CAUGHT LIVE; WET WET WET, CELTIC PARK.

They felt it in their fingers, they felt it in their toes.

The fans braved a biting wind to see the Wets in Paradise. And the Clydebank boys put on a show to warm the heart.

Lots of fancy videos, bright stage fireworks and Marti's powerful voice proved that, live, not many bands in Britain can touch them.

The Wets rolled into Celtic's Parkhead ground in Glasgow for their triumphant homecoming gig last Sunday, postponed a day because of the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales.

They kicked off with a flashback to 1987 and a medley of their early hits, including Sweet Little Mystery and Wishing I was Lucky.

Marti, Tommy, Graeme and Neil gave near- perfect renditions of tunes such as Goodnight Girl, Sweet Surrender, Julia Says and Somewhere, Somehow.

After the big band extravaganza of Beyond The Sea, they returned with Yesterday and the song which will follow them forever, Love Is All Around.

Former Take That fave Mark Owen was the support act, but he almost stole the show.

His singing isn't great, but his boundless energy, catchy pop songs, dirty guitars and banter had everyone begging for more.
