Linkin Park & Blink-182’s shows at the Manchester Arena will not go ahead.
Following from the devastating terrorist attack there last month, the Arena will remain closed until September while it repairs from the damage that was caused.
The arena posted the following statement on their website:
“Following last month’s devastating attack on the city we are now working towards re-opening Manchester Arena in early September.
Whilst it was always our intention to honour our existing summer events, the damage caused to the main public area outside of the arena has left us with no other option than to remain closed until September.
We are currently working with the promoters of our June, July and August shows to find suitable solutions for events affected by this unprecedented closure.
We would like to offer our heartfelt gratitude to all our customers and friends for their continued support and patience during this time and our ongoing thoughts and prayers remain with all those affected by the 22 May atrocity.”
