A CITY open-top tour bus will soon be adding a music tour to its sightseeing offering in recognition of Glasgow’s thriving music scene.

City Sightseeing’s Glasgow music tour will be available on channel eight of the on-bus commentary system from January 20.

The tour will showcase Glasgow’s vast musical history, while promoting some of the city’s most iconic music venues including King Tut’s, Barrowlands, The Royal Concert Hall, SWG3 and the OVO Hydro.

The music tour will be narrated by the renowned multi-award-winning singer-songwriter, Eddi Reader, famed for her work as frontrunner of Fairground Attraction and solo work.

Reader’s recognisable voice is rooted in the heart of British music with a number of musical genres under her bow including, pop, folk music and her musical interpretation of the work of Robert Burns.

The tour will feature a range of interesting stories, facts, and some insider knowledge from Reader herself on what exactly makes Glasgow such a wonderful, vibrant and musical city.

Reader said: “I adore my town – it gave me music and romantic dreams that set me on a path to the future.

“I’m honoured to be given the opportunity to tell people all about the creative spirit of Glasgow, how

it seeps out of every sandstone corner and shines out of every Glaswegian.

“Follow me along the road while I show you the musical beauty of my town past, present and future.”
