Glasgow Music City Tours offer guided walking tours of the city's vibrant music scene. In 2008, Glasgow was the first UK city to be awarded the title of UNESCO City of Music. Using an entertaining mix of anecdotes and stories, the tours explain why Glasgow is such a great place for live music. By visiting Glasgow's most iconic venues - both past and present - our tours tells the tales of the stars who have stayed, played and made music in the city.
From Glasgow Royal Concert Hall to King Tut’s, via Glasgow School of Art, Glasgow’s Music Mile tour is a whistle-stop guide around the city centre, an area teeming with music venues past and present.
Hear tales from the heyday of the late, lamented Apollo; check out the home of Celtic Connections and marvel at the many successful bands that started out at King Tut’s.
Finishing at the famous venue, this tour includes the opportunity to follow in the early footsteps of Oasis, Blur and the Manic Street Preachers. Depending on access, you may have the chance to stand under the lights at King Tut’s and grab a selfie on the stage that helped launch so many great acts.
