    Maybe it gets pushed back till after Lisbon and we get an extra show somewhere else  on the 25th that would be a result 
    play a non festival show in lisbon after nos alive.  Im sure it will have no problem selling out.


    they would sell out a non festival date at MEO Arena(20k people) easliy if they booked a show after NOS alive.

    hell i would go on a chance and say they would sell out the place where NOS alive is (passeio maritimo de alges)  if they booked a non festival date on july 15th.

    In the unlikely event Co-op Live don’t sort themselves out, there certainly won’t be an arena show at a different UK venue within this sort of short time frame, and certainly not at a rival venue.  They could maybe do a club show at a push, but way more likely it would just be cancelled, or best case it is rescheduled until next year, if PJ intend to return to Europe that quickly of course.

    Agreed you are correct but we can dream about an extra show since we lost one in London

    if london was sold out i could see them doing another london show but since there are still plenty of tickets left , i dont think so.

    a show on June 27th in a small venue in london would be amazing!!

    https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/article/2024/may/02/angry-fans-seek-co-op-live-compensation-after-third-opening-show-axed Here’s a good article on the situation. It doesn’t sound very promising at all but fingers crossed for everyone who has tickets. Here’s a sample:

     The venue’s manager admitted earlier this week that Co-op Live may still not be completed for another year.

    Tim Leiweke, chief executive of the venue’s manager, the US-based Oak View Group (OVG), told the Manchester Evening News that the operators were still working through a “600-point” list of issues to resolve. He added: “Finding skilled labour is a lot harder to do right now in the UK than it was before Brexit.”

    Cool. I will get in a few days of sightseeing and seeing friends in London before the show on the 29th. Then on the 30th I am off to Berlin for a week. I can't wait.

    AO Arena in Manchester already looking like it may be taking two shows this weekend.

    not sure how an extra London gig will help Northern fans. There are Cities outside of London.

    Also not sure how long the “opening season” is at 15k capacity

    I'd like to know that too. Because the reason I bought a ticket for this show is because I wanted to see Pearl Jam in front of 23,500 people. That's why I'm making this long journey. Not for a reduced capacity. What an indictment.

    If that's true and it's only 15k that's good news can be moved

    I wondered if they would act quickly and move over - with their 5 night run - if that had cancelled would have been a nightmare for fans. Hopefully PJ are looking into this option too.

    1 1/2 months out is not a long time to fix these issues.  I would hope that both sides, Co-op and PJ are looking at plan B and not going to wait the week of to cancel / postpone/ move the show.  Co-op has got to be losing a lot of $ these next couple of weeks.  As someone who is coming from the USA for this show, I really hope it is resolved sooner than later.  I don't have a lot of wiggle room in my schedule for a reschedule.

    Co-op, the venue naming sponsor, don't seem to be very happy and trying to distance themselves from this clusterf*ck. . 

    "Co-op is a sponsor and does not own or run the venue, and we have made it clear to Oak View Group, who are responsible for the building, that the impact on ticketholders must be addressed as a priority." - https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-manchester-68940344

    Really hope it goes ahead for those with tickets. Hopefully they can just move it to AO arena now a precedent has been set for it to be done. Co-Op must know it's going to be a while with how they've just let a a 5 night residency go without trying to reschedule etc.

    I don't think they've much choice with regard to letting that residency go. The act in question is due back there in June for another run of shows, which they obviously anticipate will happen. Fitting in the shows they're having to pull might not be possible with bookings already taken and bands schedules.

    They should decide in time. Then they might be able to sell a few more tickets. Provided the price is right.

    First proper gig went ahead last night successfully, and Black Keys will play today, so that’s good: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/articles/c2jddjy711vo

    Only 12k there. I think PJ and others also have reduced capacity for the first few months wonder how that will work, just less GA ?

    PJ has not sold the seats behind the stage (though I guess this may be due to the screen if they are using that in Europe)

    Didn't think it had behind stage? The reduced capacity seems to have been planned for the first 6 months for all shows and isn't because of the recent issues

    I haven't seen any artists selling tickets behind the stage at Co-op Live yet. Apart from Billie Eilish, who has her stage in the middle of the arena and won't be performing there until 2025. But regardless, only around 1,500 people can fit into the areas behind the stage. As the organizer himself has documented, the arena only runs at a reduced capacity during the opening season. Which is a great pity. I would have preferred a full arena.

    Yes it does. Not on sale for PJ though
