In the meantime, he is providing the final preview of the incredible new live album that relives how he closed his UK summer dates for 2022 – in epic style in front of 100,000 people at Scotland’s national football stadium on July 16 and 17th.

‘Canter’ is one of Gerry’s signature tunes, taken from his second album ‘The Bonny’ and a stone-cold live belter. That fact is beautifully realised on this live record, with Cinnamon raised by a choir of 50,000 to bring the track bursting to communal life, especially on its iconic chorus: “But it should be a canter, If you could just find the answer, You know it could be a canter, If you were a wee bit less of a wanker, Mare’ than half ae’ the time.”

“Canter” means “easy peasy” and the song is a slice of Glasgow spun wisdom about focussing on the important things and working toward your dreams.

THE live record of summer, Gerry is releasing a double album, a stunning celebration of those historic gigs, capturing the energy and raucous chemistry generated between the hometown hero and his amazing fans.

Drawing on his two hit albums with songs that generate a legendary live experience the live album includes ‘Dark Days’, ‘Sun Queen’, ‘Ghost’, ‘Where We’re Going’ and platinum-certified singles ‘Sometimes’ and ‘Belter’ It also features the first flavour of new music, with previously unreleased track ‘Sacred’, a stunning tribute to his hero Billy Connolly with his own rendition of ‘I Wish I Was in Glasgow’, and fan favourite ‘Discoland’.

Gerry says, “Live album out Friday. Been meaning to do it forever. Said before, the crowd are part of the band and the tunes are only complete when you’re all chanting.. Had to be done for Hampden.”

Gerry’s gigs have become folklore – joyous mass fan singalongs inspiring devotion and a dedicated following that has swelled, via word-of-mouth, to global proportions. And Hampden did not disappoint. The live album ‘Live at Hampden Park’ showcases that unique bond between artist and crowd that makes live music such a life affirming experience – and stands as a memento of that special summer when music came roaring back to the fans.

The two history-making homecoming shows at Hampden Park, the conclusion of Gerry’s record-breaking 2021-2022 tour, delivered as expected. First announced in 2019 but delayed due to the pandemic, it was clear that the massed ranks of Gerry’s followers, who snapped up every ticket in a matter of hours, were ready to party. Gerry made history as the first independent act and indeed the first Scot to sell out multiple nights at the national stadium. His 350,000-capacity UK and Ireland tour, included sold out shows at Birmingham and Manchester Arenas, London’s iconic Alexandra Palace, the 25,000 capacity Malahide Castle, Dublin, and Musgrave Park Stadium, Cork. Gerry Cinnamon also headlined at Swansea’s Singleton Park, the second biggest show ever held in the Welsh city, AND set the record as the first artist to sell out three headline shows at the Belsonic, Belfast, playing to over 60,000 fans.
