With seating for 12,000, the Scottish Hydro Arena is the biggest purpose built indoor arena in the whole of Scotland and was designed by architects Foster and Partners at a cost of £125 million. It is used for concerts and other forms of entertainment, but also for sporting events, such as the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
Known as The Hydro, the venue is located at the Clyde Waterfront and, just like its neighbour the Clyde Auditorium, it was designed from the inside out. At 45m tall it stands out on the skyline of the City of Glasgow. There are numerous food outlets, restaurants and bars within the arena, and several VIP boxes, which can each hold up to 12 people. Around 140 events are held at The Hydro each year, international performers and bands, but also major stars of comedy. The venue sets to rival such renowned international venues as Madison Square Gardens in New York or The O2 in London.
The Scottish Hydro Arena website gives full details of events taking place at the arena Ė www.thehydro.com. Donít miss the opportunity to attend events at this fabulous venue, where the acoustics have been carefully studied and all 12,000 seats have good sightlines to the stage.
