An urgent travel warning has been issued ahead of an iconic rock band's Glasgow gig tonight.

Foo Fighters are set to perform at Hampden Park in the Southside on Monday, June 17.

Ahead of the big event, Traffic Scotland has advised gig-goers to 'plan ahead'.

The travel firm has said it expects traffic to be heavier than normal on the M74, M77, M8 and M80 motorways.

Formed in 1994, the Foo Fighters are an American rock band. They are known for their hits including Everlong, The Pretender, Learn to Fly, Best of You, My Hero, All My Life, Times Like These, and many more.

The group is made up of Dave Grohl, Nate Mendel, Pat Smear, Chris Shiflett, Rami Jaffee, and Josh Freese.

In a social media post, Traffic Scotland said: "Make sure you plan ahead when heading to Hampden Park tonight.

"We expect traffic to be heavier than normal on the M74, M77, M8, and M80.

"Please consider public transport options."

It comes after ScotRail issued a warning ahead of the concert last week.

The rail company is urging fans to allow extra time for travel as trains to and from the city centre are expected to be more popular than normal.

It is also advising concertgoers to plan their journeys and buy train tickets in advance.

On top of that, ScotRail has said extra services will be added to and from Glasgow Central for the gig.

The event will kick off at the football stadium at 5pm, however, the Foo Fighters are set to take the stage at 8pm.
