Debut album 'Hats Off To The Buskers' will hit double digits next year
The View have announced a new set of live shows in Glasgow next year to mark the tenth anniversary of their debut album ‘Hats Off To The Buskers’.
The Dundee four-piece came to prominence in January 2007 with the release of the album, which contained such songs as ‘Same Jeans’ (which hit number 3 in the UK singles chart) and ‘Wasted Little DJ’s’. The band were also part of the ‘Indie Rock’ leg of the 2007 NME Awards Tour, along with The Horrors (with whom they formed an unlikely alliance while on the tour), headliners The Automatic and opening act Mumm-Ra.
To celebrate 10 years of ‘Hats Off To The Buskers’, The View will play four special anniversary show at legendary Glasgow venue King Tut’s in February. See the full schedule below.

Tue February 21 2017 – GLASGOW King Tuts
Wed February 22 2017 – GLASGOW King Tuts

The singer revealed that he realised he needed help after he was removed from a flight from Spain to Glasgow in June, which was diverted to France in order for Falconer to be arrested.
Falconer told The Sunday Mail: “I know for a fact I have a problem. But it’s hard to bite your tongue sometimes and straight away I start blaming everyone else. I say ‘They’re as bad as me’, but they’re not the people needing to go to rehab.”
