Glasvegas launch new album at free lunchtime Glasgow gig

Band play on the steps of the Royal Concert Hall

Glasvegas celebrated the release of their second album with a free open-air gig in their home city of Glasgow today (April 4).

Braving heavy rain, hundreds of fans came out to the steps of the Royal Concert Hall on Buchanan Street to see the band play the special 30-minute set.

They were marking the release of new album ‘EUPHORIC /// HEARTBREAK \’ with the show and so kicked off with lead single ‘Euphoria, Take My Hand’ – but aborted the song due to sound problems.


They got back on track with ‘Geraldine’, from their 2008 self-titled album, then played the single later before closing with ‘Daddy’s Gone’.

“It’s quite psychedelic playing here,” frontman James Allan told NME before the show. “I used to sit on these steps eating a roll and sausage watching people go by.”

He added: “I used to dream about playing here or in George Square. So it’s something that I’m always going to remember and cherish.”

Glasvegas played:

‘It’s My Own Cheating Heart That Makes Me Cry’
‘The World Is Yours’
‘Be My Baby’
‘Euphoria, Take My Hand’
‘Go Square Go’
‘Daddy’s Gone’
