          Hi all Trip advisories, I have a question, a long time ago, about 4 years ago, I saw a band in this great venue, they played an Amy MacDonald track, This Is The Life, faster and faster, I have a special request to find out who the band were for personal reasons, it would mean a lot to me. Was it something elephant ? Thank you in anticipation.
