Save the date! Nearly all shows at M&S Bank Arena Liverpool have been rescheduled


It might be a little time before you get to see Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott at the M&S Bank Arena, and kick off has been delayed on A Question of Sport…

But the good news is that you’ll get to see your favourite bands and music stars, and all – or most – of the shows when restrictions are lifted.

It won’t be that long and, with nearly all the shows re-scheduled, you’ve already got another date to put in your diary to look forward to.

Keep up to date on all show cancellations, postponements and ticket refund details at the M&S Bank Arena website here.

So here’s the latest: 

Ultra 90s Dance Anthems Live

Original acts from the 90s like Cappella and Kelly Llorenna were going to take you back to the classic dance anthem era on April 3 but you’ll able to see them, and others, now on September 26.

Sweet Caroline

The tribute to Neil Diamond was due to go ahead on April 4, but that’s one of only a few dates that have been cancelled.

The Who

The band was due to appear on April 6 but is now on target for March 8, 2021. Members thanked fans for their patience and support.

And frontman Roger Daltry added: “This may be the last time we do a tour of this type so keep those tickets, as the shows will be fantastic.”

Rick Astley

Originally April 10 Rick – who’s announced a free concert later this year for NHS heroes – has now rolled over to October 22.

He said: “I’m absolutely gutted but in the times we are living in right now we have to think of everybody’s health and safety.”

2020 Gymnastics British Championships

Sadly the gynmnastics is another of the shows on which the curtain has come down this year and, though it was due to be held between April 16-19, it’s had to be cancelled.

Craig David

The tour is called Hold That Thought – and that’s just what you will have to do for the Babylon singer’s gig, moved from April 21 this year to April 11, 2021.


A Question of Sport

Sue Barker and captains Phil Tufnell and Matt Dawson will now be at the arena ready to test your -and their – sporting knowledge on March 5, 2021 (instead of April 24 this year).

Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott

No need to think it over but it will be a little time before this awesome pair come to the arena, postponing from April 25 to October 24.

And they say: “We wish you good health and safety over these coming months and hope to see you all fighting fit in the Autumn.”


McFly are the youngest band ever to have their debut album go straight to number one, beating The Beatles’ long-standing record – but we’ll forgive them! Tom, Danny, Harry and Dougie have postponed their April 26 gig to October 21 and, while sad at that news, they added: “The safety and health of our fans is our utmost priority. We can’t wait to see you in October, only six months away. Until then, keep yourselves safe and look after each other.”

Big Girls Don’t Cry

They’ll be celebrating the music of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons on October 31 now instead of May 2.

Andre Rieu

Andre and the Johann Strauss Orchestra have rescheduled from May 8 to September 25 and say they can’t wait to get back to the UK. Andre added: “I hope you will join us in September for a wonderful carefree evening full of music, dance and romance, and would like to thank you for waiting just a little longer. Please stay safe and healthy!”

Les Musicals

Jonathan Ansell and Jai McDowell have postponed their show from May 8 to May 3 next year, saying ‘Covid-19 is changing so many aspects of life for everyone in the entire world’. But the pair have sent their love to audiences, along with best wishes. Nice guys.

Peter Kay’s Dance for Life

The comedian’s fab fundraiser was supposed to be at the M&S Bank Arena on May 8 and 9. While the new date is still to be arranged Peter has said: “Obviously this is disappointing news but well and truly justified given the circumstances. We’ll get through this together and then we’ll all have a great big dance for life.

“Stay safe and look after yourselves and the people around you.”

The Night Sky Show

Astronomer Adrian West will now be presenting show on May 28, 2021, instead of May 9 – perhaps we’ll all be more interested and concerned in the world around – and above – us from now on?!

Strictly Come Dancing: The Professionals

The dancers will be sliding onto that polished dancefloor on May 11, 2021, instead of May 15 but, until then, they ask you to ‘please stay at home, look after yourselves and keeeeeeep dancing!’.

Radio City Hits Live

We were due to see some of the biggest acts on the planet on May 22 – but now we’ll have to wait until October 31…ooh, it might be hard to stand the suspense but it’ll be worth the wait.

Dua Lipa

Originally due to appear on May 29, she’ll be back Hotter than Hell, we bet, on January 6, 2021, with her Future Nostalgia tour.

British Weight Lifting Championships 2020

The Arena was due to host the Senior, Masters and Para Powerlifting competition over three days from June 27-28. A new date is yet to be arranged.

The Thunder Girls

The Thunder Girls were due to appear on October 27-31. That’s now been postponed but they’ll be expecting the biggest clap when the new date is finally confirmed!
