It’s fantastic to see the high calibre of artists and shows gracing the stages of our sponsored venues and we’re sure fans will want to show their appreciation and back their acts with voting now open. We’re also thrilled to have created lots of memorable SSE Reward moments for customers in 2019, from sold-out miracle ticketing at the likes of Liam Gallagher’s huge Glasgow date, to bringing Rod Stewart’s biggest Scottish fan face to face with her hero at the presentation of his special SSE Live Award at the end of last year. SSE truly is the more rewarding energy company and we can’t wait to see who the fans will reward with their votes vote to top this year’s Live Award polls.”
