EAST End boy Dylan James Thomas who watched bands on stage at the Barrowlands and "dreamed" of what it would be like to play there has sold out the iconic ballroom.

The 24-year-old who drew massive crowds to his set at TRNSMT in September will play the huge gig on Friday, April 29 next year.

The legendary music venue is the next step on the ladder for Dylan who recently played to a sold out crowd at St Luke's.

The singer took to Twitter last night to share his delight at the achievement. He said: "Barras sold out hahahaha come on!

"Kicked about the market when we were wee boys getting chipped PlayStation games and DVD’s haha. "Watched my favourite bands there since I was old enough to go to gigs dreaming of what it’d be like to headline the stage. Now it’s a reality, Cheers."

The Barrowlands isn't Dylan's first foray into iconic music venues. He has sold out King Tuts quicker than any other debuting Scottish artist. He has clocked up over a million streams of his early material and went on tour with Gerry Cinnamon who mentored the youngster.
