FRIDAY 4 OCTOBER UPDATE: Due to demand, we've now added a fourth show on the afternoon of Sunday 19 January. Tickets for the first three shows are now virtually sold out, so hurry... Prices start from £49 (booking fees will apply) and are available from topgearlive.co.uk.
People of Scotland: Top Gear Live is coming! After a spectacular world tour taking in Moscow, Sydney, Amsterdam, Antwerp, Durban and Poland, Jeremy, Richard, James and the one they call The Stig will headline in Glasgow for the first time ever at the newly opened SSE Hydro.
The TG Live team, having previously performed in the UK in London and Birmingham, will do three 90-minute shows in Glasgow on 18-19 January 2014, and Clarkson has confirmed that yes, there will be fire. "I've absolutely no idea exactly what we'll be up to in Glasgow, as this is the first time we've ever performed live north of the border," he said.
"But you can guarantee it will be something very special," Jeremy added. "What we can promise is lots of gigantic explosions, some very scary stunts plus a magnificent line-up of incrediblyexpensive supercars... not to mention all the usual cock-ups, crashes and arguments. Who knows, you might even see The Stig in a kilt."
It'd be a grand audience for it, because the SSE, opened earlier this week and designed by Foster and Partners, is Scotland's largest entertainment venue. "I'm told the building was inspired by ancient Roman and Greek amphitheatres so it sounds like the perfect setting for our kind of arcane humour and barbaric acts," Clarkson added.
Tickets are now on sale, with prices starting from £49 (booking fees will apply). For more details go to topgearlive.co.uk.
