The Spirit of PunkWe wanted to let you know that Laurie will be joining his band mates from The Cuban Heels for a one-off gig (and their first since the 80s!) at The Spirit of Punk, an upcoming celebration of Inverclyde’s 70s and 80s music scene taking place at The Beacon Arts Centre, Greenock on 12th July 2019.

Important Update Regarding Event Cancellations

We’re very sorry to announce that due to unforeseen circumstances all of our upcoming gigs and appearances have been cancelled.

Anyone who has already purchased tickets for The Glad Cafe, Glasgow on Saturday 9th June 2018 will be refunded shortly and are advised to email support@musicglue.com with any questions or concerns regarding their refund.

We know lots of you were looking forward to seeing us this year – some for the first time – and understand there will be disappointment, however we hope you’ll appreciate this is a difficult decision for any band to make and one we wouldn’t make unless it was absolutely necessary.

We’d also like to extend our sincere apologies to those of you attending festivals this summer with the intention of seeing us live and hope you’ll still have a great time enjoying their incredible line-ups in our absence.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
