Rod Stewart - Rod Stewart Still Set For Glasgow Gig After Venue Fire

Rod Stewart remains on course to perform the opening show at a new venue in Scotland despite a major fire at the building.

The rocker has been booked as the first performer to play at the Hydro arena in Glasgow when it opens in September (13), but his show at the newly-constructed site was thrown into doubt after the venue's roof caught fire on 8 June (13).

However, organisers have now assured fans they are stepping up work on the building project to make sure Stewart can open the arena on time.

A statement reads, "Everyone involved in the project remains sharply focused on achieving our opening night concert with Rod Stewart on 30 September. Whilst there remains some residual risk, the... team will do all we can to support the construction team and be ready for the September opening. We will continue to provide regular updates to promoters, artist management and fans as we work to clear these issues."

Stewart has previously spoken of his pride after being chosen to open the arena on 30 September (13), saying: "I have been looking forward to this as I've watched The Hydro take shape. 2013 is a momentous year for me. I cannot wait to get back to Scotland and perform in front of a live audience at this spectacular venue."
