The concert series have pushed back their dates to September 2021 and June/July 2022.

Sounds Of The City - the two series of open air live shows due to take place in Leeds and Manchester this July - have rescheduled their dates due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.

Because of the government measures implemented to limit COVID-19's spread, the shows - which feature gigs by Foals, DMA'S, Lewis Capaldi and Kaiser Chiefs - will now either take place in September this year, or June and July 2022.

Full details of the changes are as follows:

Sounds Of The City - Castlefield Bowl, Manchester - New Dates

  • 22 September 2021: Kaiser Chiefs and Razorlight (was originally 2 July 2021)
