Glasvegas at Gloucester Guildhall

Event ended

Dubbed the ‘best new British band’ on the cover of NME in June this year, 2008 has treated Scottish rock band Glasvegas very well indeed – with compliments flooding in thick and fast, before they’ve even released their debut album.

Seen at all the major festivals this summer, their latest single ‘Geraldine’ was their first release to hit the top 20 in the UK charts, with ‘Flowers and Football Tops’ and ‘It’s My Own Cheating Heart That Makes Me Cry’ all proving sing along crowd pleasers.

Hailing from Glasgow, not Las Vegas, Glasvegas are James Allan on distinctive Glaswegian vocals, Rab Allan on guitar, Paul Donoghue on bass and Caroline McKay on drums – all wrapped up in a wardrobe of black.

With the re-release of their debut single ‘Daddy’s Gone’, and their debut album GlasVegas released nationally in September 2008, expect the hyperbole surrounding this band to grow to a frenzy by the time they return to Gloucester Guildhall on Sunday 21 September 2008.

With tickets costing a ridiculously cheap £8, expect this gig to sell-out, and sell-out fast. And don’t say we didn’t warn you.
