NEWS: Guitar legend Duane Eddy to appear at the King’s in Glasgow
Guitar legend Duane Eddy is to perform at the King’s Theatre in Glasgow as part of a rare UK tour.
Duane, who celebrated his 80th birthday in April, will appear on stage on Sunday 28 October.
Duane is one of the original guitar heroes, who put a deep and resounding twang into Rock ‘n’ Roll – the signature sound of a string of late ‘50s and early ‘60s instrumental masterpieces. Infused with elements of country, blues, jazz and gospel, his many hits include: Rebel Rouser, Peter Gunn, Shazam, Ghost Riders In The Sky, Cannonball and The Lonely One.

Duane has become the most successful instrumentalist in rock history, charting 15 Top 40 singles from 1958 through 1963 and selling more than 100 million records worldwide. He has won a Grammy for Best Rock Instrumental, Lifetime Achievement Award for Instrumentalist from The Americana Music Association and was inducted into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1994.
A true pioneer and living legend, Duane looks forward to returning to the UK for his three celebratory shows in October.
