Taylor Swift, Liam Gallagher, Courteeners, Harry Styles and more pay tribute
Taylor Swift, Liam Gallagher, Harry Styles, The Courteeners and many more have spoken out in tribute after 19 music fans were killed in a terror attack after an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester last night (Monday May 22).
An estimated 22 people were killed and 59 injured when an explosion happened in the foyer after the show at Manchester Arena. Many among them are believed to be youngsters and teenagers.
The incident has been confirmed as a terror attack and the lone bomber has since been named. Now, after Grande herself spoke out in honour of those who died to say that she was ‘broken, from the bottom of her heart‘, many more have come out to pay tribute.
Among those from the music world include Manchester natives Liam Gallagher, Johnny Marr, Liam Fray and Gary Barlow.
Gallagher wrote that he was “in total shock and absolutely devastated about what’s gone down in Manchester,” adding that he was “sending love and light to all the family’s involved.”
Smiths and solo icon Johnny Marr simply wrote “Manchester stands together”, while Courteeners’ frontman Liam Fray said that he was “absolutely stunned” at a “terrible, tragic night”.
