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 literally follow in the early footsteps of bands like Oasis, Blur and the Manic Street Preachers. You will 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.

This tour also entitles customers to a reusable card giving a tasty 25% discount on food at King Tut’s.

Due to licensing regulations, Glasgow's Music Mile tour is restricted to age 14 and over.

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.
