Several shows scheduled at the Ovo Hydro in the coming weeks have been postponed, following restrictions to contain the spread of Omicron.

Yesterday Nicola Sturgeon announced a cap on the number of people allowed at indoor and outdoor public events like concerts, football matches and Hogmanay street parties.

The measure will come into effect on December 27 and will be in place for three weeks, with indoor standing events limited to 100 people, with 1 metre physical distancing.

Following the announcement, Ovo Hydro was forced to reschedule a number of gigs in late December and January.
