Concert Concert One Love Manchester Concert One Love Manchester Logo 2On 22 May 2017, an explosion occurred after Ariana Grande‘s Dangerous Woman concert at the Manchester Arena. Twenty-two were confirmed dead and nearly 60 people were injured in the determined terrorist attack. The Islamic State went on to claim the London Bridge Shooting on 3 June 2017. Nearly fifty people were injured in this attack and seven people have been confirmed dead. Ariana announced soon after the explosion that she would be holding a #OneLoveManchester Concert to raise funds for those injured in the terrorist attack.

The concert was held on 4 June 2017, proceeding despite the London Bridge Shooting. Ariana’s manager noted earlier on Sunday that the show would go on with a ‘greater purpose’ – And so it did. Talented artists from across the globe united for the concert but more importantly for the cause. Acts that performed include:

The survivors of the Manchester Arena bombing had a reserved spot near to the front of the stage. Marcus Mumford [front man of Mumford and Sons] opened the concert after a minute of silence was held in respect of those that had passed in both of the attacks. While emotions ran high, it was generally a positive concert encouraging hope and love among all during these trying times.

A clip was also included showing celebrities that ‘stand with Manchester’ but were unable to make the concert. Stevie Wonder was included in this clip but it didn’t stop there; he then proceeded to sing Love’s in need of love for the crowd. Perhaps a song that summed up the entire event was The Black Eyed Peas and Ariana Grande‘s performance of Where is the love? .

Nearly 60,000 people attended the concert and nearly 2 million pounds was raised.
