Glasgow’s Music Mile tour is an entertaining guided walk around the music hot spots of the city centre. Walk with Glasgow Music City Tours and explore our dive bars, flagship concert halls and the ghosts of long gone gig venues.
From the Royal Concert Hall to King Tut’s, the birthplace of Oasis, the Music Mile tour is a whistle-stop guide around Glasgow 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.
Selfies 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.
Join us as we explore a neighbourhood rich in both musical myths and scuzzy backroom stages where the next generation of guitar heroes are paying their dues.
