Street of Dreams will now have its world premiere at the Manchester Arena on the rescheduled dates of May 9 and May 10.

Further performances will then follow at The O2 Dublin (May 18 and May 19), Belfast's Odyssey Arena (May 21 and May 22) and Newcastle's Metro Radio Arena (May 29 and May 30).

Kennedy commented: "I can guarantee this is a very big spectacular show, this is not something that's just been thrown together.

"Paul O'Grady is going to be taking us through 50 years of Coronation Street. We've got Julie Goodyear, Brian Capron who played Tricky Dickie, and Bill Roache. We've got a huge orchestra, it's live music, all original songs, dances - it's spectacular."
