Following London Attack, Ariana Grande’s Manchester Concert Will Proceed With Additional Security
A day after the horrific terror attack in London, the big concert for the victims of the Manchester terror attack is still set to go on.
The bombing at Manchester Arena––where an Ariana Grande concert was taking place––happened just two weeks ago, with 23 killed and over 100 injured.
Grande recently visited some of the victims at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, meeting and taking pictures with young fans. After the attack yesterday, she tweeted this out:

Last week Grande announced the One Love Manchester benefit concert to raise money for the victims. Other artists like Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus are set to perform.
Grande’s manager Scooter Braun posted a statement on Twitter saying the concert will now go on “with greater purpose” after London:
