Missing Glasvegas Singer FoundBy admin • Sep 10th, 2009 • Category: So Fucking Weird
Glasvegas frontman James Allan has has been found safe and well after he was missing for nearly a week.
The Scottish rockers were nominated for the prestigious Mercury music prize, but Allan failed to show up to the London ceremony on Tuesday night. His disappearance forced the group to cancel their scheduled performance at the show.
Guitarist Rab Allan admitted they hadn’t seen him since last Friday and were starting to worry. He says, “We did a festival in Italy and came back and the last I’ve seen of him was at the airport. The last we heard of him was after we got off the plane on Friday. I emailed him but he didn’t reply. We thought he would turn up at the Mercury Prize at the last minute.”
The singer has now been found safe and well in New York, with the band’s manager Dean Cunning revealing he received a phone call from the star confirming his whereabouts.
He tells British newspaper The Independent, “James is not missing, he’s in New York. He got in touch with me yesterday to tell me he was OK because he knew people were worried, but to be honest I’ve been just as much in the dark about this as anybody – the last time I saw James was at the gig in Cardiff (supporting U2 on August 22). I don’t even know exactly when he went missing.” (Source: Canoe.Jam)
