7 superstar sold-out M&S Bank Arena concerts you can now get tickets for
3 years ago
2020 hasn’t given us much in the way of treats but now, just as it’s about to be over, it’s delivered something very special for music fans.
A limited number of the hottest tickets for concerts at the M&S Bank Arena have gone back on sale with rescheduled dates for next year.
That means there’s another chance to see some of the biggest stars who sold out every seat within hours of going on sale.
Huge names like Elton John, Diana Ross and Gary Barlow have all changed their dates to 2021. And, because some fans chose to get refunds rather than transfer, those seats or standing tickets are available to buy again.

Ben Davis at the Arena says the timing couldn’t be better, with Christmas on the way and things looking much more positive for venues.
“Because of Covid restrictions, a lot of absolute A-list artists had to move the dates for their shows and as a result, for one reason or another, some tickets were refunded,” he explains.
“When all of these shows first went on sale, the tickets are snapped up straight away. We couldn’t get tickets on sale quick enough to match demand and once they’ve sold out people don’t expect to have another opportunity to buy, but now they do.”
Ben says anyone looking for a surprise Christmas present could be in luck, and whatever happens in 2021 with the pandemic, it’s a no-lose situation for fans.
“With all the progress that’s been made we’re really excited to be able to get back to doing full-scale concerts.
“We’ve gone to a lot of effort as a venue to make sure we’re Covid secure and follow all the guidelines, so these concerts will only happen when it’s safe for them to do so, that’s part of our whole booking with confidence promise that we’re making to people.
“And there’s no risk when you’re buying – if the show does have to change date again then we’ll offer you the chance to move your ticket too because obviously most people won’t want to lose out or have to go through the process of rebooking. But if you want your money back because it moves to a date that doesn’t suit you or maybe you don’t feel comfortable coming because there is some uncertainty then you get your money back.
“If you, or whoever you’re buying for, love that artist and missed out on tickets, it’s an amazing second chance, just at a time when people need something to look forward to.”
Here are seven huge stars heading to Liverpool in 2021 that you can now buy tickets for …
Stormzy – April 23
Stormzy was originally due to bring his hugely-anticipated H.I.T.H. world tour to the Arena in September, but now he’s coming in April instead. A limited number of standing and seated tickets are now on sale again.
Genesis – April 24-25
These two dates were first planned for this September but now fans have another chance to see the legendary rock band’s three core members Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks reuniting with their The Last Domino? Tour in April.
Diana Ross – June 19
The Motown goddess that is Diana Ross should have been enjoying a summer night in Liverpool, off the back of an appearance on the Legends stage at Glastonbury, but her July 2020 date has now moved to June next year so fans can still see her incredible live show.
JLS – July 13-14
Fans of JLS absolutely blitzed the Arena’s ticket booking lines and website when they went on sale for November and December dates. These were like gold dust first time around, but now there’s two more chances to see Aston, JB, Marvin and Oritse because they’re coming back in July.
Dua Lipa – September 10
Dua Lipa’s was another show which sold out fast when it was originally scheduled to take place in May this year. That date got moved to January, but now she’s having a third try for Liverpool with a new date in September and limited standing and seated tickets are available.
Elton John – November 27-28
Still one of the most massive stars in the music business, tickets for Sir Elton fly out every time he tours and these, for his Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour, were some of the hottest ever. Dates for November this year have been moved to November 2021 and tickets are up for grabs again.
Gary Barlow – December 13
Gary Barlow should have been a little early summer treat, coming to Liverpool for a date this June. That’s now shifted to December 2021 so seeing Gary’s solo Music Played By Humans tour, accompanied by a full orchestra, can be a Christmas pressie instead!
