This page lists all the shows at The Met which have been cancelled or rescheduled because of the coronavirus pandemic.

If you have booked for one of these events then you should by now have been contacted by us with an offer of a refund or tickets for a rescheduled show. If you haven’t yet heard anything, please get in touch at hello@themet.org.uk.

The Met is committed to supporting our staff, the artists we work with, and the people who regularly attend the venue during the difficult period ahead. We’re looking forward to reopening again soon and appreciate any support that our friends, members and ticket-buyers can provide.

Stay safe, stay home, and we’ll be shoulder to shoulder with you at a gig again soon.

Cancellation FAQs

The event I have tickets for isn’t listed above. Will it go ahead? 

The truth is we don’t know how long this period will last for. While we continue to plan for safe reopening, we believe that cancellations for shows will run into 2021; many artists are understandably choosing to rearrange whole tours already rather than wait. Some events we will remove from sale before we confirm cancellation or rescheduling.

Why isn’t my event listed above yet?

We’re working hard to reschedule as many of the upcoming gigs as possible. We’d like to have these new dates available for you before we contact you: it might mean waiting a few days longer while bands and venues work hard to arrange new dates.

Can I get a refund for a gig that isn’t yet listed above?

While we expect additional gigs to be cancelled, we’re asking our ticket-holders to help us by waiting until we contact them with details of what happens next to their event. If a gig listed above says ‘new date TBC’ then we’re working on confirming a new date and will contact ticket holders as soon as that is done. As The Met staff work remotely and the building is closed it will take a little longer than normal to process calls and enquiries.

What will happen when the event is cancelled?

We will email the ticket-buyer with details of either the cancellation or rescheduling of their show, and provide options including transferring your ticket to a new show or taking a full refund.

How will I be refunded?

If you choose to take a full or partial refund for your tickets you will be refunded via the same method or card that you paid with. Unfortunately this is the only method we can process refunds through. If you paid by cash then unfortunately we cannot handle or process cash at the moment: your ticket value will be converted to credit for future purchases at The Met in the first instance.

How can I contact you?

If you have a question about your purchase, or think we should have contacted you already about a cancelled show, please email hello@themet.org.uk or call 0161 761 2216 and leave a voicemail. We have limited access and capacity at the moment, so please bear with us if it takes longer than usual to respond to your enquiry.
