"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."



Blink-182 and Linkin Park's shows at the Manchester Arena will not go ahead.

Due to the damage caused to the arena during the terror attack recently, the venue will have to remain closed until September. 

The venue have released a statement saying, "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."

Both bands are yet to announce if the shows will be relocated or rescheduled for another time, for more information head here.
