Whilst Hampden Park is best know as the home of Scottish football, and the venue for all major Scottish international games, it is also a major concert venue that hosts some of the biggest bands in the world. In recent years it has played host to AC/DC, Bon Jovi, Take That, Robbie Williams, Beyonce and Ed Sheeran to name just a few.
Spectrum has been working with Hampden Park for over 10 years now and is proud to have worked at all of these major concerts providing, cleaning, waste management, project management, and soft FM services. In addition, we provide other specialist services when required such as seat replacement.
The concerts played by these supergroups and global superstars are spectacular events involving elaborate staging and phenomenal lighting shows, hardly surprising than that they attract 60,000+ people each night that they play, and with such widespread popularity they usually play multiple nights when they do come to Hampden Park Stadium.
Multiple night concerts provide the obvious challenge of clearing up after 60,000 people and having the stadium properly presented in less than 24 hours for the next set of adoring fans to enjoy the music in safety and comfort. Careful planning and professional management of our highly trained teams ensures we get the whole arena ready in a timely, efficient, and effective manner every time.
We work very closely with the tour organisers to ensure they have everything they need from us during the set-up period. More importantly, we liaise very closely with them during the break-down; often these bands and supergroups are scheduled to appear in another city/country the night following their final Hampden appearance. Spectrum works closely with the promoters and event organisers to ensure the quickest possible access for equipment vehicles so that they can be clear of the stadium at the earliest possible time.
Below is a short video with Brian Muir, Safety & Operations Manager at Hampden Park. Brian explains some of the work we do at Hampden Park and why he is happy to work with Spectrum.
