MIRANDA LAMBERT CUTS GLASGOW CONCERT SHORT

Monday evening Miranda Lambert continued her UK tour in Glasgow but was unexpectedly cut short. Fans have since speculated she was unwell but Miranda has been reportedly heard saying she was not happy at the treatment of her band and refused to come back on her encore. Miranda told fans during her concert that her guitarist was English and was then booed by a section of fans leaving others unhappy when the country star did not re appear. Fans have since said that if this is the reason they place no blame on the artist for her reaction to the poor behaviour of the minority. 

We must stress that nothing has been confirmed by Miranda or her management. 

Miranda finishes her UK on Wednesday in London and has confirmed she will return to the UK next year.

  1. I think everything posted was very reasonable. However, consider this, suppose you added a little information?
    I am not saying your content is not solid., however suppose you added a title that grabbed people’s attention? I mean MIRANDA LAMBERT CUTS GLASGOW
    CONCERT SHORT – Country At Heart News is
    kinda vanilla. You should look at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create post
    titles to grab people interested. You might add a related video or a picture or
    two to get people interested about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it might make your website a little livelier.

    1. Completely agree with you and as you’ll see by my other posts I always do. Problem is i wasn’t there and i haven’t seen anything around surrounding the incident or i would have tried to have gotten hold of it.

  2. I decided to post a comment because I was left a little irritated by the accusation that her abrupt ending was the fault of the audience. However, the double post by David Brown has pretty much summed up exactly what I came her to say.
    Whenever there is a chance for most Scots to have a jab at our neighbours south of the border, it will likely not be a chance missed. That is what happened on Monday. There was no animosity towards Miranda or her band whatsoever. I am saddened that she has come to our beautiful country and has left having had a negative experience. However, t just decide to not play the rest of her set is hugely unprofessional of her, and costly to fans who have paid good money to come and see her. I personally travelled 2 hours by car and back through the night to see her. I did so on the eve of my wife’s birthday, so arrived home at 2am and woke at 6am for her day. I was very much disappointed that I was left short changed by the whole experience.

  3. I guess that with the close nature of an artist and a touring band if there was any sort of attack verbally or otherwise it would be seen as an attck on all. So if this is the case then without knowing it these people have not only insulted the guitarist but also Miranda and the rest of the band. In that circumstance can you wonder at why she did not come back. Miranda has very strong views on racism and discrimination as can be seen by her stance on the recent Charlottesville issue in the USA. I would think by that stage in the evening alcohol had a part to play but no excuse for such action. I don’t know but this might mean she will not appear in Scotland again and also the word will get round Nashville of this incedent. Of course there could be another reason for the non encore but it is unusual and interesting to know if there was another reason.

  4. Having been at last night’s Glasgow show I have to say I doubt that ML has any good reason to “blame” fans for walking off in the manner that she did.
    The “booing” of one of her band members was not booing, but more light hearted banter of a Scottish crowd reserved for a long standing rivalry with our neighbours south of the border. It was all in good humour. She announced her pedal steel guy Spencer(?) was from England. To a small part of the Scottish audience this was a cue for some good hearted jeering. Not by a lot of people and certainly not sinister. Everyone was in a great place. As she introduced her band it would have went unnoticed had she not decided to jokingly refer to her band members as all from “Arkansas, Glasgow” or “Texas, Scotland” or whatever. Each time raising loud cheers and warm applause. And then she announced that Spencer was from closer to home – from Kent (?) England… Maybe Ms Lambert didn’t get it. And why would she? It is a unique thing to this part of the world. Apart from this all her band members were enthusiastically greeted and cheered throughout by the crowd. As was she… indeed I have seldom seen an artist so revered in this venue. The crowd quite clearly loved her, and were on their feet from the moment she took to the stage until she left so abruptly.
    The show’s ending was certainly not appreciated. Ms Lambert left the stage before finishing her set. Apparently she stopped one number short and didn’t return to do two planned encore numbers.
    Something may or may not have upset her, but as a professional artist she should be able to deal with most situations. Her actions resulted in many people, including myself, feeling left short changed. Having paid a lot of money to see a “star” I had been looking forward to this show for a very long time. Unfortunately there were issues early on with the sound. In my opinion the band drowned out her vocals and it took a long time to get it close to sounding okay. Despite this the crowd seemed to be really enjoying her performance. There were long pauses between numbers that were oddly like big black holes – once again only my opinion.
    She showed little or no respect for her fans, many of whom had travelled from all over the country and paid a lot to see this show. Not to mention spending more of their money at the merchandise stall. We all deserved more. I, like many people, do not have a lot of spare cash these days, yet I chose to spend my hard earned money to see, what I had expected would be, a terrific spectacle. Unfortunately what we were treated to was a stroppy, diva-esque exit by a highly paid entertainer. It is disappointing that your report says this may have been a fault of the crowd. It wasn’t.
    I am sure that it is unlikely that Miranda Lambert will ever play in Scotland again in my lifetime, or indeed even care what I or the rest of her audience think, but what I would say is that there is no excuse for her behaviour.
    Someone should tell her to be considered a real star you have to act like one.

    1. maybe you should realize Americans do not know the petty little rivalries that may go on in other countries. Sounds like you snobbish europeans need to realize how rude it is to boo someone you don’t know or has ever given you reason. She came to entertain…you certainly acted like idiots if your booing at the beginning to the show. I’d walk off too.

      1. Snobbish Europeans? Acted like idiots? First of all, I take exception at your rudeness. Secondly, I assume you weren’t at the show or perhaps you would not have said the crowd… a) booed; and b) that it was at the beginning of the concert. The booing to which you refer was little more than a small number mockingly, jeering someone in a way that should probably be reserved for someone they know well enough to have a bit of banter with. I have to say the overwhelming noise of the crowd was always appreciation for the artists on stage. Indeed, the artist and her band member in question appeared to accept it in the spirit it was intended by laughing. Albeit the star of the show herself looked slightly bemused.
        In an all seated venue, which this was, the crowd were on their feet from the moment ML took to the stage. They were there to have a good time. And indeed they did.
        This has tuned into one of those unfortunate incidents that sadly happens, and with the advent of social media people who weren’t there or witnessed it first hand are seeing words like “star storming off” which she didn’t and “crowd boos band” which they didn’t. This in turn results in leaving them with ill-informed opinions. She left the stage, casually walking off stage left having sung further songs (another two I think), raising her arm and waving to the crowd as she went. Indeed she omitted the last song from her set – I know this because I saw the set list.Although there was no “thank you glasgow” or “goodnight” there was no indication she was miffed or upset at anything. The whole audience assumed she would return and remained on their feet cheering and clapping for a full 6 or 7 minutes, before the realisation that she wouldn’t as the house lights came up. Leaving many people to come down very quickly from a really high high. This was a misunderstanding of cultures. As I said in an earlier post the jesting came out of ML introducing her band and saying thy were all Scottish in a jocular way… receiving great acclaim with the audience entering into the spirit. So when there was actually someone from the UK I assume she would expect that would get the biggest cheer. Unfortunately that wasn’t how it panned out.
        As some fans that met her afterwards have stated she expressed her feelings that she didn’t like that anyone in her band would get booed… I think it was pointed out it wasn’t serious. Perhaps she may reflect on it and realise that short changing the audience over a misunderstanding was a misjudgement on her part. If she does I doubt she will ever admit it. If she doesn’t I doubt she will lose sleep over it.
        Over the years Glasgow audiences have proved popular with visiting artists. Many artists big and small cite it as a “favourite” city to play. I hope it continues to welcome artists and visitor from all over the globe. I hope they continue to come here and enjoy our hospitality and that we continue to enjoy their performances.
