Take That to dedicate Hope song to Manchester Arena victims

Take That will be dedicating their song Hope to the victims of Monday night’s (22May17) Manchester, England bombing when the trio returns to the stage next week (beg29May17).
Gary Barlow and his bandmates rescheduled a handful of shows this week, including three gigs at the Manchester Arena – where the explosion cost 22 people their lives, as a mark of respect for those killed in the terror attack, but when they return to the live circuit in Liverpool on Friday (26May17), they plan to honour the dead with a musical tribute.
The singer has confirmed that the song from their latest album, Wonderland, will be sung in memory of those who lost their lives in the horrific attack.
Barlow has also urged fans to ”sing a little louder” at gigs: “We need to sing a little louder, reach a little higher and clap our hands a little harder #together (sic),” he tweeted on Wednesday (24May17).
Take That will also honour the victims of the bomb blast by staging a minute’s silence before their gig in Liverpool, which was rescheduled from Tuesday (23May17) in light of the tragedy.
The terror attack, which took place as Ariana Grande fans were leaving Manchester Arena after her show in the city, hit close to home for Take That – Howard Donald and Mark Owen are from the Greater Manchester area and Gary was born just outside the city.
