Glasgow Summer Nights 2017: Tom Jones

This August is festival season, as ever, and Glasgow is not disappointing with another stellar lineup of headliners for the Summer Nights at Kelvingrove Bandstand concerts.

The concerts kick off with local boys-and-girl Texas (Wed 2nd August), whose ninth studio album Jump On Board is coming out on 21st April. The following day's concert brings us firmly into living legend territory, Brian Wilson continues his 50th Anniversary of Pet Sounds world tour with a performance of his best-loved album and other hits from his long career.

KT Tunstall takes the stage on Friday 4th August whilst on Sunday 6th August, it's the turn of South Africa's most famous band Ladysmith Black Mambazo. Joseph Shabalala and his crew have been spellbinding audiences with their extraordinary harmony singing since the mid-60s, and they're now entering their sixth decade with the leader still out front.

Boston's Pixies, not so much a band as an ongoing experiment in the creative potential of noncommunicative passive-aggression, get two nights to themselves on Monday 7th and Tue 8th August. Bassist-since-2013 Paz Lenchantin seems to have the right temperament to stand in Kim Deal's spot, possibly because Lenchantin has played with more bands than the Pixies have made albums. On Wednesday 9th August, the headliner is Californian bluesman Seasick Steve.

On Thursday 10th August Nick Lowe, Paul Carrack and Andy Fairweather Low share the bill, and The Shires bring their hugely successful country stylings on Friday 11th August; the duo's second album My Universe is the fastest selling UK country album ever.

Saturday 12th August sees the return of be-quiffed Glasgow new wavers Hipsway, after their successful reunion in November 2016. Finally, on Sunday 13th August, Arab Strap bring their own gruff, placename-checking back catalogue to round off Summer Nights on a suitably end of the holidays note.
