The OVO Hydro brings big name acts to Scotland, hosting a range of music, comedy, theatre and sporting events. We've seen international superstars such as Beyoncé, Prince, Fleetwood Mac and Take That visit, as well as record-breaking runs of shows by local sitcom Still Game.

As an SSE customer, you can get tickets up to 48 hours in advance for events at the OVO Hydro (subject to availability) by joining SSE Reward.

As well as the chance to buy tickets for some of the world's biggest acts before they go on general sale, customers also get free access to the venue's exclusive SSE Reward lounges and can use the SSE Reward VIP door to beat the queues.

Our story so far...

On 30 September 2013, Rod Stewart opened Glasgow's iconic building, The SSE Hydro. As Scotland's brand new home of live entertainment, it became one of the world’s top venues, hosting around 140 acts a year and over one million visitors.

In January 2020, SSE Energy Services became part of the OVO family. Together, we share the same goal of powering homes across Great Britain with clean, affordable energy.

In October 2021, the SSE Hydro became the OVO Hydro. The OVO Hydro is one of Scotland's largest entertainment venues, and 2022 is set to be one of the busiest years yet for live entertainment!
