When was the OVO Hydro open?

The OVO Hydro was opened in September 2013 and has since gone on to host a number of events such as the 2014 MTV Europe Music Awards and the BBC Sports Personality of the Year event.

Construction for the arena began in February 2011. However, in 2013, flames were reported to be coming from the partially constructed building.

40 firefighters attended the blaze before it was determined that the fire was caused by ongoing welding work.

The venue was built by London-based architects Foster + Partners who are known for creating breathtaking structures like Hong Kong's Chep Lap Kok Airport and Glasgow's iconic Armadillo.
