Thousands of Hoops fans faced massive queues before the event kicked off at the sold-out 13,000 capacity arena as gun-toting cops guarded the entrances. The extra security was drafted in after the Manchester terror bombing2 that claimed the life of Scot Eilidh MacLeod, 14, 3and left several others injured, some of them seriously.

TOWN ON ALERT
Fans turning up at the bash faced having full body searches as security staff remained on high alert. However, Hoops supporters didn t seem to mind as many praised venue bosses for tightening security following the blast horror. Hoops fan Paul MacArthur, 50, said: There wasn t really many folk moaning about it the queue moved quite quickly.
There were a few grumbles from one or two people but I think that would have been totally different a few days ago.
One woman next to me in the queue said she would happily go through several security checks because she was so nervous about coming along after what happened in Manchester.
There wasn t a lot of negativity about it . People expected it.
What happened in Manchester is still so fresh and a lot of people were worried about coming to this event at the Hydro . It s one of the first high-profile concerts anywhere in Britain since the attack.
Fair play to the Hydro they got things moving quickly.
He added: It was surprising to see men and women being split into separate queues so they could be patted down by a member of staff of the same sex.
When we turned up and saw the queue we thought we were going to be in it for ages but there wasn t a huge delay . We never really stopped walking.
We got an earlier train than planned and we re glad we did because there was still loads of people behind us.
We were probably in the queue for 20 minutes . It could have been worse it could have been raining.

The sun was out and lots of folk were singing so the atmosphere was great. We told how security is under urgent review across Scotland4 after 22 people were killed and 59 left injured in the bomb blast at the Ariana Grande gig.
A spokesperson for the Scottish Event Campus said: The Scottish Event Campus is entering a very busy period with events in The SSE Hydro, The Armadillo and the SEC Centre over the next few days.

The safety of the public attending events on our Campus is paramount.
We have been liaising with the appropriate authorities including Police Scotland.
Security measures at the Campus have been enhanced including carrying out bag searches and full body searches.

Only small bags (35cm x 40cm) will be permitted into The SSE Hydro and The Armadillo.
Larger bags may be checked into the cloakroom in the SEC Centre and will be searched. They continued: At certain times, ticket checks will take place at entry points to the Campus with some access routes (such as the walkway to the station) restricted to ticket holders only.
These arrangements will mean that entry to the venues will take longer and therefore we would strongly encourage visitors to arrive early to allow time for access to the events. The move follows in the footsteps of other music venues in Scotland who have also increased security including Glasgow s O2 Academy.
