Deacon Blue Reunion Performance
The Press & Journal 30th December 2003
Hundreds of fans braved the winter weather to make their way to the Music Hall in Aberdeen last night for a show by Deacon Blue.
The Scots band, who held regular slots at the top of the charts throughout the 1990s, attracted a near- capacity crowd.
The fans who defied the frost and snow to see them were treated to a rare appearance by the original line-up.
Singer Ricky Ross was joined on stage by former members Lorraine MacKintosh, Dougie Vipond and James Prime in a reunion performance.
Throughout the gig, fans were treated to a host of the group's most famous hits, including Real Gone Kid, Chocolate Girl and the classic, Dignity.
