The ribbon has been cut to mark the official opening of the new £333 mil TECA in Aberdeen.
With the P&J live at its heart, the landmark project, which is the largest new entertainment complex in Europe, includes two on-site hotels, three conference and exhibition halls and a VIP lounge.
The 15,000 thousand capacity venue will officially throw its doors open early next month when it plays host to the Offshore Europe conference, with a number of other events, including Rod Stewart, Michael Buble and Alice Cooper scheduled for later this year.

It’s thought the new facility could attract 4.5 mil extra visitors to Aberdeen every year, generating £113 mil in spending and creating around 352 new full-time jobs over the next 10 years.
Built by Aberdeen City Council alongside development partner Henry Boot Developments, the venue is part of the wider city centre master plan, which also includes the restoration of the Aberdeen Art Gallery, the redevelopment of Broad Street, the creation of Marischal Square and a visitor attraction in Provost Skene House.
