The sold out show featuring the Oasis songwriter and Manchester bands – Courteneers and Blossoms will all play alongside other acts such as Rick Astley, Poet – Tony Walsh – Pixie Lott and Louisa Johnson.

Councillor Sue Murphy told the official Manchester Arena website “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.

All profits from the show will go to the Manchester Memorial Fund.
