Scottish Event Campus

The Scottish Event Campus (SEC) features the SEC Centre - five interconnected exhibition and meeting spaces, the iconic 3,000 seat SEC Armadillo and our most recent addition, The SSE Hydro – a 13,000 capacity concert, sporting and special events arena.  With its infinite flexibility, the campus has gone from strength to strength and, with planned expansion and development, will continue to position Glasgow on the world stage.

'Mon the Biff

Another huge homecoming gig for the Kilmarnock trio and, even though they admitted to being slightly nervous, the ‘Ellipsis’ tour blew the roof off a sold-out SSE Hydro.  

Supported by one of Biffy’s favourite bands, American rock outfit Brand New opened the night with ‘Sowing Season’ and delivered a powerful set.

Biffy burst onto stage, kicking off their set with the fierce ‘Wolves of Winter’ followed by ‘Living is a Problem Because Everything Dies’.  Totalling over two hours in length, the impressively long set mixed the perfect amount of older belters such as ‘Bubbles’ with the newer ‘Friends and Enemies.’  It was a masterfully crafted set, much like the new album Ellipsis – high energy, full of fun and completely uninhibited.

Shirtless (standard) Simon Neil and bassist James Johnston pitted each side of the venue against each other, joking about who could sing better and bantering about while bounding around the stage.  Glasgow loves Biffy, it’s always an emotional one when they’re back on home turf and we can’t wait until they return.
