Gary Glitter Is BackBy: Zach Walton - January 19, 2012
Infamous glam rocker Gary Glitter has announced a comeback tour – via Twitter.
Gary Glitter took to Twitter using the handle @OfficialGlitter to announce his comeback tour to the UK. He has already amassed over 7,000 followers and promises more details to come soon. He claims to be a changed man and wants everybody to know that he’s now focused on his music, tour and autobiography.
As most people know, Glitter was charged with possession of child pornography in 1997 and then being listed as a sex offender in the UK in 1999 after downloading more images. He was arrested and charged with child molestation in Vietnam in 2005. He returned to the UK in 2008.
With this checkered past, the Twitter reaction to the tour was already set to be a ride. Let’s see, shall we:
