“Always Live are an absolute asset to the club during concerts and other events at the Etihad Stadium.

They came into the organisation midway through the project and within a matter of days had built the required relationships, both internally & externally, and in challenging environments, to centrally manage the project to completion and success.”

- Dan Schofield

Over the years we’ve supported Manchester City Football Club by running the concert office, bridging the gap between venue, promoters and local authority. 

Namely, for every stadium concert, we develop the master checklist and schedule, strategic and operational concert management, including concert-only components such as promoter needs and planning, SAG meetings, last-mile management, welfare, and extended medical provision.

“Each concert provided its own challenges, bringing varying audience demographics and promoters to the venues.

Their all-around site management skills are up there with the best in the industry and I would highly recommend Always Live to deliver any event no matter how big or complex it may be.”
