ARMED cops will be on guard to protect the 35,000 fans attending Eminem’s sold-out show at Glasgow’s Bellahouston Park.
Police Scotland will be deploying the specialist unit to the city park in Glasgow’s Southside tomorrow.
The force will also be closing several roads around the park in a bid to further safeguard concert-goers.
The decision comes in light of the terror attacks in Barcelona and Cambrils which killed 15 people and injured at least 130 people. The current terror threat in the UK also remains at severe.
The force, however, have been deploying armed officers to large-scale events across Scotland since May.
