Thousands clamour to see Glasvegas at T In The Park

Band return to Scottish festival one year on from debut

Thousands of fans clamoured to see homecoming heroes Glasvegas at T In The Park tonight (July 11) as they packed out the King Tut’s Wah Wah Tent, playing second from top of the bill.

Watch an exclusive video interview with the band by clicking below.

The Scottish foursome were returning to the festival after making their first appearance at the bash last year, when they caused pandemonium as fans rushed to see their afternoon Futures Tent set.


The band were feeling in a patriotic mood, with frontman James Allan playing a guitar emblazoned with the Scottish national flag design, while a music stand on stage was draped with a Lion Rampant flag.

They played songs taken from their self-titled debut 2008 album plus ‘Fuck You It’s Over’ from their Christmas album, ‘A Snowflake Fell (And It Felt Like A Kiss)’, with the huge crowd bellowing the words to every number.

Allan kept chat to a minimum for most of the set, bar saying, “So… fucking lovely” early on, surveying the scene.

Later in the set the band were joined by singer, friend and fellow Scot Angela McCluskey, who performed co-vocals with Allan for a rendition of The Proclaimers‘Sunshine On Leith’.

McCluskey joined in with Glasvegas‘ open love for their home country, pirouetting on stage draped in another Lion Rampant flag.

Following a singalong to ‘Go Square Go’, Glasvegas ended their show with customary set-closer ‘Daddy’s Gone’ to enormous cheers from the home crowd.
