Let's Have a Rock n Roll Party

It is with great regret that we are forced to cancel the Lets Have A Rock n Roll Party performance at Manchester Arena. We had always aimed to produce the UK’s best rock n’ roll show, the biggest event with the very best acts. Sadly, due to production difficulties exacerbated by the time of year, we have fallen slightly short of our own expectations and are reluctant to put on a show that would not meet our high standards. You will receive a full refund to the card on which you made the original purchase.
