Manchester’s highly-anticipated Co-op Live has announced today the first global act that will perform during its opening season – and it’s a pretty big one. The venue, which will become the UK’s largest and most sustainable live entertainment venue when complete next year, is set to welcome American pop stars, Jonas Brothers.
Nick Jonas, Joe Jonas and Kevin Jonas have announced today new dates for their global FIVE ALBUMS. ONE NIGHT. tour, which will see the trio perform across the likes of Australia and Europe during 2024, making a stop at Manchester. Jonas Brothers have sold over 20 million albums to date, with two Grammy Award nominations, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and 26 Billboard Hot 100 hits under their belts.
The band’s appearance at Manchester’s Co-op Live will form part of Jonas Brothers’ global tour, which will also head to London, Birmingham and Glasgow. Tickets for the new shows, including at Co-Op Live, which will take place on June 17, 2024, will go on general sale from Friday, August 4.
The announcement of the Jonas Brothers tour follows the release of their recent album The Album, which features the catchy single Waffle House. The Jonas Brothers rose to fame back in 2005 when they appeared on the Disney Channel Network, which later lead them to star in Disney Channel Original Movie Camp Rock alongside Demi Lovato, followed by their own Disney television series, Jonas.
The £365m arena will boast the largest floor space of any indoor venue and is on track to be completed to host its first events in April next year. Co-op Live recently reached a major milestone in its development, with a ceremony to celebrate the venue’s ‘topping out’, the final stage of the roof construction being completed.
Co-op Live is a joint venture between Oak View Group (OVG) and City Football Group, alongside Harry Styles who has privately invested in the development. Boasting itself as the UK’s only music-first arena, the 23,500-capacity venue has taken inspiration from conversations with Bruce Springsteen and venue investor, Harry Styles, and will feature a ‘smart bowl’ design.
Tickets for Jonas Brothers at Co-op Live will go on pre-sale at 10am on August 2, 2023 for Co-op members and general sale at 10am on August 4, 2023 here.
