The Jonas Brothers have been announced as the first act to perform at the Co-op Live arena, and there are even more artist announcements expected in the coming weeks.

Organisers say that there are 25 events planned for the first month alone and have promised that there will be a diverse range of world-class acts on the program for the first three months.

Nick, Joe and Kevin will be performing on June 17, 2024, around a month after the £365million arena is expected to open its doors for the first time.

Tickets will go on general sale at 10am on Friday 4 August, but Co-op members will have access to presale tickets at 10am on Wednesday 2 August. Tickets will be available via the Coop Live website.

Once completed, the Co-op Live arena will be the largest music arena in the country. It recently let the public in for the first time as the final works were completed on the roof.

What do the organisers say?

Gary Roden, Executive Director & General Manager, Co-op Live, says: “We’re counting down the days until we can open the doors of this incredible new venue for Manchester and the UK. I’m thrilled that shortly after announcing our April 2024 opening date, we can reveal that Jonas Brothers will be part of our opening season of globally renowned artists, highlighting the strength and diversity across our forthcoming line-up of shows.”

The arena embodies Co-op’s principles, values and vision and we’re looking forward to seeing these brought to life through this unique partnership.

“Additionally, we’re excited to start sharing what we have in the pipeline for our members, which includes exclusive benefits such as first in line access to tickets, food and beverage discounts at Co-op concessions and hospitality experiences.”
