Glasgow’s Music Mile Tour

About Glasgow’s Music Mile Tour

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.

The Music Mile tour is a great way to see what makes Glasgow’s music scene tick.

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.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Glasgow’s Music Mile Tour are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
