The countdown to the opening of Co-op Live is almost over, and ahead of its doors opening to the public- we got a sneak peak inside. The 23,500 capacity venue will welcome a wide variety of acts to its stage over the coming months. 

The venue is located near to the Etihad Campus, where it becomes the new neighbour of Manchester City FC. First up at Co-op Live is a double header of performances from Bolton comedian Peter Kay.
