Matt Goss has been announced as the winner of the 2016 SSE Live Awards for The SSE Arena, Wembley.

The event came out on top after hundreds of thousands of fans voted for their favourite events of 2016 across all three of SSE’s sponsored entertainment venues; The SSE Arena, Wembley, The SSE Hydro and The SSE Arena, Belfast.

The top five acts at The SSE Arena, Wembley as voted for by fans, were:

Matt Goss
Armaan Malik Live in Concert
Culture Club

The winning show, which took place at the venue in October last year, featured the Bros frontman wowing his fans with a huge range of musical genres.

Matt Goss said: “When I was a kid I used to dream of playing Wembley. I'll never forget the first time I walked in to this incredible venue to actually play there and realise that dream. I'm in awe and humbled that 30 years later not only can I still play this world class venue, but because of the loyalty and love of my fans, I'm honoured to win the best show of 2016 at The SSE Arena, Wembley in the SSE Live Awards. Longevity is the true meaning of success, let's keep doing this!”

The SSE Live Awards, which took place throughout December and January across SSE’s three sponsored entertainment venues and online, have proved to be hugely popular with fans casting over three million votes over the two month period.

By logging on to, fans could vote for their favourite event that took place at any of the three SSE-sponsored venues throughout 2016.

Colin Banks, Head of Sponsorship & Reward for SSE, said: “We have been overwhelmed by the number of votes cast in this year’s SSE Live Awards.  What has really been apparent this year is the number of fans coming back to vote again and again as they’re so passionate about their favourite act.

“The fans have really made their voices heard and I would like to say a huge well done to Matt Goss, whose clearly passionate fans made him the deserved winner.”

The awards ran in SSE’s venues in Glasgow and Belfast too with Andy Murray Live, presented by SSE being confirmed winner at The SSE Hydro and Wet Wet Wet confirmed winners at The SSE Arena, Belfast.

The SSE Live Awards  were open to all, however SSE customers can sign up to SSE Reward at to purchase tickets up to 48 hours in advance of general sale and access lounges at the venues, as well as access exclusive ticketing offers and prizes.
