I first heard The Snuts when they supported Louis Tomlinson at the O2 Academy in Glasgow during LTWT and I immediately liked their sound. The more I followed them on social media and kept updated on any new music they released, the more they became one of my favourite bands to listen to. So when my friend Kazz had managed to get tickets to their sold out show at the Barrowlands Ballroom in Glasgow, I knew I had to go. 

I met up with Kazz on Sauchiehall Street for some drinks and food before we booked an Uber to the venue. However, thanks to my brain being rather busy and disorganised, I booked the Uber to take us to SWG3 – the venue that I’m seeing another band play in next week – instead of the Barrowlands and I didn’t realise this until we were about to get out of the taxi. It took a good few minutes to sort out the situation and get back on track. Unfortunately, since the two venues are on opposite sides of the city and the traffic was rather heavy, we missed the opening acts, Kerr Mercer and Theo Bleak, although we heard from fans in the crowd that both were fantastic. I’ve heard Kerr Mercer play before and I was sorry to miss him. Luckily, we were able to join the queue, get drinks, and secure a decent spot not too far from the stage with about 10 minutes to spare before the lights dimmed and the band came on stage. 

Immediately, the crowd, which was already tightly packed within the venue, surged forwards, cheering as the band began to play Novastar, the 6th track on their new album Millennials. The song had only been released a few days prior to the show, and yet the venue was filled with fans of all ages belting out the words along with Jack Cochrane’s amazing vocals.

The set list was as follows – 

  • Novastar
  • Millionaires
  • Yoyo
  • NPC
  • Butterside Down
  • Gloria
  • Dreams
  • Wunderkind
  • Deep Diving
  • Circles
  • What’s Going On
  • Hallelujah Moment
  • Always
  • The Rodeo
  • All Your Friends
  • Knuckles
  • Maybe California
  • Seasons (Tour debut)
  • Glasgow

After Circles ended, there was a brief break in the show where the band left the stage and a Rod Stewart impersonator came on to sing Maggie Mae!

This was a complete surprise and showed off the band’s fantastic sense of humour, as they are currently battling with Sir Rod Stewart for the No.1 spot in the UK album charts. Everyone laughed and filmed the impersonator, singing along to the iconic song, before booing in good jest as the impersonator left the stage. When the band came back on again moments later, they pleaded with fans to help them claim the No.1 spot, as dear old Rod had had his time to shine with a career spanning many decades. This was The Snut’s turn at the limelight.With their speech regarding their album out of the way, the show continued with gusto, the crowd even more riled up then before.

Interestingly, the next day Louis Tomlinson took time out of his day to tweet his support of The Snuts and urge fans to help get them the No.1 spot on the album charts. Louis is well known for being a supportive friend and this tweet shows that he has a good relationship with the band and wishes the best for them.

As if playing an astounding sold out show wasn’t enough, the band also allowed the Scottish Refugee Council to attend the venue with collection buckets in order to raise some much needed funds. Thanks to generous fans, the charity managed to raise £420, all of which will go to those who are seeking refuge in Scotland. The band tweeted to show their continued support of the charity.

Jack Cochrane’s vocals were perfect from the first note and he didn’t miss a single beat the entire show. Not to mention the rest of the band – Joe McGilveray, Jordan Mackay, and Callum Wilson – giving the audience an amazing performance on their instruments, each bringing their own unique energy and personality to the stage. The show was incredible in its entirety and everyone was excited and energised as they left the venue at the end of the night. I would advise anyone who’s a fan of this band to catch them asap on this tour, as next time around they may well be playing larger, less intimate venues. With their incredible talent, humble approach to speaking with fans, and supportive friends such as Louis Tomlinson, these boys are destined to go far. I can’t wait to see them live again in the future.
