ANNOUNCEMENT IMMINENT FOR RUNRIG’S 40TH
« Gepost op: 12 nov 2012, 21:27 »
Van de officiële Runrig-internet-site:

It is believed that an announcement regarding Celtic Supergroup, Runrig’s 40th Anniversary celebrations next year is imminent. Formed in Skye in 1973, the band has become one of Scotland’s most iconic, musical and cultural ambassadors.

The band are currently about to embark on a UK and European Tour entitled ‘Rewired’ which is already set to play to sell-out crowds on its 15 date run. Speculation amongst fans has been rife about the plans for a 40th Anniversary celebration following the 2007 show ‘Beat the Drum’ at Loch Lomond, playing to a sell-out crowd of over 18,000 fans.

Founding band member Rory Macdonald said, ‘Our 40th Year is about celebrating where we came from and looking forward to our future. This really will be a celebration of everything Runrig and we promise a year that the fans will not forget’

Runrig are asking fans to visit the bands official website this Wednesday at 7pm when a full announcement will be made.

Finally after a lot of thought and location research, we are delighted to be able to announce our plans for the 40th Anniversary celebrations next summer.

There will be shows throughout the year, but the main event will take the form of a weekend party at the Black Isle Showground, Muir Of Ord, near Inverness.

Titled ‘Party On The Moor’ the festivities will kick off on Friday August 9, with a big ceilidh in the on-site Grand Barn, and the Showground will become a campsite and concert venue for the weekend.

On Saturday August 10, we will host the main concert with special guests and friends, and a few surprises. We are very excited about the location. We wanted this event to be on home turf in the heart of the Highlands – it’s what the fans have been telling us they would like, and we feel we have found the perfect venue. Tickets for the event go on sale on Friday (November 16).

This is an amazing anniversary to have reached. It’s such a significant milestone and little did we think as young lads back in 1973 that we would still be performing our music right into the new millennium and beyond.

We want to thank the loyal fans who have been with us from the beginning and those who have come on board at various points of the journey. This will be one of the biggest events we will ever have staged.

The ticket packages range from all weekend camping and access to the ceilidh and Runrig concert for £69, the concert and camping on the Saturday night for £60 and tickets for the concert only for £45. There are also travel packages for fans travelling from Glasgow, Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Perth and other Scottish towns and cities. The campsite will be open from 12pm on Friday August 9 until 12pm on Sunday August 11.

Ja en het valt ook ongeveer samen met de tattoo in Edinburgh dus even afwachten wanneer we daar naartoe willen en dan kan ik wellicht wat combineren. Heb nu alleen nog geen idee hoe en wat met daar komen en overnachten maar dat komt waarschijnlijk vanzelf wel. Eerst maar eens afwachten wat er de 25ste bekend wordt over de tattoo.
Groetjes,

Sandra

Tja helaas gaat dit hem definitief niet worden.  :crybaby2: :crybaby2: :crybaby2:

De meesten van onze schotlandgroep wilden de 10e naar de Tattoo en ik had beloofd dat ik dat vóór zou laten gaan omdat dat gewoon eerder afgesproken is. Bovendien was het maar de vraag of ik dit had kunnen regelen omdat ik toch met vervoer van of naar Inverness zit en hoe ik daar kan overnachten en naar de plek van het concert kan gaan....

Maar jammer blijft het wel........
Groetjes,

Sandra
