        Wow, didn't see that coming! Wasn't really expecting any Scottish shows ever again. And whilst its not quite the much missed Apollo, its not a bad venue (saw Kasabian there last year). Now the ticket sweat begins!

          Woke up this morning to get a fb link from a mate . Beyond excited . Totally didn’t see this coming . It’ll be my first trip to the Hydro as well , and it couldn’t be for  a more important artist ! 

          Another friend told me tickets start at £140 ?! 

          I’ll still be going but that’s almost 3 times what I paid for Hampden in 2010 😞

            All tickets for The Hydro show are £125 (plus £16.90 booking fee).

              Do we know whether a regular ticket may get us reasonably close seats? I was looking at VIP and I’m not sure how many rows they take up.

              Regardless, I am beyond excited to finally see Paul in my own city! Missed out on Hampden last time and had to travel to Liverpool in 2015 (and possibly will again this year) :)

                £16.90 booking fee - what a crock 🙄

                  Nothing will ever be like the Apollo! yes

                    Ticket prices have now been adjusted on The Hydro website and they range from £73.80 - £141.90 (plus postage fees).

                      That’s more like it ! Thanks for the info 👌

                        This is so awesome! I went to sleep last night expecting a London & Liverpool announcement & I wake up to a Glasgow announcement too. So surprised as Glasgow hasn't been rumoured at all since 2010, so happy! 

                          There will be a SSE Rewards pre-sale on July 11 at 10 AM:

                          By the way, are their tickets usually sent by mail, collected at the venue or printed at home?

                            Daily record today saying that the Hydros exclusive relationship with ticketmaster is toxic and only encourages touts :( 

                            a bit worrying ...

                              You can pick either or. Post is like an extra £2.50 whilst Print at Home is free

                                Thanks. I'm not sure they ship overseas, so do you think it's possible to collect  ticket at the venue?

                                  I think that they do post abroad but it's sent by UPS, I've never seen any option for a box office collection. So don't know how that gets arranged

                                    You have to be an SSE customer to take part in the pre-sale and as they supply UK utilities, anyone outside the UK will be unable to access the pre-sale.

                                      Was on before 10:00 with the SSE Reward to be instantly told that there's no tickets available! Furious doesn't even cover it

                                        Luckily my mum's cousin had American Express & managed to bag 2 front row tickets for £141 ea

                                          Was on the button at 10:00am and after 10 minutes of refreshing the page I got two tickets via SSE Rewards.

                                          Good seats by all accounts too, as it's pretty much the same seats we had for Roger Waters last week.

                                            Woke up at 5 AM (my local time) and got a floor seat! Beyond excited that perhaps I will finally hear Paul singing Mull Of Kintyre!

                                            There was no "box office collection" option, so I had to pay for Secure Courier delivery. Hopefully it will be delivered before my departure, otherwise I will have to ask them to print it again at the box office. Would Ticketmaster do that?
