Glam rockers The Struts heading to Edinburgh

British glam rockers The Struts will visit Edinburgh next month as part of a UK headline tour.

Speaking ahead of the gig, lead singer Luke Spiller says: “Finally we are making our way back to our motherland.

“Can’t wait for the second tour of the UK this year as it’s sure to be filled with friends, family, and lots of new fans to be made.

The tour follows the launch of Harley-Davidson’s global ad campaign for LiveWire, their first all-electric motorcycle, which features the band’s music.

In addition, Spiller rode one of Harley’s motorcycles on stage at their recent headline show in New York City.

Meanwhile, on this side of the Atlantic, their recent single Body Talks has been used in the trailer for the new series of Strictly Come Dancing.

February saw a triumphant run of shows which garnered rave reviews from the likes of The Guardian, Kerrang, Record Collector, Classic Rock and more, and next month’s tour is only set to be bigger and better.

Their most recent album, YOUNG&DANGEROUS, saw the band lauded with praise from both sides of the Atlantic, including from The Washington Times, who proclaimed them “the best rock ‘n’ roll band of the 21st century”.

They have no intention of slowing down either, with further gigs across North America including two huge sold-out shows in Philadelphia at the end of December and a show before their biggest crowd to date – several hundred thousand – at an open-air New Year’s Eve party in Nashville before they head back into the studio to begin work on their third album at the start of 2020.
