Glasvegas appeared in the support slot at their own Glasgow charity gig last night (March 27), performing as The Savage Stage Bells – a Beatles tribute act.

On Tuesday, the band posted a message on their Facebook announcing that the support for the King Tut's Wah Wah Hut gig would be The Savage Stage Bells. This sparked a discussion with fans who tried searching for more information about the group, but found nothing. By the time doors opened, a long, snaking queue had formed inside the venue with fans eager to discover the identity of the unknown group.

Taking to the stage at 8:45pm to howls of laughter, woops and cheers, Glasvegas, dressed in full 'Sgt Pepper' outfits, announced that they were The Savage Stage Bells with shy waves and cheeky grins. The Glaswegian Fab Four then kicked off the show with a feedback-heavy version of 'Help' – you can watch fan-shot footage of the band playing this below.

That was then followed by a similarly raw 'I Wanna Hold Your Hand' before frontman James Allan greeted the ecstatic crowd. "They're saying I look like a fucking lollipop man," he said, referring to his yellow outfit, "and the wig is really fucking itchy." The band then played 'I Got A Feeling' before ending with 'Twist & Shout'.

"Lennon will be spinning in his grave, 'those cunts fae Glasgow are making a cunt of us'," joked Allan as The Savage Stage Bells brought their first, and probably last, gig to an end.

Glasvegas returned in their more familiar all-black guise later in the night and played a set of fan-favourites and new tracks, including 'Young Blood', 'Later…When The TV Turns To Static', 'If' and recent single 'I'd Rather Be Dead (Than Be With You)'. The band also performed the rarely played 'Whitey'.

The Savage Stage Bells played:

'Help'
'I Wanna Hold Your Hand'
'I Got A Feeling'
'Twist & Shout'

Glasvegas are set to release their third album 'Later…When The TV Turns To Static' in summer 2013. The album is the follow-up to 2011's 'Euphoric Heartbreak' and their 2008 self-titled debut record.
