Welsh rock band ‘Paisley Parc’ to play charity gig in Lanarkshire

Welsh rock band Paisley Park are set to travel north to play two gigs in aid of Lanarkshire children’s charity Blameless and the Hamilton Accies Elite Youth Academy.

The five-piece band will perform live at Saint Luke’s, Glasgow on Friday March 4, before taking the stage at New Douglas Park the following day in a different gig.

That’s because the concert – which will take place in the Hamilton Accies FC ballroom – will be a substance- and alcohol-free event with Paisley Park showing how they used instruments, music and songs to break free from the adversities of addiction that so many have suffered in their hometown of Merthyr Tydfil – a town not too dissimilar to Hamilton.

Hamilton Accies chief executive Colin McGowan helped bring the group to Scotland.

He told Lanarkshire Live: “The aim of these upcoming gigs, as well as showcasing this wonderful group of remarkable young men, is to help raise funds for Blameless.

“The funds will help him continue his work helping children caught in the shadows of drug addiction and for our Youth Academy.

“Like Hamilton, Merthyr Tydfil struggles with the disease of addiction but, against all odds, these five young men – Jack Mason, Ieuan Evans, Morgan Stubbs, Talyn Griffiths and Jack Jones – have freed themselves from the adversities they have already faced. faced in their young lives and they share a vision, and that vision is simply to play their style of music around the world.”

The band’s single, ‘Lost’, has already reached number one on the Australian independent radio charts and their soon to be released latest single, ‘Mean Streets’, tells a hard-hitting story of life on the streets of Merthyr Tydfil.

Before the concert, it is hoped to organize a friendly football match between Hamilton Accies and a Welsh team.

Tickets for the Saint Lukes concert, located at Gallowgate in east Glasgow, cost just £15, with all proceeds going to Blameless, and can be purchased online.
