Kings of Leon's concert in Sheffield is set to go ahead this Saturday after Manchester Arena have cancelled their Friday performance.

Manchester Arena have said on their website that they have "no other option than to cancel the show" due to temporary closures of the main area outside the venue.

They said: "We apologise for not being able to stage this event and the inconvenience caused to our customers."

The Sheffield show is set to go ahead as planned on Saturday 10 June.

The cancellation comes two weeks after the terror attacks which killed 22 people at Ariana Grande's concert.

Manchester fans are being given the opportunity to re-book tickets for the Sheffield show without booking fees (subject to availability).

Ticketholders for the canceled performance will be offered a full refund, and fans should contact their point of purchase for more information.

Other events such as KISS and the WWE NXT wrestling show have also been cancelled at the Arena.
