The show is about to begin. But there are still some great opportunities to watch the most prestigious live event Glasgow and Scotland have ever seen.

At the Opening Ceremony of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, 40,000 spectators will be treated to a stunning night of entertainment from Scottish icon Rod Stewart, former Britain’s Got Talent finalist Susan Boyle and singer-songwriter Amy McDonald plus a few surprises!

With the world holding its breath, we will reintroduce ourselves to the Commonwealth family and show everyone what we’re made of. Most importantly, we will celebrate the commonality and shared qualities of the Commonwealth – the true spirit of unity and diversity.

For the first time in Games history, the Glasgow 2014 Opening Ceremony will feature a Commonwealth-wide fundraiser for children, thanks to our ground-breaking partnership with leading children’s organisation, UNICEF.

Stars of sport, stage and screen will appear in this unique global fundraising event tomorrow evening in aid of UNICEF to help Put Children First. Coming together on one night, we hope to save and change the lives of millions of children across the Commonwealth.

International singing superstar Nicole Scherzinger, cycling legend Sir Chris Hoy, cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar, footballing supremo Sir Alex Ferguson, Line of Duty actress Keeley Hawes and TV presenter and DJ Reggie Yates will appear as never seen before, in exclusive footage exploring different regions of the Commonwealth to witness UNICEF’s life-changing work.

Spectators, athletes and an expected one billion viewers from across the Commonwealth will all have the chance to play their part in the ceremony as we come together for one special moment, to Put Children First.

A limited amount of tickets for the Opening Ceremony are currently available from the Ticketing website, freephone Ticket Hotline on 0800 458 2014 and the George Square Ticket Office. Don’t miss your chance to be part of history!

The sun is shining and the excitement mounting.
We are having a family barbecue tonight and will be celebrating the opening of the games.

While you're enjoying yourself at your BBQ, Erngarth, think of me having to get up at 5am on a freezing Victorian morning to watch the ceremonies ...... :s_smile

Thought 20:00 means 20:00 for opening ceremony. Nope!! Loads of yakking by BBC presenters and applause in the background. Nothing else so far.

I heard on the radio earlier that it would start at 9.00. But it does seem silly to start a whole hour early :s_yes
