The new music arena is due to open in Summer 2019 with a budget of £333m. Aberdeen City Council have been constructing the building since July 2016 and are on track with completion with an almost 13,000 capacity. 

Inspired by the Hydro in Glasgow and the Liverpool Echo, it will offer shops and bars as well as food units and a 150-seat restaurant on the first floor. The public will have access to three different sides and there will be VIP boxes inside the venue.  

There will also be 7 conference rooms. The venue is flexible enough to hold up to 15,000 for special events such as outdoor performances. 

It will also include two hotels; the Hilton and ALOFT. 

The venue aims to boost tourism and to bring bigger artists and bands to perform in Aberdeen. Many Aberdonians will be pleased to know they won’t always need to travel to the likes of Glasgow and Edinburgh to see their favourite band. 

The first entertainment act confirmed to take the stage is comedian Russell Howard. Elton John has also been confirmed for 2020.
