Take That postpone Manchester Arena shows after bombing

Take That have postponed their three-night run at the Manchester, England venue targeted by a suicide bomber on Monday night (22May17).
The trio pulled the plug on its Tuesday night concert at the Echo Arena Liverpool “out of respect” to the victims of the explosion at an Ariana Grande concert on Monday, and now Gary Barlow and his bandmates have opted not to play at Manchester Arena at the end of the week (25-27May17).
The shows have been postponed until further notice.
No other concerts at the venue will be affected by the bombing, which occurred as Grande fans were leaving the arena at the end of the gig. That means rockers Kiss will be the first act to perform at the venue after the tragedy on 30 May (17).
“Manchester I am praying for you,” Kiss frontman Paul Stanley has written on Twitter. “God bless you and take care of each other now.”
Upcoming gigs at the Manchester Arena include shows featuring Celine Dion (25Jun17) and Lady Gaga (17Oct17).
Meanwhile, Ariana Grande has reportedly pulled the plug on the rest of her European tour following the tragedy and flown back home to Florida to spend time with family members.
