Castlemilk singing sensation Gerry Cinnamon announces FOUR Glasgow gig dates
CASTLEMILK singing sensation Gerry Cinnamon has announced four Glasgow gig dates.
Fresh from his sold out UK and Ireland headline tour - and ahead of taking to the main stage at TRNSMT Festival this weekend - he’ll be hitting two of the city’s most popular music venues.
Answering calls from fans today, the 32-year-old has set out to smash his own record by announcing multiple nights across both the O2 Academy and Barrowland Ballroom.
Gerry Cinnamon’s Barrowland debut in 2017 affirmed his legacy of selling out shows in record time.
Just one Facebook post and less than five minutes was all the ‘Belter’ hitmaker needed to sell out multiple nights at the world-famous venue, becoming the first unsigned artist to do so.
It also earned him a place in the music institution’s hall of fame alongside David Bowie, Noel Gallagher, Paul Weller and Ocean Colour Scene.
The Glasgow singer has had an incredible journey from recording songs on his phone and uploading them on social media, to releasing his hotly-anticipated debut album ‘Erratic Cinematic’ which clocked in at number five in the UK iTunes album charts.
His live shows are infamous for their wild atmosphere and special singalong moments.
Gerry said he was “buzzing” to be playing in Glasgow again.
He added: “My last stint was absolute mayhem. Expect nothing less from these gigs.
“The last year’s been beyond wild. The album’s flying. Scottish tour sold out in jig time. England and Ireland dates done the same. There’s no marketing machine behind us. It’s all just from word of mouth.
“That means the folk who come to the gigs are there ‘cause they love their tunes. That means it’s real. See when the crowd’s with you singing every word - it’s a mad feeling. Beautiful mayhem.”
The Glasgow show dates are:
O2 Academy Glasgow – Friday December 14, 2018
O2 Academy Glasgow – Saturday December 15, 2018
Barrowland Ballroom – Sunday December 23, 2018
Barrowland Ballroom – Monday December, 24 2018
Tickets for all shows go on sale Friday, July 6 at 9am via gigsinscotland.com.
