Dundee band The View have announced details of a comeback gig – as they prepare to perform together for the first time in five years.
The rockers – who shot to fame when debut album, Hats Off to the Buskers, went to number one – are playing the O2 Academy in Glasgow in December.
It comes just weeks after The Courier revealed that the band have been back in the studio working on new material.
The Same Jeans stars have been on a hiatus since 2017.
Band have ‘drive and hunger’ for live return
A post on the band’s Facebook page said: “It’s an honour to be able to play our songs to live audiences again and we know you’re ready!
“The View are probably in the best position we have ever been in to play live, so get ready for O2 Academy Glasgow in December with Shambolics and The Roly Mo!
“Taking some time to refocus has given us all the drive and the hunger to smash this and we want you all there making magic happen.”
A photo of the band only features three of the original members – with drummer Steven Morrison missing.
It’s an honour to be able to play our songs to live audiences again!
