Concerts by Celine Dion and Radiohead at Manchester Arena have been moved or postponed after last month’s attack.

Radiohead were due to play two dates at the venue on 4 and 5 July – but will now play a single night at Old Trafford cricket ground on 4 July instead.

Celine Dion’s shows on 25 June and 1 August have been postponed.

Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow, Key 103 Live and PAW Patrol Live! in June, July and August have all been cancelled. No reopening date has been announced.

The next events in the diary are Linkin Park on 7 July and Blink-182 on 14 July. The arena has not commented on the status of those shows but they must too be in doubt.
