Manchester Arena releases image of venue ahead of benefit concert

Manchester Arena’s City Room entrance, where a suicide bomber murdered 22 people at a concert this May, has been renovated and the arena is reopening on Saturday night, reports Josh Halliday in the Guardian.

Images of the new appearance of the entrance have been released by the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Peace Foundation, which has been assisting the more than 500 victims of the Manchester attack in order to prepare those attending the concert for the appearance of the entrance. Families of those killed, survivors and witnesses were given private time at the space yesterday.

The Manchester Arena will open with a We Are Manchester benefit concert that will raise money for a memorial to those killed in the attack. The concert is now sold out. Information about the concert’s security measures and the like can be found here.
