The newest addition to the Manchester music venue scene isn’t even open yet, and already there is plenty of anticipation. Co-op Live will open its doors to the public in spring 2024. 

Ahead of its opening, several acts have been announced as performing tour dates at the new venue. The first of these was The Jonas Brothers, who will perform in June 2024.  

Since then, plenty of big names have been confirmed as the venue looks to make its mark on the gig scene. The performances will continue to be announced in the coming months, but here’s the current state of play.
