SINGER James Arthur will play the Hydro tonight in front of his 'home-crowd' - well almost.

The former X Factor star is actually half Glaswegian - his dad Neil was born in the city so we are claiming him. 

During previous Glasgow shows he has taken in some of the city sights and even trained with the Rangers squad at Murray Park.

The Middlesborough-born star said that training with the squad was a "dream" after hearing stories about club heroes Ally McCoist, Mark Hateley, Brian Laudrup and Paul Gascoigne from his dad.

Catch James Arthur at the Hydro tonight. 

Door open at 6.30 pm and the star is expected on stage at 8.45 pm.
