Manchester Arena concerts postponed

Concerts held at Manchester Arena have been postponed after last month’s attack, which killed 22 people.

Radiohead were due to play two dates at the venue on 4–5 July, but have changed the event to 4 July at Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground.

Two Celine Dion shows set for 25 June and 1 August have been postponed with no new announcements about future dates.

Rainbow (22 June), Kew 103 Live (15 July), and Bros (22 August) have been cancelled. PAW Patrol Live! (19–20 August) has also been cancelled but promoters are currently looking to secure an alternative venue in order to still bring the show to the city of Manchester.

Manchester Arena’s next events are Linkin Park on 7 July and Blink-182 on 14 July, but no comments have been made regarding the status of the shows.

Fans with tickets to Radiohead’s arena shows have been told that they can either swap them for the new concert date or get a full refund.

In a statement posted by the BBC, the arena said the latest shows had been put off “following last month’s tragic incident and the subsequent temporary closure of the main area outside the venue”.
