Homecoming Live

NEXT week, some of Scotland’s best loved acts will come together for Homecoming Live – The Final Fling.

Scots from all around the globe are expected to descend on Glasgow for a weekend of gigs by Scots acts.

On Saturday, November 28, at the Clyde Auditorium Midge Ure, Deacon Blue, Hue and Cry, The Bluebells and James Grant will remind you of some of Scotland’s best music while in Hall 2 the event has more contemporary acts including The View, Idlewild, King Creosote and Codeine Velvet Club.

Adding a classic vibe at the SECC’s Lomond Suite will be the fabulous Eddi Reader, Dougie MacLean, who gave us Caledonia, and virtuoso percussionist Evelyn Glennie.

As part of the Homecoming StAndrew’s celebratory weekend, which runs from next Thursday, November 26, to Monday November 30, there will also be gigs at King Tut’s with cult bands The Pastels and 1990s as well as up-and-coming hopefuls Sergeant and We Were Promised Jetpacks.

Given that the event is called Homecoming, we asked some of the stars what Scotland meant to them.

Kyle Falconer of The View: “We are proud to come from Scotland and always miss it when we’reaway, even if it’s just south of the border.

“The crowds at gigs in Scotland are better than anywhereelse in the world – they just get so into it. We always look forward to playing at home and to going to gigs here. There’s just nowhere like Scotland – the people, the banter, the music, the venues – it is the greatest place in the world.”
