Margaret Neilson, 57, Ann Marie Flannery, 56, and Hazel Hutton and Elma England, both 52, started queueing at 8am to be sure of first place at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow.
Margaret, from Penilee, Glasgow, said: "Rod's the man. It's my birthday today and about 40 years ago was the first time I saw him at the Apollo here in Glasgow for the first time. It's a bit of history that Rod is opening the Hydro. The first band to play a new venue is always the most important."
