Ariana Grande London Terror

Ariana Grande London Terror

Georgia Thompson, 14, from South Shields, is one of many Ariana Grande fans caught up in the Manchester bombing who have returned to the city tonight for the special One Love Manchester benefit concert. Confetti burst following the performance.

Taking to the stage at 8pm to an eruption of cheers from the crowd, the 23-year-old opened with Be Alright.

Grande wore a One Love Manchester sweatshirt - and numerous fans wore shirts bearing similar messages, or face paint saying "I heart MCR", or #WeStandTogether stickers. Justin Bieber and Coldplay are also scheduled to perform. And this love that you choose will give you strength and it's our greatest power ...

She said: "I thought about not coming after last night".

An estimated 60,000 people attended the One Manchester Concert.

Touching video footage has shown Manchester residents standing in a "guard of honour" along a road as survivors of the arena attack walk to the concert at Old Trafford. "When I see you all rallying together it was a sight to behold".

Reports are suggesting Ariana will close the show, with Take That being one of the first acts on stage before they head off to Birmingham for their own "Wonderland" gig. "I think the kind of love we're displaying is the medicine the world needs right now".

Evie's mum Karen said: 'She came in and she was just lovely, adorable and humble - and all over the girls.

The May 22 terror attack on Manchester Arena claimed 22 lives, including seven children, and injured dozens more. Grande and the other performers have decided not to be afraid in the face of such violence and destruction.

A third fan said that today's concert would be "really emotional".

Cyrus said they had sung the song together before, but had not done so in a while. The leader of rock band Mumford & Sons then sang Timshel while strumming his guitar.

Take That, who are from Manchester, followed Mumford with fun energy that the crowd danced to.

"Thanks to Ariana for inviting us tonight", said Take That singer Gary Barlow.

Robbie Williams changed the lyrics to his hit song "Strong" in support of the victims during his set, singing, "Manchester we're strong, we're still singing our songs".

"We're still singing our songs, our songs, our songs".

Grande's manager, Scooter Braun, on Sunday called the concert a "statement that hatred and fear will never win".

The One Love Manchester concert will take place at Emirates Old Trafford stadium in Manchester, which has a capacity of 50,000.
