Opened on the 13th September 2013 the ‘SSE Hydro’ is one of Scotland’s most popular live music venues. The venue itself is located next to the river Clyde just west of the city centre and has the capacity that can accommodate up to 13,000 spectators during performances.
From the outside the building itself can be seen clearly from most areas on Glasgow’s waterfront and boasts an impressive lighting display every evening, providing inspiration for photographers and passers-by alike.
Despite the venue’s short history it has already hosted a variety of high profile concert acts including Rod Stewart who performed on the opening night and has been selected to host the 20th MTV music awards. The SSE Hydro will also play a major role during the 2014 Common Wealth games which will see it seating crowds of Netball and Gymnastics enthusiasts all cheering their country to victory.
