Ever hear of the ‘The Savage Stage Bells‘? Probably not and neither did the fans who queued for a Glasvegas show at the legendary King Tut’s Whah Wah Hut on Wednesday night. The band’s facebook page had announced that the new act would be their support slot at their Glasgow charity gig. Since no information about the group could be found online fans were eager to get the show on the road and see who this surprise act would turn out to be.
At 8:45 the mystery was solved as none other than Glasvegas took the stage in full ‘St Peppers’ attire.
Check out the band’s cover of ‘Help’ in the fan video below:
“Lennon will be spinning in his grave, ‘those cunts fae Glasgow are making a cunt of us’,” joked Allan as The Savage Stage Bells brought their first, and probably last, gig to an end.
Glasvegas returned to the stage in their familiar all-black guise later in the night and played a set of fan-favourites and new tracks, including ‘Young Blood’, ‘Later…When The TV Turns To Static‘, ‘If‘ and recent single ‘I’d Rather Be Dead (Than Be With You)‘. The band also performed the rarely played ‘Whitey‘, the NME reported.
The Savage Stage Bells set list:
‘I Wanna Hold Your Hand’
