The Last Dance

UistFilm presents, The Last Dance: Runrig’s Farewell Concert Film

On the 18th of August 2018, Runrig played out their final concert after 45 years in the music business, bringing to a conclusion a lifetime of song, celebration and performance.

 

The film has captured the emotion of the farewell concert, immortalising the legacy of the most successful Celtic rock band of all time, and celebrating the end of an era together with their fans. Runrig devotees from over 20 countries arrived in Stirling to sing and dance the night away. Every note and chord resonated in the hearts of everyone at the gig. Runrig signed off with an incredible acapella version of “Hearts Of Olden Glory”, rejoicing with their fans at the emotional ending of a remarkable 45-year career.

The film is the definitive Runrig experience and illustrates the importance of the band in Scottish culture and what it means to be a Runrig fan. The Last Dance is a concert to remain forever in the heart and minds of music-lovers around the world.

“There could have been no better artistic send off for a band like Runrig” Bluebird Reviews
