Glasgow has come second only to London in a list of top concert venues in the UK.
The city has eight venues in a top-100 list of places which held the most live performances in 2011.
Glasgow came behind London, which has 29 venues in the top 100.
Manchester was third with five venues, Birmingham fourth with four and Bristol fifth with three.
The top 100 list has been compiled by PRS for Music, the organisation that collects royalties for songwriters and composers.
More than 10,000 live music events in 2011 were analysed to see which venues held the most live performances.
The iconic King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut led the Glasgow venues, staging 249 musical events and coming in at number seven in the top 100 list.
It was followed closely behind by city's ABC, which held 216, and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, which held 168.
The other Glasgow venues include the Royal Concert Hall, City Halls, the SECC, Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum and the O2 Academy.
In total, Glasgow’s top eight venues together held 1133 concerts — attended by tens of thousands of people.
The top 100 venues in the UK put on 13,781 concerts last year.
Robert Ashcroft, chief executive of PRS for Music, said: "I am thrilled to see so many cultural centres featured in the analysis, from the newly opened Kings Place in London and The Sage in Gateshead to Glasgow’s concert halls.
"These venues have very diverse and exciting programmes that appeal to many different audiences.
"It is an enormous accomplishment to run a successful live music space and in spite of economic challenges, the British live music scene is still strong."
