Ariana Grande Manchester Concert to Go On As Planned in Wake of London Attacks
In the wake of the June 3 London attacks which left a reported seven people dead and nearly 50 injured across the city, Ariana Grande's One Love Manchester benefit concert will go on as planned today (Sunday, June 4).
On Sunday morning, Grande's manager Scooter Braun announced that the planned benefit concert would not be affected by the attacks, which have been billed as a terror incident.
"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 together and sing loudly," Braun wrote.
"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," he added. "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."
