The first of two nights of the Apollo Theatre, in Scotland.

We did a tour of Britain and the last night was in Glasgow – good place to have your last night – and I’ve always got on great with Glasgow. I don’t know if it’s because I’m from Liverpool, but I’ve never had trouble. On that tour, we did this one new number, which was ‘Coming Up’. There was this one boy who came down to the front and while we were doing this number – it turned out to be the version which was number one in America: the live version, recorded in Glasgow – this kid was bopping away. Just seeing him go, I thought ‘That’s gotta mean something’ and I got one of those feelings that this was going to be a hit.
