Limahl – Live on Stage on Saturday !!!!!!! The Rewind Festival, Scotland

July 16, 2012

Saturday July 21st is an important day for all fans of Kajagoogoo.

For those in the south of the UK, we have Steve Askew live on stage with Lu Cozma at the Bedford River Festival.  For those of us further north we have Limahl performing at the Rewind Festival in Scotland!  Good times indeed.

The KajaFax email inbox has been inundated with enquiries about the event with questions coming in about everything from the set list to ticketing arrangements!

We have already detailed the Bedford event HERE – today we concentrate on the event in Perth with Limahl.

Although KajaFax has a great relationship with the individual members of Kajagoogoo, we are not ‘privy’ to Limahl’s set list for the day, which is a closely guarded secret!   What we intend to do today is give you all the practical information that you need for the event, and also give the lowdown on our top tips for what we think you may expect from Limahl on the day.

HOW TO GET TO THE FESTIVAL:

BY CAR

There is plenty of parking at Scone Palace and it is free; Scone Palace is situated 2 miles north of Perth on the A93.  If you have a Sat Nav, the postcode is PH2 6BD.  However, when you get near to Perth, look out for signs to the festival and follow them for the best route from your location.

BY TRAIN

The nearest train station is situated 3 miles from the festival and is Perth Railway Station.

BY SHUTTLE BUS FROM PERTH

For those of you travelling in to the festival from Perth City Centre, Stagecoach will be operating a shuttle service over the weekend to the festival site at Scone Palace.  The service will operate from outside Perth Concert Hall, Mill Street, Perth every ten minutes from 12:45 until 20:00 on Friday, with the last bus returning from Scone Palace at approx. 22:25.  The service resumes from 08:45 until 20:00 on Saturday and again on Sunday, returning from 22:00 until 01:30 each day.  On Monday buses will return from Scone Palace from approx. 09:00 until 13:00.

ENTRY TO THE ARENA:

The arena opens at midday on Saturday and Sunday (and is open at 18:00 on Friday for both Weekend and Camping ticket holders).  Throughout the site there are a wide range of bars to choose from, as well as a fantastic range of food units.  Don’t worry about going hungry!

The main stage starts at 14:00 on both Saturday and Sunday, and finishes between approx. 22:15 – 22:45 on both days, with the site remaining open until 01:00.

CASH:

Don’t panic about money….a cash machine is also available on site.

Dress for the prevailing weather conditions and remember it will always get cooler as the evening progresses!

So, you have all the information that you need – what can we expect from Limahl?

Well, we know that he is on stage early on Saturday afternoon, and KajaFax has spent much time contemplating what exactly he may choose perform.  Here is our shortlist of what we think may be on his list….

1.      Too Shy

Massive debut hit for Kajagoogoo and surely a must.  Sold by the bucket-load globally back in 1983 and been a firm favourite ever since both with fans and casual listeners alike.  Bet your house on it being performed!

2.      Never Ending Story

Another sure fire performance here.  A global hit for Limahl and somewhat of a signature song.  Loved by audiences and always performed impeccably – the show would not be complete without this song being performed!

3.      Ooh to be Ah

A good outside bet here.  Again, a massive hit and adored by fans of the ‘Goo!  According to the band, the song is technically quite demanding, so maybe only tackled on stage by a certain five piece outfit?  We hope it’s on that list.

4.      Inside to Outside

Not been performed on a stage since its initial release, ‘Inside to Outside’ is a fine song that is sure to be a crowd pleaser.  KajaFax is aware that Limahl has made reference to the song in interviews and on Twitter – we think (and hope) it may well make an appearance…

5.      Only for Love

Another hit and surely another crowd pleaser.  Limahl seems to be going through a period of musical rediscovery right now and certainly has a renewed enthusiasm for pop – this is his best ‘pop’ song and one of the best pop tracks of the decade.  We think it may sneak onto the set list!

6.      Too Much Trouble

Often overlooked but loved by fans.  Don’t be surprised to hear this on Saturday.

7.      Hang on Now

Limahl has often expressed the opinion that Hang on Now is the best song Kajagoogoo have written to date. On that basis alone, plus the fact it was a big hit for the band, we think it’s gonna be there!

8.      Shock

A rank outsider on our list – a hi-energy slab of Moroder empowered dance that would be sure to go down well. Maybe not well enough known with non-fans to be in the mix, but don’t rule it out!

9.       1983

A 2012 release and Limahl’s most recent single.  As a new song, maybe not in the spirit of the event, but in other ways, perfect for the day as it name-checks the festival itself, and celebrates the year ‘1983’.

It could, if performed, become THE ANTHEM for Rewind festivals for years to come in our opinion.  

Rewind organisers – are you reading? 🙂

Almost certainly not going to be performed however as it’s not 80’s, but one for the dream-set list! 

So, there you have it…the KajaFax guide to Rewind.   The one thing we can’t control or predict is the weather – but for the latest 10 day forecast for the Perth region, click HERE.  Let’s pray for good conditions!

The full KajaFax team will be on-site and backstage, and we aim to bring you a full report as soon as we return!  Remember, feel free to send us your photos of the event via email to admin@kajafax.com and we will publish them on-site.

Rewind Scotland is sure to be a great event and we hope that each and every KajaFax reader has a great time! 🙂

    I enjoyed that article, thanks to the Steves !
    Good point about 1983 as well. I guess that I never figured it that way but it would be a good festival anthem. Somebody should suggest it. I hope that everybody who has tickets has a brilliant day!!!

    did anybody notice the licence plate on the little yellow car says ‘GOO 1’ – class!
    woohoo looking forward to the weekend, hope the rain stays away 🙂

      I can’t beleive that I took the time to get the licence plate on that car, and it’s so small on the page you can’t really see it! 🙂 I reckon we should have given away a prize for the first person that spotted it…. We have good stats on this article too, so lots of people have seen it.

      Rewind is going to be a really good day I think – I just hope that the weather conditions don’t spoil it 😦 I’m sure that come what may – and even if we get a little wet – it will be a great day and for those who are there both days, a weekend to remember.

    I am so not liking this rain right now. Is it still on?

      all is well so don’t panic 🙂 Check out the facebook page for the event to get up-to-the-minute info……but so far, so good it seems. The forecast isn’t so bad for the weekend actually, but I guess that can change pretty quickly. Fingers crossed.

      The time is almost here 😉
