Message to all Tom Grennan ticket holders

Following discussions with the concert promoter after England’s game on Sunday evening, and now the England quarter-final fixture time and date has been confirmed, it was agreed that an adjustment of event timescales was needed to meet the needs around safety and comfort of both concert attenders and football supporters.

Due to the unpredictable nature of knockout football this adjustment also means allowing for the possibility of extra time and penalties, which affects the earliest time doors can be open for the concert. Please be assured that Tom Grennan will perform his full set as advertised, starting at a slightly later time (9.25pm latest) and finishing by 11pm. Every opportunity will be given to enable the support acts to perform, time permitting.

We appreciate that not everyone attending the concert will be a football fan and we apologise for the concerns and inconvenience the change in timings cause. Please be aware that our ticket terms and conditions state: ‘the organisers reserve the right to make alterations to the published performance’ and our website states ‘the concert will end at approximately 10.30pm’.

Millennium Square has a strong track record of screening major live events throughout the year and we are confident that both events can be hosted safely and efficiently within the adjusted timescales. Measures have been put in place to ensure the welfare of all customers attending both events with different entrances and exits and additional security staff will be deployed to ensure crowds are segregated and move easily in and around the square. The accessible gate (A) on Portland Crescent will remain solely for the use of accessible customers attending the concert and clear of any football fans leaving the venue.

Please note any concert ticket holder who also has ticket(s) for the football screening will be required to exit the venue at the end of the game to be re-admitted for the concert.

Thank you for your understanding.
