Glasvegas praise ‘special’ Shockwaves NME Awards Tour

Band say they've made friends as dates come to an end

Glasvegas have spoken about how much they enjoyed playing the Shockwaves NME Awards Tour, which culminated in a triumphant show at London‘s O2 Academy Brixton on Saturday (February 21).

The band headlined the nationwide tour alongside Florence And The Machine, White Lies and Friendly Fires.

Speaking to the Daily Record, Glasvegas guitarist Rab Allan said the tour offered the Scots the chance to party hard, as well as mix with the other bands on the tour.

“We’ve always been a band that likes to stay up and party,” Allan said. “If we didn’t, we’d go crazy. I think these things come hand in hand. Most of the time it’s just us four in the band – but the NME tour has been special.”

Allan also bigged up Florence Welch from Florence And The Machine.

He said: “Florence is so special and one of the best female singers I’ve ever heard. She’s such a good laugh. After the BRITs night, she came into the soundcheck for the NME date and had to run back out again and be sick.”
