Walk 'n' Roll Glasgow's Music Mile
Tue 4 April 2017, 18:00 – 19:30 BST
From Glasgow Royal Concert Hall to King Tut’s, Glasgow’s Music Mile tour is a 90 minute 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.
From Dr Who's early days to the raw sex appeal of Jack White in a kilt, this hour-long tour explores a neighbourhood rich in both musical myths and scuzzy backroom stages where the next generation of guitar heroes are paying their dues.
A music tour in Glasgow?
In 2008, Glasgow was the first UK city to be awarded the title of UNESCO City of Music.
Using a rich, entertaining mix of anecdotes, stories and legends, this tour explains why Glasgow is such a great place for live music.
We tell the stories of the stars who have stayed, played and made music in Glasgow by visiting the sites of past and present music venues.
Our guides are music journalists, musicians and music students who have been part of the fabric of Glasgow's music scene for many years. They have been there, seen that and stolen the tour T-shirt.
Tour starts at the Buchanan Street entrance to Glasgow Royal Concert Hall at 6pm and ends at King Tut's at around 7.30pm.

'I took this tour as part of a deal with Student Tours Scotland and it was great... our tour guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable and you could tell she truly has a passion for this subject. Highly recommend'
'My friend and I undertook a 2-hour walk with our guide Fiona and it was some of the most fun we had on our weekend away. It was really interesting to hear all the artist stories about some iconic venues as well as learn more about the rich musical heritage of the city. Thoroughly enjoyed it and Fiona was very knowledgable and enthusiastic. Would highly recommend and would definitely do another tour if we returned.'
