Take That opened their Friday night concert in Liverpool with a message for the people of Manchester. The band was supposed to play at Manchester Arena the day after the bombing that shook the city. However, the band, who are from Manchester, chose to postpone and move from the arena. During the opening, lead singer Gary Barlow shared that all the proceeds from the concert would go to the I Love Manchester Emergency Fund.

Take That asked people to post pictures on social media

Friday night was all about having fun and dancing. Barlow encouraged all the fans at the concert to sing and dance, making it clear that an attack wouldn’t stop people living their lives.

He also encouraged people to take videos and photos of the performances and to then put them on social media. The aim was to make sure the world knew that Manchester (and England as a whole) wouldn’t be shaken from the atrocities on Monday night.

After sharing that, he dedicated the performance to the victims of Manchester. The band will give all profits to the I Love Manchester Emergency Fund, set up to help the victims and families affected by the attack.

Take That will return to Manchester

As Ariana Grande promised to return to Manchester, Take That has also shared that they will return to their hometown for another performance. The band had to postpone three concerts because of the attack late on Monday night. There is a gap in their schedule to allow them to come for a special concert in June.

The large “super concert” will combine the three concerts that they had to postpone. Fans can attend on June 18 and it will be held at the Etihad.

Britain standing together as security level reduces

After police confirmed the attack on Monday was, in fact, a terrorist attack, British Prime Minister Theresa May increased the security level to the highest possible. It was reduced today back to ‘severe,’ where it has sat for a number of years. Even the attack on Westminster Bridge in March didn’t push for the security level to increase.

The attack has been devastating for families. It is the first time children have been the main focus on Western soil. Due to Ariana Grande focusing more on being strong and independent women, there are some who believe that women were the main targets. Some believe that the attack was against feminism.

Britain is banding together, making it clear that they will not be shaken. Concerts are now relatively back to normal and Take That already has a planned concert for the people of Manchester.
