Magners Summer Nights
A star studded line-up of open-air summer concerts in Edinburgh and Glasgow has been confirmed for August 2015. Veteran singer Joan Armatrading, who is currently on her farewell tour, indie darlings Glasvegas and Aztec Camera frontman Roddy Frame will be among the acts playing at the revamped Kelvingrove Bandstand in Glasgow. The recently-restored venue in Glasgow’s west end will be hosting its second year of “Magners Summer Nights” in August. The Flaming Lips, The Waterboys and James will all be appearing at the Ross Theatre in the capital after the series of shows were expanded to Edinburgh following the sell-out success of the first year in Glasgow. They will be the first acts to perform outdoor shows in the historic venue in Princes Street Gardens during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe for almost a decade. The line-up in Glasgow also includes singer-songwriter King Creosote, who will be performing the acclaimed “From Scotland With Love” show originally commissioned for last year’s Commonwealth Games, Echo & The Bunnymen and Ben Folds. Tickets for all six Magners Summer Nights shows, which are being staged over three weekends in August, go on sale on Friday 20th March.
