JandN's review of Edinburgh, Military Tattoo,

“I went to the final performance of this year's Tattoo,...”


written by JandN on 28/08/2008

Good Points
The Royal Marines were, as always, fabulous. The Norwegian performers were first rate.

Bad Points
Overall the music was not stimulating, and as another reviewer said 'There was no wow factor', unlike previous years. I was almost glad when it was time to leave. The commentary seemed disjointed and badly timed, as a consequence it was often played over.

General Comments
I went to the final performance of this year's Tattoo, and it was my 4th visit. I've sat absolutely spellbound in pouring rain in the past, so I can't blame the weather for my lack of enjoyment.

I'm wondering if it's the lack of military personnel that is causing the gradual run down of this once great event.

All in all it will be some time before I venture north to watch it again. I'll probably stick to the televised even, It's a smaller commitment.
