Going alone


A KEYBOARDIST who will go down in history as one of the most famous in rock will appear in Glasgow on Wednesday.

Ian ‘Mac’ McLagan was one of the animating forces behind the Faces and Small Faces and has toured and recorded with famous names such as The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Springsteen and Billy Bragg. Awarded the prestigious Ivor Novello Award in 1996 for his outstanding contributions to British music, and inducted into the Texas Music Hall of Fame in 2004, McLagan is beloved by musicians and music lovers alike, and he continues to do what he has always done best: rock ’n’ roll.

Mac will be joined on his UK tour by fellow Bump Band member Jon Notarthomas to play a string of UK and Ireland dates.

After touring as far as Japan on the Faces tour in July, which featured Ronnie Wood, Kenney Jones, Mick Hucknall and Glen Matlock, he is now taking the limelight for himself in the UK.

The pair will be playing a selection of Mac’s own compositions, including tracks from his last studio album ‘Never say never’ and maybe the odd well known number that we all know and love. He’ll also be showcasing several new songs that will feature on his next album release.

Mac will play King Tutson Wednesday from 8.30pm. Tickets are £15 from 08444 999 990.
