The benefit gig, which will mark the reopening of Manchester Arena in September, will feature Noel Gallagher, Courteeners and Blossoms.

Fans have taken to Twitter after tickets for We Are Manchester sold out today.

Earlier this week it was announced that the Manchester Arena would officially reopen its doors following the tragic terror attack, which saw 22 killed and many more seriously injured when a suicide bomber attacked Ariana Grande's concert.

Following the news that the likes of Noel Gallagher, Blossoms and Courteeners were set to play the benefit gig, tickets appeared to sell out in mere minutes after going on sale today at 9am. 

Some fans were left disappointed, claiming the "sold out" sign appeared just after they went on sale.

However, some managed to hold their nerve and bag tickets in the end.

Unsurprisingly, fans were not happy to see that touts seemed to be selling off tickets for over double the price.

However, others took heart that the venue has measures in place, as photo ID will have to be provided by the head booker.

See their ID policy below:

The money raised for the show will go towards funding a "permanent memorial" for the Manchester Attack victims.

Meanwhile, it has been announced that the families of the victims are set to receive £250,000 each, after £18 million was raised for the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund.
