Glasgow singer Dylan John Thomas has announced a tour date at the city's Barrowland Ballroom with a heartfelt social media post.

The 24 year-old star, who has played sold-out shows all over Europe and supported Gerry Cinnamon on tour, took to Facebook to share the news of his hometown show which will take place on April 29 next year.

In a touching message to his fans, he said: "Grew up along the road from The Barras so it’s mental announcing this.

"Passed it every weekend spending our time in guitar shops at Trongate.

"12yrs old getting told to f*** off when we’d ask for a shot of the £2k guitars standing in a Carbrini trackie"
