Struggling with the January blues? Fear not! We have the lowdown on the BIGGEST and BEST gigs still to hit Glasgow this year . . .
Bloc Party , The Barrowland, Friday 5th February 2016
As part of The NME Awards Tour 2016, Bloc Party are headlining a tour which also throws in performances from Drenge, Rat Boy and Bugzy Malone all in the ticket price! Always a great night, and one for those interested in uncovering some favourite new acts, The NME Awards Tour is a guaranteed top gig and a great way to ease you into the gigging year. Plus, the return of Bloc Party should be enough reason for anyone to get a ticket.
The 1975, O2 Academy Glasgow, Sunday 20th March 2016
Back with a new album in 2016, these jangly indie types are set to rock the o2 Academy in March. Blending their influence of 80s vibes with sharp witted lyrics, it’s sure to be a top gig and an interesting insight to where album number 2 is taking them.
Adele, The SSE Hydro, Friday 25th March 2016
It may be Easter weekend, but that doesn’t mean you can’t head to the Hydro and have your emotional fill of one of the UK’s biggest and best artists. Of course, the evening is a sell-out, as is her additional show the next day, so if you haven’t got a ticket you’ll just have to suffer through gig envy, as this girl is as perfect live as she is on record.
Brian Fallon & The Crowes, O2 ABC, Wednesday 6th April 2016
Brian Fallon has broken away from The Gaslight Anthem for a solo stint. Although only a few of his solo tracks are available online, we should have an album to devour before this tour to get us in the mood for some Springsteen inspired rock. The great thing is, his solo stuff isn’t a million miles away from Gaslight, so fans are sure to enjoy him going it alone.
Busted, The SSE Hydro, Friday 13th May 2016
The boys are back! Literally any fan or Busted or Fightstar never thought they’d see the day that Charlie Simpson would come crawling back to the boy-band that launched him. Nevertheless, about 13 years after they first wowed us, the boys are back to play all those old songs about Britney, air hostesses and futuristic worlds where girls have three boobs we all love. Playing on Friday the 13th might be unlucky for some, but for £150+ tickets to get right in front of the stage, the boys certainly will be fortunate!
