Rated 5 out of 5 by Carrzinho from Seminal shoe gazers continue to enthral. Such a thrill to see a long loved band to be able to see (some) of Just For A Day performed and a promise of new music. The Art School, Glasgow provides the tight kind of venue in keeping with their first forays of youth. The sound was excellent, and LOUD as this genre normally is. The wide demographic of the crowd rightly fawned with nostalgia and/or wonder enraptured my the dreamy tones that set upon their ears. Tighter than they'd any right to be with such a pause from gigging Slowdive changed the gears the material required effortlessly between the heavier elements of Just For A Day and the more ambient Pygmalion. Their classics obviously went down a treat but such is the quality of their new material there were no lulls in the event. Finally being all-round decent sorts they stayed back after to meet and greet their fans. Genuinely bursting to see them live again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Radio111 from Rachel Goswell be ma maw x I went with a couple friends. Slowdive were a thing before I was even born. I listen to them regularly and over all finally seeing them after 5 or so years of listening to them it sent goosebumps up and down me when I physically seen them play live.
