Glasgow's Music Mile Tour

2. Glasgow's Music Mile Tour

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.

Share musical memories on this guided walking tour of the musical hot spots - past and present - in Glasgow's East End and Merchant City. Walk the oldest streets of Glasgow and avoid the usual tourist trails. The tour features tall tales, funny stories and fond recollections of great gigs.

As an Oasis fan, the main part of the tour for me was King Tuts but the rest of the tour was equally interesting with some historic venues and funny stories. The guide was very good and it was clear to see she enjoys what she does and has a passion for music and the city.

Fiona was a very personable guide, introduced herself to my wife and me! Made us completely at ease! Explanation of each stop was explained in a concise manner, invited participation from group which added to the fun!

Great tour If you like music, especially more independent music, you will like this itinerary that runs through the vibrant musical history of Glasgow.

Fiona was a hoot! Thanks for a memorable afternoon (and the steps!) can’t wait to return for a gig.

Really recommend great fun for everyone. Definitely a must do again.
