A date has been set for the reopening of the Manchester Arena, following last month's terror attack at an Ariana Grande concert. 

The venue has issued a statement explaining that it is working with promotors of the shows that were scheduled to take place in June, July and August. 

The statement reads;

'Following last month’s devastating attack on the city we are now working towards re-opening Manchester Arena in early September.

Whilst it was always our intention to honour our existing summer events, the damage caused to the main public area outside of the arena has left us with no other option than to remain closed until September.

We are currently working with the promoters of our June, July and August shows to find suitable solutions for events affected by this unprecedented closure. 

We would like to offer our heartfelt gratitude to all our customers and friends for their continued support and patience during this time and our ongoing thoughts and prayers remain with all those affected by the 22 May atrocity.'

Ariana Grande's One Love Manchester benefit gig has become the most watched TV event of 2017, and raised millions for the victims and victims' families.
