Fire set back for the Scottish arena

A fire which broke out on the roof of the uncompleted venue, on the 8th of June, has put doubt on the arena’s scheduled opening date.

Many firefighters were drafted in from the local area to combat the blaze at what is set to be the biggest arena venue in Glasgow, which was due to open in September 2013.

Rod Stewart is still set to be the opening act at the 12,000 seat venue on the 30th of September, along with Jessie J, Peter Gabriel and Simple Minds.
