Manchester Arena cancels further shows


Manchester Arena has announced the cancellation of the Nashville In Concert event scheduled for this Saturday, June 17, following last month’s terror attack.

The arena remains closed while crime teams continue their investigations into the May 22 attack.

The Nashville show will now take place at Manchester’s O2 Apollo on the same date, across a matinee and evening performance. Ticketholders for the original arena date will be given a full refund and the chance to re-book tickets.

It follows the cancellation of concerts by Kiss and Kings Of Leon, scheduled for May 30 and June 9, respectively.

The venue is working with promoters about other upcoming concerts and will provide an update on when it will reopen “as soon as possible”. Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow is the next act due to play the arena on June 22.

Other upcoming shows include Celine Dion (June 25), Radiohead (July 4-5), Linkin Park (July 7) and Blink-182 (July 14).
