Live Review : The Corrs, The SSE Hydro, Glasgow (26/01/2016)

“Ah fuckin’ love you, Andrea!!!”

It only took one intoxicated, Glaswegian reveller to sum up the feelings of the entire crowd as The Corrs made their SSE Hydro debut on Tuesday night as part of their UK Tour bringing an end to their decade-long hiatus. The feeling, it seemed, was certainly mutual as the main Corr sang, sashayed and seduced her audience as if no time at all had passed since their late 90s heyday.

The pop/rock sibling were out in support of their long-awaited sixth studio LP, “White Light” which dropped in November 2015. Despite its infancy in comparison to the tracks that shape their “Greatest Hits” collection, the light sprinkling of new tracks went over well with fans, particularly lead single, “Bring On The Night”, “Ellis Island”, a song about immigration according to lead Corr, Andrea and “I Do What I Like”, which kicked off proceedings.

With the exception of the customary “Thanks very much” between tracks, chat was limited, but the ear to ear grins on both Sharon and Andrea Corr’s faces throughout said it all. Despite their striking beauty, The Corrs were always a band to let the music do the talking, so why change the habit of a lifetime? If there was any lasting doubt, the middle instrumental segment really DID let the music do the talking . . . Piano, violin, tin whistle . . . Need I say more?

However, it was the hits that made the evening, and wanted the fans (both old and new) wanted to hear; the piano introduction to “Runaway” provoked the biggest cheer of the evening and a mass sing-a-long of the famous chorus followed, while “Dreams”, “So Young”, “What Can I Do?”, “Radio” and their only number one single, “Breathless” took the audience on a nostalgic trip when the Irish family made folk rock cool, long before Marcus Mumford came along . . .

The gig might not have been sold out, but there was no question that the crowd were sold on having The Corrs back again. Let’s hope they don’t leave it so long until next time.
