Tickets are now on sale. Will anyone else be paying a visit to the world's most northerly international venue?

Wow, this one slipped under my radar! I'll look at getting some time off. I'll be surprised if Aberdeen in early May is anything other than bloody cold though.

I have mixed memories of Aberdeen. I attended a union conference there years ago, and the fried breakfast at the B&B I stayed at was the meanest ever! It featured a quarter of a mushroom! It wasn't even a particularly big one, either. There must have been a single mushroom between all the guests who were staying there.

Another visit was en route to the Faroe Islands in the days when an occasional ferry still went from Aberdeen to Torshavn. We arrived on the train on the evening of a big England v Germany World Cup match and were desperate to get to the youth hostel in time for the start. I commented that the streets were deserted because everyone must be watching the football. The miserable anti-English taxi driver claimed not to know that there was even a game on!

Still, Aberdeen does have its good points I suppose. It's just a question of finding them!

If that site map is to scale, you've probably booked up a complete stand if there's two of you Harvey.

It does rather beg the question, what is the rest of the ground going to be like ? If those are the only 'stands'. Surely they are going to look at something temporary like the excellent facilities in Dublin, or are they being realistic in the no's expected in the far north as well as in the middle of spring. :(
