The arena has been closed since May 22, when a terrorist bomb attack at an Ariana Grande concert left 22 people dead and dozens more injured.

The charity reopening event is set for September 9, and will be headlined by Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. Support acts include Rick Astley, The Courteeners, Blossoms and poet Tony Walsh. More acts are to be announced.

According to BBC News, all proceeds from the concert will go towards establishing a permanent memorial to the victims of the May 22 terrorist attack, which will be built by the new Manchester Memorial Fund.
