The Glasgow Barrowland Ballroom is Scotland's premier rock venue. Probably the best wee venue in the world.
The original building opened in 1934 in a mercantile area east of Glasgow's city centre, built by "Barra Queen" Maggie McIver. In more recent years, the Ballroom has become a major concert venue with a capacity of around 2,100 people, known for its acoustics and its sprung dance floor. Simple Minds filmed the video for their 1983 hit single, "Waterfront", at Barrowlands. Oasis, U2, The Stranglers, The Clash, The Smiths, Big Country, Muse, Foo Fighters and Marillion were a number of the acts to play the hall. Adjacent to the Ballroom itself is the Barrowland Park where there is a pathway which features the names of many artists who have played at the venue over the decades.
