Noel Gallagher to Play First Show at Manchester Arena Since Terrorist Attacks

The Manchester Arena, the site of the May terrorist attack at an Ariana Grande concert, will reopen on September 9 with a special benefit concert from Noel Gallagher.

Gallagher will recruit other performers like the Courteeners, Blossoms, Rick Astley and Tony Walsh for a show that will raise money towards a permanent memorial to those lost in the attack.

In a statement, Manchester Councillor Sue Murphy said that in the wake of the attack “Manchester has reacted with love, solidarity and a determination to continue doing the things which make this such a vibrant city. We welcome the reopening of the arena.”
