Entertainment and Sporting Events

8,500 fervent fans from across Scotland are waiting for you! Put on a show like nowhere else in the North of Scotland!

A-list stars like Tom Jones, Gary Barlow, Bryan Adams, Oasis, Iron Maiden, Arctic Monkeys and Take That – and countless more – have enthralled audiences of thousands here. X-Factor Live, Britain’s Got Talent, Lord of the Dance all have taken to the stage here amid an atmosphere to enjoy. As have spectaculars like Disney on Ice – thanks to the construction of rinks especially for the occasion – and fantastic kids’ shows like Balamory and Disney Live.

We host everything, including ice shows, fashion shows and sporting events. Our expansive car parking areas have been used for circuses and motor events, as well as hosting exhibitors at our very biggest events, such as Offshore Europe.

AECC’s Oil & Gas Arena can hold up to 8, 500 for our truly big occasions, but the Boyd Orr Hall can accommodate 1, 700 for more intimate shows and concerts.
With all the back-up facilities and support to ensure everything’s more than all right on the night, AECC puts on a show to remember!
