  • Location / Manchester, England
  • Venue / Manchester Evening News Arena / M.E.N. Arena,

The first show by the band in this city since February 2003 on the X/Ten tour.

The second time at this venue.

The venue is located in the city centre close to the Manchester Victoria Station and the National Football Museum.

It was first opened in July 1995 as the NYNEX Arena.

From 1998 to 2011 it was known as the Manchester Evening News Arena.

From 2011 to 2013 it was called Manchester Arena and again from 2015 onwards.

From 2013 to 2015 it was called Phones 4u Arena

The venue reopened in September 2017 having closed in May after the terror attack at an Ariana Grande concert.

A slightly different setlist order sat this show with 'Armageddon It' returning to it's usual end of set spot.

The beginning of the set was also rearranged.

A decent audience filmed video and separate audio recording exists from this show.
