Full description
From the Royal Concert Hall to King Tut’s, the tour is a whistle-stop guide around Glasgow city center, an area teeming with music venues from the past and present.

First, listen to the Apollo stories and check out the home of Celtic Connections. Hear tales from the heyday of the long gone Empire and listen to the legends from the late, lamented Apollo. The Conservatoire and Glasgow School of Art have both played a big role in the city's music scene and on this tour, you will listen to all the stories. Moving on to the Centre for Contemporary Arts and Nice 'n' Sleazy, the tour covers diverse genres and eras from dancehall and traditional jazz to punk, pop, and today's young guitar heroes.

The music mile finishes at King Tut's Wah Wah Hut where you have 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 the tour and explore a neighborhood rich in both musical myths and scuzzy backroom stages where the next generation of guitar heroes are paying their dues.
