08 Oct 2013

Some 80,000 people attended events in Glasgow's new SSE Hydro Arena in the first week it opened.

Rod Stewart was the first artist to take to the stage on the first night and such was the demand for tickets he performed three additional shows on the Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.

Jesus Christ Superstar,  Fleetwood Mac, Bruno Mars and Danny Elfmanan also contributed to the success of the first week.

John Langford, the Hydro's director of concerts, events and ticketing said: "We couldn't really have asked for a better opening week. Sell out shows. Over 80,000 through the doors. Glasgow has stepped onto the global stage.

"The SSE Hydro has changed the skyline and the live music stage of Glasgow - the rest of the year will be busy and it's not set to slow down."
