Manchester Arena, Manchester, England, United Kingdom
Manchester Arena will officially reopen on Saturday 9th of September with We Are Manchester – a special benefit concert to honour those impacted by May’s atrocities, and welcome back live entertainment fans to the Arena.
We Are Manchester will feature some of the city’s finest talent, alongside some of the biggest names in music. Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, Courteeners, Blossoms, Rick Astley and ‘Longfella’ poet Tony Walsh will perform to Manchester crowds along with a pre show DJ set from Clint Boon, with more acts to follow. Pixie Lott, Louisa Johnson and Manchester grime artist Bugzy Malone have also been added to the stellar line-up for the show.
All profits from the concert will raise money for the Manchester Memorial Fund, a charitable trust overseen by the Lord Mayor of Manchester which will go towards establishing a permanent memorial for the 22 May attack.More info Back to calendar
