Manchester Arena re-opens following terror attack

Manchester Arena re-opened at the weekend for the first time following the devastating terror attack at an Ariana Grande concert on May 22nd.

The venue was filled with 21,000 fans of all ages who had come to listen to performances from local legends.

Held in aid of the Manchester Memorial Fund, the SMG Europe-promoted show was headlined by Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, with support from Courteeners, Blossoms, Bugzy Malone, Nadine Coyle, Rick Astley and Pixie Lott.

Manchester Arena boss James Allen said:

The concert was a phenomenal success and this was down to the commitment of everyone involved from the amazing artists and the dedicated arena teams, production and emergency services.

However, it was the people who attended on the night representing Manchester who embraced the spirit of the event and showed the strength that Manchester has and that the arena is truly a part of the Manchester community.
