Pet Shop Boys – June 4 at the OVO Hydro

Kicking off the Summer are synth-pop legends the Pet Shop Boys who are coming to Glasgow’s Hydro arena on their Dreamworld global tour.

Tickets are still available on AXS for their Tuesday night gig with EDM stalwart Dave Pearce playing a DJ set of club anthems in support.

Glasgow Times:

James with Razorlight – June 7 at the OVO Hydro

80s groups are certainly well represented at the Hydro this June with Manchester’s indie band James performing a few days after the Pet Shop Boys. The group, best known for the hits Sit Down, Laid and She’s a Star, announced the release of their “delicious” new album Yummy and are celebrating 42 years in music on a UK arena tour.

Support comes from relative whippersnappers Razorlight, who released their debut album Up All Night in 2004. The indie rockers’ setlist will surely include bouncy hits Golden Touch, In the Morning, and their number one single America.

Tickers are on sale on Ticketmaster.

Glasgow Times:

Girls Aloud – June 8 to 10 at the OVO Hydro

The very next night more 2000s bangers will be thrilling crowds at the Hydro as Girls Aloud take the stage.

The group is embarking on a 30-date UK and Irish tour dedicated to Sarah Harding who sadly died in 2021. The outpouring of sympathy from fans inspired Sarah’s groupmates to celebrate her and the music they made together with live shows.

Fans eager to hear hits from across their versatile back catalogue such as Love Machine, Sound of the Underground, and Biology, can still find tickets for both dates on Ticketmaster.

Glasgow Times:

Foo Fighters – June 17 at Hampden Park

Changing the vibrations completely at Hampden will be rock titans the Foo Fighters, famous for songs befitting of a stadium tour such as Monkey Wrench, Everlong and Times Like These.

The veteran group will be stomping onstage on the Everything or Nothing UK Tour with hard rock anthems selected from across their 11 albums which have won them 15 Grammys.

Support comes in the form of Courtney Barnett, the singer-songwriter who emerged from Australia’s alternative rock scene, and Edinburgh-born indie singer-songwriter Honeyblood.

Liam Gallagher – June 19 – 20 at the OVO Hydro

Another milestone anniversary in music will be celebrated by Liam Gallagher on his Definitely Maybe 30 Years arena tour.

Fresh from the critical acclaim following his collaboration with the Stone Roses guitarist John Squire earlier this year, Liam will celebrate former successes by performing the entirety of Definitely Maybe on two dates at the Hydro.

Fans are also promised the treat of hearing some rarely performed vintage Oasis b-sides from this era, such as Listen Up and Fade Away which featured on the band’s compilation album The Masterplan.

A handful of tickets remain on sale at Ticketmaster.

Troye Sivan – June 23 - 24 at the OVO Hydro

It’s not just nostalgia and anniversaries on offer for music fans this June, as 28-year-old Troye Sivan takes a break from his acting career to bring his Something to Give Each Other tour to Glasgow.

Troye’s latest album, which the tour takes its name from, has been thrilling his dedicated fanbase and won the singer plaudits from critics. It notches him up another triumph as he continues his soaring ascent towards icon status.

Troye’s latest songs show a more confident artist and, judging by the rowdy music video for his Grammy-nominated single Rush, fans can expect an exhilarating spectacle when he takes the stage at the Hydro. Seats are still available on Ticketmaster.

Glasgow Times:

Green Day – June 25 at Bellahouston Park

Pop-punk ‘elder statesmen’ Green Day are the next music legends coming to Glasgow on their global Saviors Tour.

The band will be playing acclaimed albums Dookie and American Idiot in their entirety to mark their 30th and 20th anniversaries respectively, as well as a selection of old and new fan-favourites.

It certainly sounds like a crowd-pleasing show, and support comes from Essex rock band Nothing but Thieves and the Hastings punks Maid of Ace.

Fans can still find tickets on Ticketmaster.

Glasgow Times:

The Killers with Travis - June 25 to 27 at the OVO Hydro

Another anniversary that’s sure to make you feel old is the 20 years since The Killers released their breakout debut album Hot Fuss. The band has remained in the spotlight ever since, so it comes as no surprise that the Rebel Diamonds tour supports the release of their Greatest Hits compilation released in December.

The tour sees them play arenas for the first time in the UK since 2017, so fans will be pleased to know that the support act has the stature of Glasgow’s own Travis who recently announced the July 12 release of their latest album L.A. Times.

Frontman Fran Healey came out with fighting talk in anticipation of the gig, telling Chris Moyles on Radio X that the band will be “trying to blow The Killers off the stage.”

Tickers are still available on Ticketmaster for all three dates.

Glasgow Times:

P!nk – June 28 to 29 at Hampden Park

Returning to Glasgow is the irrepressible P!nk on her Summer Carnival world stadium tour. This is the second round of the tour which was extended into 2024 due to unprecedented demand from fans following last year’s shows.

P!nk has been pop royalty since the global success of her album Missundaztood, which included the hits Get the Party Started, Just Like a Pill, and Don’t Let Me Get Me. Last year’s new album Trustfall has thrust the singer back into the spotlight.

P!nk’s latest setlists show that fans can expect to hear songs from across her nine album back catalogue. Tickets in the inner circle, pitch and stands are still available on Ticketmaster.

Mogwai – June 29 at Queen’s Park Recreation Ground

Seeing out the month with a stellar lineup is the Mogwai-curated Big City day festival at Queen’s Park Recreation Ground.

The Glasgow band will mark their unwavering rise to luminary status in alternative music by headlining a day which has no shortage of big names.
