We Are Manchester - Manchester Arena to reopen with benefit concert
Manchester Arena will officially reopen on Saturday September 9th 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.

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 May 22nd attack.

Councillor Sue Murphy, deputy leader of Manchester City Council, said:
Those who perpetrate terrorist attacks want to divide us and stifle our freedoms. No one will ever forget the terrible events of 22 May but Manchester has reacted with love, solidarity and a determination to continue doing the things which make this such a vibrant city.

“We welcome the re-opening of the Arena, a major venue which attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors, as a powerful symbol of this defiant and resilient spirit. It is entirely fitting that the re-opening event should be a memorial fundraiser. Plans for the form and location of any permanent commemorations will be determined in liaison with the families of victims and others affected by the attack.


All customers will be required to go through additional security and screening upon arrival, no backpacks or bags larger than 35cm x 40cm x 19cm will be allowed inside the venue. Bag storage will not be provided.

Tickets, priced at £25 and £30 (plus booking fee), will go on sale at 9am on Thursday 17th August at www.eventim.co.uk or by calling 0844 847 8000 and at www.ticketmaster.co.uk or by calling 0844 844 0444.
