GREEN DAY'S show at the Bellahouston Park has been moved to allow improvement works to be carried out by the council.

The local authority said it is to embark on a major project to improve the ground in the green space.

The council said following the wettest August on record last year, the part of Bellahouston Park used for events was closed off to the public due to flooding and damage to the ground.

The intended works will cover the date for the Hella Mega Tour with Green Day, Fall Out Boy and Weezer on June 24 and also two other events which are still to be announced by music promoters, DF Concerts.

The Hella Mega Tour will now take place in the Glasgow Green.

A spokesman for the council said: “Our plans for Bellahouston Park will significantly improve the ground conditions within the park. The natural landscape within the park creates a bowl-effect where water can collect. But our investigations also identified high levels of clay and silt just under the surface, which affects the speed at which rain water can drain away.

“It is intended that the improvements will channel rain water away from the previously affected area. The interventions will help to ensure the impact of any events within the park is greatly minimised, which will improve its amenity for park users. But it will also provide confidence that the park will remain as an attractive and reliable events space.

“While this work is underway, three concerts initially planned for Bellahouston Park by DF Concerts will take place at Glasgow Green. We will be engaging with the local community around Glasgow Green as part of the multi-agency group that supports the delivery of major outdoor events within the city.”

A Community Drop-in Session has been confirmed to take place at Saint Luke’s venue on Bain Street on February 19, 5 pm to 7.30 pm.

Residents living close to Glasgow Green will have the opportunity to come along and chat with representatives from DF Concerts, the event traffic, security, and noise management teams, as well as representatives from Police Scotland and Glasgow City Council, about the planning of the events.

DF Concerts will be running a local resident ticket ballot for the shows that are taking place at Glasgow Green in June. All residents who live within the local vicinity of Glasgow Green will receive information on this from DF Concerts in due course.

The work to Bellahouston Park is scheduled to be completed in time for the Glasgow Summer Sessions concerts to go ahead at the end of August.

DF Concerts will ensure all ticket buyers for the Hella Mega Tour are made aware of the change of venue. DF Concerts has also indicated that ticket buyers don’t need to take any action as they will still receive their tickets closer to the event.
