King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut is one of Glasgow’s leading concert venues, renowned in Scotland as [b and as the venue that supported some of the UK music industry’s biggest names at the start of their careers.

Owned and managed by Scotland’s foremost music promoters DF Concerts, King Tut’s throughout its history has played host to bands including Radiohead, Blur, Travis, Pulp and The Verve before they reached the heights of music superstardom. It also hosted the first Scottish gigs for Beck, Crowded House and The Strokes, and created a piece of rock and roll history as the venue where Oasis were first spotted and signed in 1993.

King Tut’s was founded in 1990 by DF Concerts’ former boss Stuart Clumpas. Keen to promote bands at club level and to present them seven days a week at a reasonable hour of the day in Glasgow, Clumpas was unable to find any suitable venues in the city centre so decided that the best solution was to start one himself.

Borrowing the name from a venue in New York, King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut opened in February of that year in basement premises in Glasgow’s St Vincent Street, aiming from the outset to offer Scotland’s best line up of new and established bands, as well as being a relaxing place to enjoy good food and drink.

Within months King Tut’s was established as the place to hang out for Glasgow’s music lovers and for bands and music fans visiting the city, with a host of part time musicians and artists signing up for jobs behind the bar.
