What Time Does Post Malone Go On Stage One of the music industry’s juggernauts in the realms of rap, R&B, and pop is about to make a seismic entrance in Manchester this week. Prepare to immerse in “Stay,” bid a reluctant farewell in “Goodbyes,” and bask in the glory of “Congratulations.” Yes, you guessed it right—none other than Post Malone himself is gracing the 0161 area code not for a single night, but for a thrilling two-night extravaganza. Brace yourself for an unparalleled party experience.
It’s been a couple of years since Post Malone last graced the UK with his presence, having played at the Reading Festival in 2022. And, if we rewind the clock a bit further, it’s been a whopping four years since the New York-born rapper set foot in Manchester. The stars have aligned for us Mancunians, as Posty is all set for not one, but two spectacular performances at the AO Arena on consecutive nights—Tuesday and Wednesday (May 16-17). With this in mind, let’s delve into the essentials you need to have in your arsenal.
Tickets for Post Malone at AO Arena Manchester
If you’re yearning to be a part of the Twelve Carat Tour, you’re in luck! There are still ample tickets up for grabs to catch Post Malone in action on either night in Manchester. And, if your stars align, you might even secure a spot for the second night (Wednesday).
Support Acts—Unveiling the Enigma
Post Malone’s entourage for his Manchester gigs is a two-fold delight. The American rap dynamo Rae Sremmurd—a duo that includes Swae Lee, who lent his magic to the hit track “Sunflower” for the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse movie—will be one of the opening acts. And there’s more in store: a surprise guest appearance from another artist, yet to be unveiled. The suspense is tantalizing, as the curtain remains drawn on who this mystery act might be. As per the whispers from the UK leg of the tour so far, information has been kept under wraps, but what we can confirm is that a supplementary supporting performer will be revealed shortly.
Post Malone Stage Times
The doors to the musical extravaganza will swing open at 6pm at the AO Arena. The first supporting act, whoever that might be, will grace the stage at 7pm. Following a lively half-hour set, the dynamic duo Rae Sremmurd will step into the spotlight at 8pm, keeping the tempo up until 8:40pm. A swift 20-minute interval will follow—ample time for you to stock up on refreshments and libations. And then, brace yourself for the main event: Posty himself igniting the stage. The performance is slated to enthrall until 10:30pm. Of course, an encore is always on the cards, and considering the treasure trove of hits he boasts, predicting the show-closer is a delightful conundrum.
