Co-op Live Arena shows postponed after air conditioning unit falls from ceiling during soundcheck

An interesting on I saw in the news!

A brand new arena situated in Manchester, England, has had to postpone further shows due to a “venue-related technical issue”. The arena, Co-op Live, has a capacity of 23,500 people and is the largest in the UK.

… They couldn’t fix it in time and cancelled the Olivia Roderigo show and a few more :face_with_hand_over_mouth: Silly how the largest stadium owned by the richest owners, the air conditiong is falling down at soundcheck :laughing:

Imagine it’s a lot of revenue which has been lost from the disrupted opening week.

Joking aside it is a shame for all the people who planned to attend shows!
