More than 2,000 volunteer performers will also take part in the ceremony, organizers confirmed.

They promised to bring the curtain down on an “amazing games” with “a night out not to be missed”.

Hampden Stadium will be transformed with more than 160 tonnes of staging, 3,000 props and 454 flags.

About 40,000 people are expected to attend the ceremony.

Kylie Minogue’s performance will represent the Games’ transfer to her native Australia in 2018.

The opening ceremony – featuring Tartan-clad performers, oversized Tunnock’s tea cakes, a giant kilt and Scottie dogs – was widely praised for its energy and humor.
