Gigs in Scotland presents Jack Savoretti & The Divine Comedy at Kelvingrove Bandstand

Gigs in Scotland is delighted to present the first in a new series of shows at Kelvingrove Bandstand Glasgow on 1st and 2nd June 2017.

Jack Savoretti will headline on Thursday 1st June, plus special guests to be announced. Savoretti’s latest album Sleep No More debuted at #6 on the UK albums chart, his highest appearance to date. The album garnered a coveted spot on the A List at BBC Radio 2, along with praise everywhere from Mojo and The Independent to Q Magazine, which hailed his "poet's eye for detailed yet economical observation." The record's early success comes on the heels of 2015's Gold-certified 'Written In Scars,' a Top 10 album in the UK that proved to be Savoretti's international breakout as well as a turning point in his musical philosophy.

Friday 2nd June will be headlined by The Divine Comedy, plus special guests to be announced. Since The Divine Comedy’s inception in 1989, Neil Hannon has time and again proved to be one of the UK’s best and most original songwriters. His 2016 album Foreverland exemplifies this, with references to everything from Catherine the Great to the French Foreign Legion. The album also resulted in The Divine Comedy’s highest UK album chart appearance to date. Prior to the release of Foreverland, Hannon successfully oversaw the transfer of his musical Swallows And Amazons to the West End stage to great critical acclaim.
