Bourbon, Don't Start Me Talkin' and Continental Op.
There was the usual shout outs between songs for old favourites and this one fan in particular, right at the front, kept shouting out after every song.
Rory ignored it for a while but eventually leaned forward to hear what the fan was shouting for. Rory could not make out what he was saying, maybe the Scottish accent had something to do with it. After a few attempts Rory looked out to the audience with a puzzled look as if to ask 'What is he saying?'. Everyone shouted back at Rory 'Big Guns'. Rory then turned to the band and ripped into the opening riff for Big Guns. The crowd gave a massive cheer and the fan who was shouting for the song headbanged his way from start to finish.
