The Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre opened its doors for the first time in 1985 when its indoor entertainment venue was known as the AECC Arena. The arena has since undergone several name changes including the Press and Journal Arena, the GE Gas and Oil Arena and the BHGE Arena. The complex, which also houses various conference facilities and two hotels, is situated on the Bridge of Don amidst some of Scotland's most cherished heritage and scenery. Over 300,000 people visit the centre each year for its various exhibitions, meetings and seminars, sporting events and music and comedy shows. In 2016, construction began on a brand-new replacement centre close to the Aberdeen International Business Park and city's airport. The £185 million project, named The Event Complex Aberdeen, also features an increased capacity of 12,500, extra leisure and office facilities and a four-star hotel. AECC tickets can be both bought and sold on StubHub.
The AECC has welcomed a whole host of major names through its doors since its mid-1980s opening. Oasis performed there twice during their Britpop heyday, while Noel Gallagher has since returned with his High Flying Birds. Other notable acts to have performed there include hard rockers AC/DC, Iron Maiden and My Chemical Romance, pop favourites Katy Perry, Kylie Minogue and Rihanna, country legend Dolly Parton, chart-topping bands The Killers, Foo Fighters, Paramore and Fall Out Boy, and rappers Jay-Z and 50 Cent. But the AECC isn't just about music. Several stand-up comedians have graced its stage over the years including Russell Howard, Ricky Tomlinson, Peter Kay, Frankie Boyle and Michael McIntrye. The venue has also hosted several sporting events, including the Premier League Darts, the World Snooker Grand Prix Championship and various WWE spectaculars, while Torvill and Dean, Britain's Got Talent Live and Disney on Ice are just some of the general entertainment shows which are perfect for the whole family.
