BACK in the 1970’s they were the world’s biggest boy band and were met with mass hysteria everywhere.

More than four decades later Les McKeown is the only original member of the Bay City Rollers line-up but he is still flying the tartan flag sky high.

With his excellent band mates he brought an amazing party atmosphere to the Regent and delighted the fans with endless hits with many up dancing from the start.

The screaming may have stopped but they took every opportunity between songs to engage the charismatic singer in some cheeky banter telling him numerous times how much they loved him!

Enjoying the chat he said:” There’s no need to rush. It’s been ages since I saw you - the last time was probably when I was looking at you on your bedroom wall.”

He wore a tartan-trimmed shirt and blue jeans. The half- mast trousers and platform boots are no more but the audience was awash with tartan.

There were endless hits with Give a Little Love setting things off until the audience burst into a round of Happy Birthday recognising that Les turned 64 a couple of days earlier. Summer Love Sensation was a stand- out song then in a bitter- sweet section he recalled there were many great people they had toured with who are no longer here and played their songs: Alvin Stardust, Marc Bolan, David Bowie, Mud, Sweet. He also paid tribute to original Roller Alan Langmuir who died last year.

Despite the passing of time they left us on a high in the second half with hits: Remember, All of Me Loves All of You. Shang a Lang and the inevitable Bye Bye Baby encore. The intimacy of The Regent made this feel like a private party enjoyed by all . I’m sure they will hope to return soon!
