Gerry Cinnamon breaks Scottish indoor crowd record

Glaswegian artist Gerry Cinnamon is scheduled to play in front of the largest indoor arena crowd ever in Scotland after his Aberdeen show completely sold out.

The gig at P&J Live Arena (pictured) will see 15,000 fans descend on the Scottish city on November 23, breaking the record for the biggest indoor show in the country.

The Aberdeen date is one of many of only two Scottish dates added to the singer’s UK and Ireland tour, which is completely sold out, including extra nights that were added in Glasgow and London.

Louise Stewart, head of entertainment, marketing and exhibitions at P&J Live, confirmed the show is now sold out at full standing capacity.

She said: “We couldn’t be happier that Gerry Cinnamon’s upcoming show at P&J Live has sold out, but to break the record for the biggest ever indoor show in Scotland is a fantastic achievement.”

Aberdeen’s new state-of-the-art arena, which is operated by SMG Europe, will open its doors for the first time to the public on August 10 with a free, ticketed event showcasing the venue and putting it to the test.

SMG already welcomes over three million visitors each year in the UK to 10 venues including, The Manchester Arena, First Direct Arena in Leeds, the Bridgewater Hall, Hull Venue and the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle.

Stewart continued: “This is definitely the start of an amazing journey for the venue and all before we even open our doors for the first time! Gerry’s gig will be a great night for all attending!”

Cinnamon said to expect nothing less than a “top class” show, he said: “Aberdeen is going to be the biggest ever indoor show in Scotland – that’ll be wild. They’ll all be wild to be honest.”
