Popular late 80s/early 90s Glasgow pop-rockers fronted by Sharleen Spiteri with Johnny McElhone.
For over 30 years, Texas have proved themselves to be one of Scotland’s best ever bands and nothing short of a national treasure south of the border. A new album, the follow up to their acclaimed 2017 release ‘Jump On Board,’ will be unveiled on BMG. To coincide with the release, the band will embark on an Autumn tour.
Last December Texas played a sold out Glasgow show at SWG3, their fastest selling show ever. To celebrate the 30th anniversary of their acclaimed 1989 debut album ‘Southside’, the band played the entire album. After the overwhelming success of that show, Texas have decided to do the same on their forthcoming tour, coupled with a set list compiled of songs both old and new.
Formed in 1986 by the undeniably brilliant Sharleen Spiteri and her partner in crime, Johnny McElhone, they have made consistently great music throughout their stellar career having sold over 40 million records, had 13 top ten UK singles, 3 #1 UK albums and 8 top ten UK albums including their latest ‘Jump On Board’.
