Noel Gallagher to headline Manchester Arena reopening gig

Noel Gallagher is set to headline the reopening concert at the Manchester Arena.

The Arena has been closed ever since a suicide bomber attacked the concert venue, killing 22 people and injuring 60 more on May 22.

The venue will open its door once again on September 9.

Noel took to Twitter to share the news with fans.

'Saturday 9th of September, Manchester Arena will reopen with a special benefit concert to honour those impacted by May's atrocities.'

'The evening will feature NGHFBs and other top Manchester bands including Courteneers and Blossoms.'

All profits from the concert will raise money for the Manchester Memorial Fund, a charitable trust overseen by the Lord Mayor of Manchester which wil go towards establishing a permanent memorial for the victims of the 22nd My attack.'

Tickets for the benefit concert cost £25 and £30 plus booking fee and will go on sale at 9am on Thursday.
