Mail music: THE MAGIC NUMBERS Barrowland, Glasgow, October 5.
The Numbers' lead singer Romeo Stodart is one of the most likeable guys in music. First, he started off by saying the band have been waiting a long time to play this set, then he stopped a song to try to break up a fight down the front.
He was even gracious enough to wear a pink tiara that had been thrown on stage all the way through Wheel's On Fire because fans asked him to.
In the face of such gentlemanly charm, it's no wonder fans have taken to his band in a big way, even cheering and clapping along with all the slow songs - such as next single Love's A Game - that made up the bulk of the set. The greeting singalongs such as Morning's Eleven and the mighty Love Me Like You were also awesome.
Backed up by his sister Michelle and Angela Gannon on vocals, Romeo rewarded the crowd with an odd but fun country-style cover of Beyonce's Crazy In Love.
