Unknown Bar Singer Saves Take That Glasgow Gig At The Last Minute

When Olly Murs had to cancel his support slot at Take That’s concert in Glasgow due to flight delays, it created a last-minute scramble to find a replacement. With time ticking away and the pressure mounting, the prospect of filling Murs’ shoes seemed daunting for the legendary 1990s boy band.

However, fate intervened in the form of Daniel Rooney, a local musician performing at the Radisson Red hotel just across from the Glasgow Hydro. Ross King, a friend of Gary Barlow, happened to catch Rooney’s act and saw potential. With only thirty minutes to spare, Rooney agreed to step in and perform, despite the whirlwind of decisions he had to make regarding his setlist and getting to the venue on time.

Barlow and Mark Owen of Take That expressed their gratitude on social media, with Barlow acknowledging Rooney as the savior of the night. Rooney, overwhelmed by the experience, took to his own social media to express his thanks and describe the adrenaline-fueled rush from leaving the hotel to stepping onto the stage at the Hydro as the “craziest thirty minutes ever.”

Following Rooney’s spirited performance, Take That took the stage to deliver a memorable show, blending their classic hits with new material. Despite the star power of Take That, it was Rooney who captured the hearts of over 14,000 fans that night. The support and encouragement from both the audience and the band itself hinted at a bright future for this emerging talent, ensuring that we’ll be hearing more from Daniel Rooney in the days to come.
