After weeks of uncertainty and a string of setbacks, Manchester’s long awaited Co-op Live arena finally opened its doors on Friday night with a stellar performance from Bury based band Elbow.

The headline act delighted audiences with a special performance to mark the release of their 10th studio album Audio Vertigo, and in the process made history as the first act to ever perform live at the new arena.

Yet while fans were loving every moment of it, the same couldn’t be said for the thousands of music and comedy fans that had sadly had their gigs rescheduled following the delayed opening of the venue and the collapse of a portion of the ventilation and air conditioning system from the ceiling earlier this month.

However, since the opening of the venue, organisers have confirmed that they don’t expect any more artists to reschedule or cancel their performances. So which gigs have been postponed and rescheduled so far? So far, a number of big name acts have been forced to postpone and reschedule their performances, with the most notable of these being comedian Peter Kay, who was the first star to face troubles with the arena’s delayed opening.
