Just few hours, the UK was hit by yet another terrorist attack in London. According to reports, three men drove a vehicle towards London Bridge, hitting people, and they later on came out to start stabbing people. The horrible event claimed the life of seven people, with 48 people getting injured. Fortunately, the police were fast enough to get to the scene, and were able to kill the terrorists on their arrival.
This is coming just few weeks after the Manchester attack that occurred on May 22nd, at Ariana Grande’s concert, where a suicide bomber killed 22 people, with dozens of others left injured. Ariana was terrible shaken by the event, but still planned a concert in memory of her fans that died during the unfortunate event. The concert is set to take place in Manchester, and Ariana will perform, along with Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Take That, Coldplay, Niall Horan, Usher, Robbie Williams, Little Mix, the Black Eyed Peas, and Pharrell Williams.
The organisers of the Concert have concluded that anyone who attended her original Manchester concert can get in for free, and all proceeds will go to a fund set up for the people who were injured and the families of the people who were killed.
The concert was scheduled for tonight … but due to last night’s attack in London, there are possibilities that the concert won’t take place.
Here’s the statement from Ariana’s manager, Scooter Braunhe:
“After the events last night in London, and those in Manchester just two weeks ago, we feel a sense of responsibility to honor those lost, injured, and affected.
We plan to honor them with courage, bravery, and defiance in the face of fear. Today’s One Love Manchester benefit concert will not only continue, but will do so with greater purpose.
We must not be afraid and in tribute to all those affected here and around the world, we will bring our voices and sing loudly.
I am pleased to say we have the full support of Greater Manchester Police and the government and are assured the safety of all those attending is the highest priority.
All artists involved have been unwavering in their support this morning and are determined to carry on with the show.
We ask the strong city of Manchester and the world to join us in making the statement that hatred and fear will never win. Today we stand together. Thank you.”
On their part, Manchester police have said that they’ll be thoroughly searching everyone coming into the concert.
Ariana has been in Manchester for a few days, visiting her fans who were injured during the original attack. Last night, she tweeted that she was “praying for London,” and this morning she’s been promoting tonight’s show.
Here is what we know.
