“I entered the 12 Days of Christmas competition to win 12 VIP tickets to see Avenged Sevenfold, Disturbed, and In Flames at The SSE Hydro on whim when I saw it on Facebook. It had 90+ shares by the time I entered so I thought my chances of winning were very slim.

I couldn’t believe it when I received an email saying I had won the tickets! I was sure it was a mistake, I couldn’t believe my luck. Even when we got to the venue, I was expecting someone to send us away. 

I saw Avenged Sevenfold with Disturbed the last time they came to the SECC and it was one of the best gigs I’ve ever been to. I desperately wanted to see them live again, but couldn’t afford it so winning 12 VIP tickets was amazing!

We were welcomed into the Hydro Club and shown to our suite which had a bar, couches, seats right at the front of the box, and a spectacular view of the stage. When we first saw the room, we were celebrating like it was New Year’s Eve - we were so excited!  When someone came to take our drinks order it was great - everything was so easy.

The gig itself was incredible, we were so happy to be there knowing we probably won’t experience anything like it again. Avenged Sevenfold played all my favourites as well as songs from the new album. The encore with Bat Country, Unholy Confessions, and especially A Little Piece of Heaven, was incredible! We couldn’t have asked for a better night and I can’t thank SSE enough.”
