Live On The Lawn 2007
Confirmed acts for Live On The Lawn 2007 were Van Morrison (29 June 2007) and the Sugababes (28 June 2007). The Sugababes gig proved so popular that an extra 1000 tickets had been made available to purchase. Originally there were 5500 tickets. Sadly their concert was cancelled because one of the singers, Amelle Berrabah, was ill.
The supporting act for the Sugababes concert was to have been the Aberdeen band Outbox but unfortunately they were unable to perform when the 2007 Live on the Lawn first night performance was cancelled. The band members of Outbox are singer Michael Macdermid from Stonehaven, drummer Steve Curtis from Mintlaw, guitarist Fionn Patrick from Glasgow and vocalist and keyboard player Rach Wood from Stonehaven. Outbox had hoped to play their first single How To Fly. The support act for the singer Van Morrison was the folk star Lou Rhodes who comes from Manchester.
