Kings of Leon have been forced to cancel their Manchester Arena show this Friday

The venue is still closed after last month's terror attack.
Kings of Leon have been forced to cancel their show at Manchester Arena later this week.

The band were due to play on Friday, 9th May, but the venue is still closed following the terror attack at an Ariana Grande show last month.

In a statement, management explain: “Following last month’s tragic incident and the subsequent temporary closure of the main area outside the venue, Manchester Arena has no other option than to cancel this Friday’s Kings of Leon show.

“We apologise for not being able to stage this event and the inconvenience caused to our customers.

“The promoters have advised that the Sheffield Arena show on Saturday 10 June will go ahead as planned.

“Those that still want to see Kings of Leon and can make the Sheffield Arena show will be given the opportunity to re-book tickets with no booking fees (subject to availability).

“Ticketholders for Manchester’s show will be offered a full refund and fans should contact their point of purchase for further information.”
