Manchester Arena: Noel Gallagher to headline reopening concert

Noel Gallagher will headline a special benefit concert to reopen the Manchester Arena next month.

Other acts set to perform include other North-West natives The Courteeners, Rick Astley and Blossoms. 

More acts are still to be announced for the arena reopening concert, which is titled We Are Manchester.

All profits will go towards establishing a permanent memorial to the victims, which will be built by the new Manchester Memorial Fund.

Tickets for the show, costing £25 and £30, will go on sale at 09:00 on Thursday 17 August.

The venue has been closed since the bomb attack at an Ariana Grande concert on May 22.
