Hairy Bikers Tour - 26/03/2010 - The Music Hall, Aberdeen

Si King, one half of the Hairy Bikers duo, unbuttons his shirt and caresses his hairy man boobs whilst cooking a curry. An unexpected sight for a Friday night but nudity was on the menu. 

The Aberdonian crowd lost it’s stiffness and revealed a jovial side in the presence of the bikers. Si and his best friend Dave Myers talked us through their lives with plenty of laughs. Slapstick jokes revealed them as a comedy duo as well as great cooks.

A story (with wonderful actions) involving Si accidentally using Domestos wipes as toilet paper instead of anti-bacterial ones had the crowd falling off their chairs in fits of laughter.

In-between the banter the bikers cooked up what smelled like heaven. The smell of South Indian king prawn coconut curry filled the Music Hall as the audience licked their lips. However only one couple were treated to the meal on stage. They got to see Si’s Nigella Lawson impression close up. Yes that’s why he was caressing his chest. The couple soon forgot all eyes were on them and enjoyed their Friday  night curry and beer.  They finished the lot.

A cringe-worthy taste test in the second half proved entertaining when the woman volunteer failed to tell the difference between white and red wine and the male volunteer mixed up pork with beef. They were still rewarded for their efforts though and were treated to a juicy fillet steak bathed in butter, cooked cherry tomatoes and piping hot linguine. 

Steam rose from the pots and pans on stage and hovered by the top of the organ and across to the balcony. The mouth watering smell felt like a heavenly scratch and sniff. Perhaps that’s the next step for television after high definition. Our senses would be in for a treat.

Film snippets of past adventures were sprinkled in between the stories and cooking. The entertainment culminated in an ending which sounds like a dream sequence but bear with me. Dave appeared in a tight purple body suit and pranced around singing ‘Don’t Cry For Me Argentina’ while Si belted a miniature drum kit. The Che Guevara tattoo which they both got in Argentina looked brilliant next to the purple shiny material stuck to Dave.

A well deserved standing ovation followed. The crowd poured out of the venue with Hairy Bikers’ recipes in their programmes. No doubt vegetarians came out of the closet and everyone dreamed of the majestic steak that night.  Well, that or nudity. 

We were treated to the clip of this demonstration which they filmed in Argentina.  We found out it was permanent marker that Dave used to draw on Si.

There's more photos, clips and gorgeous recipes on their website.


  1. The Hairy Bikers prove that you don't need to swear constantly and act like a knob all the time to get famous. They make Gordon Ramsey look all the more fake and tedious.
