The most famous person to rock a face tattoo since Mike Tyson, Post Malone will be returning to Glasgow later this year.
The genre-blending, cloud rap superstar has risen relentlessly over the last few years, ever since he burst onto the scene with his 2015 single White Iverson, which ended up going quadruple platinum.
His first album, Stoney, broke a record set by Michael Jackson for the most weeks spent on the Billboard album charts after it stayed there for over 76 weeks.
Last year he released his third album, Hollywood’s Bleeding, hit number one in the American album charts - the second of his records to do so.
Here’s everything you need to know about his planned visit to Glasgow.

When will Post Malone play in Glasgow?
The 2020 show will take place on Tuesday 30 June 2020.
Post Malone performed in Scotland for the first time in the February of 2019, playing a sold out show at the SSE Hydro.
The American artist ended up promising the crowd that he would have to “come back every month” after enjoying a rapturous reception from his Scottish fans.
Where is the gig?
Post Malone will be heading to Glasgow Green for his latest Scottish show, guaranteeing a massive open-air gig that’s sure to be even wilder than his Hydro performance.
If the weather holds, Malone’s hazy vocal style and dreamy could make for the perfect summertime show.
The announcement of Malone’s gig came just 24 hours after rock legends Guns ‘N Roses confirmed that they would be playing Glasgow Green as well this summer, on Thursday June 25 2020.

What songs will the rapper play?
Last time around, the setlist for the gig was as follows:
- Too Young
- Over Now
- Better Now
- No Option
- Sugar Wraith
- Candy Paint
- Blame It on Me
- I Fall Apart
- Up There
- Go Flex
- White Iverson
However, since then Post Malone has released his platinum-certified, number one album Hollywood’s Bleeding, so it seems safe to assume that some newer material will be in the mix too this time around.
How can I get tickets?
Although the gig was only announced the Wednesday before, tickets for the Glasgow Green show will
go on sale at 10am on Friday 31 January 2020 and will be available from Ticketmaster.
However, those registered with Live Nation and Gigs Scotland have been given access to a pre-sale that runs from 10am on Thursday 30 January until the main sale begins.
Although Post Malone has a huge younger fanbase, some of them might miss out this time around – no under 12s will be admitted and anyone between 12 and 15 years old will have to be accompanied by an adult.
