Glaswegians were left baffled over the last few days as one of the biggest rock stars in the world was spotted behind the wheel of a bus.

However, all is not as it seems. Ahead of Foo Fighters gig at Hampden, First Bus hired a Dave Grohl lookalike and left travellers stunned.

The 'frontman' was pictured driving the the X31 Hampden Express – the same service that will offer Foo Fighters’ fans an easy way to get to Hampden on Monday, June 17.

Gig-goers will be able to hop on special services frequently from 6pm onwards outside O’Neill’s bar on Union Street. Passengers will be dropped off on Cathcart Road behind Hampden’s West Stand.

A return service will also be in operation, taking passengers back into the city centre via the same route.

Graeme Macfarlan, Commercial Director at First Bus Scotland, said: “Having the Foo Fighters in the city is a huge boost and we know people want to get to and from the gig safely and have a good time.

“It’s not every day you think you see a worldwide superstar driving the X31 but what better way to celebrate than having our very own ‘Dave’ join the ranks?”
