The Courteeners Gig At The Emirates Old Trafford Next Weekend Goes Ahead As Planned

Lancashire Cricket Club has tonight announced the scheduled Courteeners concert at their Emirates Old Trafford ground will go ahead as planned despite the terrorist incident that claimed so far 22 lives and injured almost 60 at the MEN Arena.


The club statement said:

“Firstly, our thoughts are with the victims, the injured and the loved ones from last night’s incident. We have been working closely with the bands, the promoter, the Police and other authorities with regards to the planning for the Courteeners concert here on Saturday 27 May.

Following advice and guidance from all parties we can confirm that Saturday’s sell-out concert will be going ahead as planned. We would advise customers to allow extra time for travel and additional security checks at the stadium. Everyone entering the venue will be searched, and people are asked to not bring bags with them.

We are working closely with the Police over the coming days, and the event will be appropriately resourced, and we look forward to welcoming Courteeners fans to the stadium.”
