Hawkes, who shot to fame at the age of 19 following his starring role in the film Buddy's Song, entertained the crowd with a stripped-back set.

Speaking to the Glasgow Times, Hawkes said Blitzkrieg owner Tony Gaughan was "building a community" with the store.

He added: "He has everything here. He's got set lists all over the wall [and] original artwork, and a guitar made by a friend of his. It's just beautiful.

"We've had a great time, we really have."
