New 2022 dates announced for Derby Arena shows

Due to the continuing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on indoor live performances, Derby LIVE have now announced that three shows, The Dreamboys, What’s Love Got To Do With It? and Jason Manford will not be going ahead as planned. All three shows have been postponed by their promoters to 2022.

The Dreamboys has been moved from 14 Jan 2021 to 28 May 2022. A celebration of the music of Tina Turner, What’s Love Got To Do With It?, was due to take place on 21 May 2021, but will now go ahead on 23 Jan 2022.

Jason Manford – Like Me has moved from 14 Oct 2021 to 30 Sep 2022. This is due to rescheduling issues caused by COVID impacting the early dates of the tour.
