Roy's long time friends Jasper Carrott.

Jasper ably introduced Roy as his band preceded him and readied the took their place on the stage and awaited the arrival of the former Move, ELO and Wizzard man in front of the assembled cameramen, who were filming the event both for television and promotional purposes.

Roy invited Charlie and Craig Reid to join him. And Scottish duo: The Proclaimers then delivered a powerful four  song mini-set including, naturally, their own anthems "Letter From America" and "I'm Gonna Be [500 Miles]", the latter of which brought the those watching to their their feet as the festive party atmosphere enveloped those watching.
