Hogmanay, George Square

SOME of Scotland's hottest new bands will bring in the bells at Glasgow's Hogmanay party in George Square.
As exclusively revealed in last night's Evening Times, Glasgow rockers The Fratellis are headlining the bash.
They will now be joined by Dundee indie quartet The View, Banff-born star Sandi Thom and Elvis Presley tribute act, Suspiciously Elvis.

Also on the bill are the Strathclyde Police Pipe Band and Mischief la Bas. The Evening Times is media partners for the event.
The countdown to midnight will be led by ex-Runrig star Donnie Munro with Radio Clyde DJs Tam Coyle and George Bowie.
Tickets costing £10 go on sale on Saturday, November 11, and will be limited to a maximum of four per household.
Lord Provost Liz Cameron said: "Glasgow's party is the envy of the world each year.

"We have an amazing line-up from the best in Scottish rock and pop talent, to the traditional sounds we all associate with Hogmanay.

"We have a reputation for throwing open our doors as we bring in the bells and this year, the warmest welcome for first footers will be reserved for George Square as everyone parties into the wee small hours."

Organisers warn tickets must not be resold, including through any online auction houses.
