ONE of Glasgow and Scotland’s most iconic venues has been recognised as being among the best live music venues in the WORLD.

King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, on St Vincent Street, made it onto an impressive 70th place in Pollstar’s Top 100 of worldwide clubs.

The venue’s performance beat last year’s when it made it into 96th place.

It’s entry has been seen as a remarkable feat for the 300-capacity venue on a list with venues that have a capacity of over 2,500 throughout the world.

Owned and operated by DF Concerts, King Tut’s has been going for almost 30 years and has always been at the forefront of Scottish music while losing none of its appeal.

The venue averages five gigs a week and this latest coup for the venue is based on cumulative ticket sales over the year.

The venue has always been a platform for acts at early stages of their careers with artists such as Radiohead, Oasis, Muse, Coldplay, Florence & the Machine, Amy Winehouse, Kings of Leon, Blur and The Strokes and many more playing their first Scottish shows here, with many of them returning at the peak of their career.

This year saw many acts returning to the venue including The Killers, who played an after-show following their TRNSMT Festival headline slot, and Snow Patrol, who first played the venue in 1998.

King Tut’s has also nurtured many of the best Scottish acts since its inception with Calvin Harris, Paolo Nutini, Biffy Clyro, Lewis Capaldi and Gerry Cinnamon all gracing the legendary stage.

Continuing the support for grassroots music, King Tut’s New Year’s Revolution and Summer Nights Festivals, which run in January and July respectively, are aiming to give the Scottish stars of the future a platform to be recognised, guaranteeing music lovers the chance to preview the next big thing.

Geoff Ellis, CEO of DF Concerts, said: “To have King Tut’s listed in the Pollstar Top 100 Club Venues for numerous years running is such a massive deal for the UNESCO City of Music Glasgow, and a fact the city should rightly be proud of and celebrate.

“It’s great that King Tut’s and other key venues in Glasgow’s music scene are thriving and should continue to do so in the future as our venues are vital for developing future headline acts, bringing various communities together and generating millions of pounds per annum for Scottish tourism.”
