Stars To Align At Ryder Cup Concert


29th August 2014

The Ryder Cup Concert is the curtain raiser for Scotland to truly ‘Welcome the World’ at the commencement of the Ryder Cup and will set the tone for the rest of the event week.

The concert takes place on Wednesday 24 September at The SSE Hydro in Glasgow and will celebrate all that is great about Scotland through music, entertainment and our warm Scottish hospitality.

With a flavour of The Brits meets The Proms, four of Scotland’s national arts bodies, Scottish Ballet, RSNO, National Theatre of Scotland and Scottish Opera will perform on the same bill for the first time alongside contemporary acts including Nile Rodgers, Jake Bugg, Texas, Amy Macdonald, Twin Atlantic, Nina Nesbitt, Eddi Reader and Midge Ure, creating an evening of unique collaboration and performance pieces.

The evening will see flashes of fashion, bespoke short films and never-before-seen live performances that will build the tension and excitement around The 2014 Ryder Cup. The audience will also be introduced to the European and USA Teams, meeting for the first time live on stage alongside captains, Paul McGinley and Tom Watson.

Businesses can let their visitors know about the Ryder Cup Concert during their stay and include messages in promotional materials e.g. on their website, social media sites such as Facebook or Twitter, or via e-newsletters.  Or why not go along yourself and experience this once in a lifetime extravaganza.

Tickets for the concert are available from, or by calling 08444 999 990 or 0844 395 4000.

The Ryder Cup will take place between 23-28 September at Gleneagles and will leave behind a lasting legacy for Scotland that is tangible, visible and carries with it long term benefit.
