Legendary singer Michael Bublé is heading to Manchester this weekend, for two massive gigs at the AO Arena.

The Canadian crooner is bringing his Higher Tour across the UK in spring, with massive arena shows booked in over the coming weeks.

With 11 studio albums to his name, Michael Bublé has been named by Billboard as the third top Canadian artist of all time, beaten only by Celine Dion and Shania Twain.

He’s pretty well-known for his Christmas albums, which routinely get wheeled out every December, and released his latest record Higher in March last year.

Here’s everything you need to know about Michael Buble’s AO Arena gig this weekend.


Are there still Michael Buble tickets?

Yes! There’s still quite good availability for both nights at the AO Arena.

The cheapest tickets are £64.95 each, which will see you popped up in the upper tier of the seating in the huge arena.


Then there are other tickets priced at £87.50, and at £109.95.

You can see the latest availability and book your tickets at Ticketmaster here.

Who is supporting?

Okay, moving on…

What are the stage times?

The doors to the AO Arena will open at 6pm for both shows, on Friday and Saturday.


The show is expected to start at 7.30pm, but as always, this is subject to change.

Make sure to leave yourself plenty of time to get in, clear security and find your seat.
