Glasgow Summer Sessions

Recommended Posts

"International superstar Eminem has been unveiled as the first act to play Glasgow Summer Sessions - an exciting new music programme offering a series of concerts in the citys Bellahouston Park this August!

Eminem will return to wow Scottish audiences at Bellahouston Park on Tuesday 20th August."

So it looks like there will be a few concerts in Bellahouston Park this Summer. Who else we thinking?

Wouldn't surprise me to see Biffy Clyro play.

Heard Geoff Ellis talking about it this morning, apparently 3-5 gigs over 10 days.

Probably Snow Patrol and Kings of Leon, had heard they were going to add dates either side of the Stone Roses gig on Glasgow Green but maybe they are lined up for this instead.

I'm also expecting a big dance name to be announced, someone like Deadmau5 or David Guetta.

I guess it's quite good as a replacement for the outdoor shows of T on the Fringe which ended a few years back.

What's the capacity of Bellahouston?

When Snow Patrol played Bellahouston last time i'm sure it was 25000 not too sure the complete capacity but there were less than that at the Pope's vist i'm sure. I'm very happy with this announcement to be fair might end up getting a good band that i will enjoy playing :) It would be more suited to Glasgow Green though.

im certain that the popes mass was 70,000 in attendance ...

and i dont think you need a code for presale ...

I can't even remember to be fair, i was assuming it was less than Snow Patrol but thinking about it it was probably more. Anyway it hasn't been rumoured yet so i feel i need to be the first Daft Punk?

I reckon Muse will play - not playing T in the Park and no Scottish date on the Tour so far ..

Was thinking that.

It's ok for a gig saw Snow Patrol there and it wasn't terrible was better conditions than i expected and it was a sunny day so that probably helped. If it was raining i don't think it would be so great.

Looks like DF Concerts have been saving the bigger names for these concerts instead of T in the Park.

I think it's because they want to start it up as a fully organised festival each year. So starting with a load of good names would establish it then as the years go on we will be sat here arguing about how the festival has changed and is no longer sticking to it's roots while Neil says that he noticed this when the festival began :L Although in saying that when Snow Patrol announced their date they said they hoped to turn that into a recurring festival. Don't know if this is it finally panning out but we will see next year i suppose.

They are c**ts of the highest order in fleecing their so called customers and making it really difficult for other promoters in scotland to actually book acts never mind announce them.

I for one wont be giving them a penny of mine for these giga no matter who plays!

Anyone know if there'd be any chance of Radiohead? Didn't do Scotland at all on their last tour, haven't been up here since 2008 I think

I hate when big bands miss out Scotland coz we don't have anyh good stadiums for gigs (not a fan of murrayfield or hampden) and the secc isn't great so hopefully this will change that !

Sorry not to clues up here! How do DF make it hard for other promoters to book acts ?

If you have a choice of dates x band with a certain demographic, you could put that show on to coincide with another promoters event. It doesn't stop them booking them, but restricts how profitable it would be. They could also just use a clause in their contracts that stop them playing any other gigs in Scotland for 3 months either side of their festival. They could do this with every band on the bill if they wanted, even the little ones. Or they could just pay more, when they get wind that someone wants to book them. I'm not saying they do so, but these are the ways I would imagine.

Oh I doubt very much that its because we don't have any good stadiums, the only time I have genuinly believed that was when U2 toured with elevation. Their tour manager had worked out that they needed indoor venues around 20,000 because of the size of the heart stage. But then the band eventually added two glasgow dates, it fitted fine. Proving the no decent size venue wasn't really true, they just made a lot less money. Which is why they needed a big hall. In saying that I was always a fan of meadowbank as a venue. I have never liked hampden or murrayfield.
