The BigTicket: Reviews.
This gig was downsized from the cavernous Clyde Auditorium to a suite at the SECC after poor ticket sales.
But like her champion Alex Salmond, the Banff singer-songwriter doesn't let unfulfilled promise get her down.
Thom and her five-piece band put in a spirited performance which had the small crowd clapping along enthusiastically by the end. There was a surprise guest appearance by X Factor winner Leon Jackson, who duetted with Sandi during the encore on covers of nostalgic Scottish tearjerkers Sailing and Caledonia.
But it wasn't difficult to see why her star has faded since she topped the charts in 2006 with I Wish I Was A Punk Rocker (With Flowers In My Hair) and debut album Smile, It Confuses People. Devil's Beat and Saturday Night sounded like characterless KT Tunstall impersonations.
Thom should trying to find her own voice instead of imitating others. Bruce White
