We are missing the concert in Manchester tonight because of the weather & lack of toilets in the Arena. My daughter is 12 & a huge fan. She also has cerebral palsy & is in a wheelchair. The Arena have told us to leave their premises & walk across Manchester so Lucy can use the Changing Places toilet. Lucy requires a hoist & bench with extra space. Obviously due to the weather I’m not prepared to walk the streets of Manchester to use the toilet. We have 4 tickets that we can’t use for tonight & one very disappointed Lucy. 

Could Imagine Dragons influence arenas to bring in an accessible toilet for concerts. They are easy to hire & cost so little. It’s also difficult to get tickets because they allow so few spaces for people who can’t get into a regular seat. Can you be the first band to stand up for those who just require some extra support.

That is shocking. How can that be legal under the DDA? 

We have tickets but can’t get there due to weather and I am disappointed that it hasn’t been rescheduled.
