Band change Manchester date after protests from fans who can't get anyone to watch the kids...

M-People‘s show at Manchester Evening News Arena – originally set for New Year’s Eve – has been rescheduled after hordes of fans called to complain that they couldn’t go because of the lack of public transport and exorbitant fees for babysitters, where they were available at all.

In a brave acknowledgement of audience demographics, the band have moved the show to December 27. Tickets go on sale on October 1 and refunds will be issued for any bought for the original date from point of purchase.
