In 1990, after eight years of slogging to build a Glasgow following, Del Amitri played Barralands for the first time. It was as if everybody had turned up all at once. We’d never heard noise like it, never seen every hand raised and clapping on the snare beat, never been so overwhelmed by a crowd. It was the confirmation of our arrival in our own home town. We did Barralands on every UK tour from then on. We did multiple nights, had Santa descend from the roof, covered Thin Lizzy and finally the Sex Pistols in the dark as we bowed out in 2002. We missed it madly on the reunion tour of 2014. We’re overjoyed to be able to announce our return to the greatest rock venue in the world.
