Chart troubling Scottish band The Fratellis are to play both the Glasgow and Edinburgh street parties at this year’s Hogmanay celebrations. The audacious collaboration between the two rival events will see the Glasgow band entertaining their home crowd in George Square before rocketing along the M8 to take their place on the Waverley Stage at Edinburgh’s Princes Street Gardens. The dual appearance is set to top off 2006 in style for the meteorically rising young stars, who most recently supported The Who at the Roundhouse in Camden in London as part of the BBC Electric Proms. ‘We’re really pleased that we are able to perform at both the Edinburgh and Glasgow Hogmanay celebrations on the same night, which is amazing. It’s a great way to end what’s been an incredible year for us.’
