Hampden Park National Stadium is the heart of Scottish football. This venue is a home for The Scotland national football team and the place where the major football matches are hosted. However, the stadium has many other uses, such as hosting live music performances. Given that the capacity of the place is more than 50,000 seats, only world’s music legends, like The Rolling Stones
, Red Hot Chili Peppers
and Paul McCartney, give their shows here.
