Slipknot will be playing at SSE Hydro this January 2020
- Event: Slipknot
- Date: 18th January
- Venue: SSE Hydro
January is usually a quiet time of year for gigs and concerts at the SSE Hydro, but one night in the middle of the month is definitely going to shake the cobwebs away as Iowa’s own touch down in Glasgow for what is guaranteed to be the loudest gig of the year (so far anyway).
Slipknot is playing at the SSE Hydro this January, and if you’re wondering where to stay when visiting Glasgow for the show, Fraser Suites Glasgow has all the information you need to know.
We may not have earplugs handy (make sure to bring some!) but we can help you get there in no time at all, as well as some hotspots for local music fans to check out.
Where is the Slipknot gig in Glasgow taking place?
It takes place at the SSE Hydro, the largest venue in the city. If you’ve come into town via the M8, you’ll have seen it when driving over the river.
How do I get to the SSE Hydro from Glasgow city centre?
Guests at Fraser Suites Glasgow are right around the corner from Argyle Street station. Hop on a train westbound, and the Exhibition Centre Station is only three stops away.
A single ticket averages £2.10. An off-peak return ticket averages £1.80.
On concert nights there can be a queue at Exhibition Centre station heading back into town, but Scotrail tends to have extra trains scheduled so there’s never too much of a wait.
Can I get a taxi from Fraser Suites Glasgow to the Hydro?
Yes. Taxis and rideshares can pick you up from the front door of Fraser Suites and take you straight to the Hydro. Taxis tend to go along Clyde St, giving you the chance to have a look at the Glasgow riverfront all lit up at night.
On gig nights, traffic on this road is busy as you approach the venue and it can be difficult to get a taxi to pick you up after the show.
If you’re set on walking back into town, you just stick by the river and it takes around 30 minutes.
Where can I go out after the show?
On nights like this, rock and metal fans can expect there to be pre-parties and after shows events at venues like Slouch, Cathouse, The Classic Grand and Rufus T Firefly.
For those who like to take it easy, and prefer somewhere close to their suite, the likes of BrewDog Merchant City, Maggie Mays and Super Bario (an arcade inspired bar!) provide some unique spots to check out just a stone’s throw from our front doors.
Can I get a deal on a hotel in Glasgow?
Fraser Suites can do you one better than a hotel deal. Guests who stay with us can stay in serviced accommodation that provides added luxury and much more than the average hotel room.
Our serviced studio apartments are ideal for anyone making a weekend of it in Glasgow, while couples or families coming to town can do no wrong with our two bedroom apartments that have you in the heart of Glasgow’s vibrant Merchant City.
