Rock legend Stevie Nicks announces huge Manchester gig at Co-op Live arena


Daisy Jackson Daisy Jackson - 18th March 2024

Stevie Nicks has just announced a massive gig in Manchester at the brand-new Co-op Live arena.

The rock legend, famed for her work with Fleetwood Mac as well as her impressive solo career, will be in town in summer.

The news follows her being announced as one of the headline acts at this year’s British Summer Time Hyde Park concert series.

These will Stevie Nicks’ first UK shows in almost seven years, and she’ll be one of the first rock acts to perform at Manchester’s shiny new Co-op Live arena.

The iconic singer, songwriter and storyteller is set to perform on Tuesday 9 July 2024, with tickets on sale today.


Tickets are not cheap (unsurprisingly) – you’re looking at £132.50 for the rear blocks, and around £233.50 for closer seats.

Stevie Nicks launched into the music industry as a duo with her then-boyfriend Lindsey Buckingham, who later went on to join Fleetwood Mac.


Her distinctive voice helped to make the group one of the most successful rock bands of all time.

She is also the first woman to have been inducted twice into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: first as a member of Fleetwood Mac and then as a solo artist in 2019, where she was inducted by Harry Styles.

Stevie Nicks has been named one of the greatest songwriters and singers of all time by Rolling Stone, who have also placed four of her songs into the list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time (Landslide, Rhiannon, Dreams, and Edge of Seventeen).


Fans are, understandably, very excited to have a performance from Stevie Nicks on the way to Manchester.

One person wrote, in a series of posts on X: “NOW I DONT HAVE TO TREK TO LONDON IM SO HAPPY. OH MY F*CKING GOD THANK YOU STEVIE.”

She’s also announced a gig in Glasgow for this summer.

Co-op Live has recently announced a partnership with Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) that will offer free tram and bus travel to and from the new area for all event ticket holders.

The groundbreaking initiative is the first of its kind in the UK, and will give all ticket-holders to events in the venue’s opening season from 20 April to 30 June 2024 free travel on Metrolink and new city centre shuttle buses.


Stevie Nicks will perform at the Co-op Live in Manchester on Tuesday 9 July 2024.

Tickets will be available through Co-op Member presale from 12pm on Wednesday 20 March 2024, and on general sale from 12pm on Friday 22 March 2024.
