This show at the Kelvin Hall on 4th September 1964 as advertised below in the Evening Times is an interesting historical snapshot for a number of reasons.
As well as being a homecoming for Lulu, who was still only 15 and had already moved to London and had a huge hit single with a version of the Isley Brothers’ song ‘Shout’,
It was opened by The High Numbers, the band who soon after changed their name to The Who and who are still active some fifty-eight years later. Though no footage of the Kelvin Hall show (their first in Scotland) exists, this clip shows them in action around the same time:
The Fab 64 show also followed the format of most pop shows of the time: short sets by each of the acts in a revue / light entertainment format with both an early and a late show.
Lulu, half of The High Numbers and The Kelvin Hall itself have all proven to be very durable, though the latter is now used as a combination of sports centre and gym, lecture theatres and a museum / archive as a partnership between Glasgow Life, The University of Glasgow and the National Library of Scotland.
