Glasgow revellers hold 30-minute rave outside Pete Tong gig


REVELLERS got so carried away at a dance gig in Glasgow they held their own 30-minute rave in the exit tunnel.

Partygoers leaving Pete Tong’s gig at the SSE Hydro, Glasgow, were delighted to find a busker equipped with a powerful sound system.

Video shows how, after the busker put on classic dance tunes, the crowd stayed put and carried on the party.

The footage shows revellers jumping around in the air, throwing their hands up and singing along to the music.

The busker had nestled himself in a corner of the covered walkway which leads from the Hydro to the nearest train station – affectionately known as the “Smarties tube”.

At one point, a man carrying a bike patiently tries to squeeze past oblivious revellers as they dance away.

Brian said: “Plenty of coins and folding notes were going in the busker’s bucket. He’s well appreciated.”

The 44-year-old added: “The atmosphere was awesome. I’m a company director, and had two clients from London with me. They said it’s the best night out they’d had in years.”

On social media, Lidia Lee said: “Bloody brilliant. Where I come from, you’re lucky If you get an old guy with a fiddle and his little dog freezing his ass off.”

Gabe Hagen queried: “Why is Glasgow so weird on the internet?”

Jackie Chalmers added: “I just love Glasgow.”

Gordon Ip commented: “Watching this makes me want to go out in Glasgow.”
