Glasvegas @ Webster Hall (more by Chris La Putt)
Glasvegas

"The missing frontman of Glasgow band Glasvegas, James Allan, is safe and well in New York, The Independent can reveal.

The band's manager, Dean Cunning, said the singer had telephoned him yesterday afternoon after finding out that people were concerned for his safety.

"James is not missing, he's in New York," he said. "He got in touch with me yesterday at about 1.45pm 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. I don't even know exactly when he went missing."" [The Independent]

Among his mysterious actions was not showing up to the Mercury Awards ceremony last night where Speech Debelle ended up taking home the prize anyway.
