Manchester City, United express condolences after explosion

All members of the Concert Promoters Association will continue to work with venues, Police, stewarding companies and the relevant authorities and it is our understanding that outside of the Manchester Arena and the Ariana Grande tour, all other planned concerts and events will go ahead, as advertised, unless ticketholders are directly advised to the contrary.

"All acts of terrorism are cowardly.but this attack stands out for its appalling sickening cowardice, deliberately targeting innocent, defenceless children and young people who should have been enjoying one of the most memorable nights of their lives", May said. People were just pushing and pushing and pushing. "It was just, it was chaos".

The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the Monday night carnage, which counted children as young as 8 among its victims and left 59 people wounded. We took her with us, tried to calm her down. "They don't want communities to live together in harmony but it is our job, not just politicians but everyone in this country, to ensure that this doesn't happen".

"She was with her friend Adam - Adam was found, he's in hospital but Olivia has not been found yet".

Grande's role as Cat Valentine on Nickelodeon's high school sitcom "Victorious" propelled her to teen idol status, starting in 2010.

CBS News reported that the alleged bomber traveled to the arena via train and detonated the bomb as people were leaving.

"I've called the police".

The 33-year-old said the blast "knocked him to the floor" but "instead of running away my gut instinct was to run back and try and help".

Naomi - real name Davis Heppenstall - tweeted to her 61,000 followers: "Sad to think I was LIVING at the Ariana concert while others were dying".

"We were making our way out and when we were right by the door there was a massive explosion and everybody was screaming", concertgoer Catherine Macfarlane told Reuters.

"When I got up I saw bodies lying on the ground".

"Our thoughts and prayers are with all the families and music fans caught up in the horrific attack in Manchester".

After a person tweeted: "That's not funny", the performer responded: "It wasn't supposed to be god I hate Twitter". "It happened near the box office at the entrance to the arena".

Police said they responded to reports of an explosion shortly after 10:35 the arena, which has a capacity for 21,000 people, and where the US singer had been performing to an audience that included many children. "I've called all the places, the hotels where people said that children have been taken and I've called the police", Charlotte Campbell tearfully told ITV television's Good Morning Britain breakfast show.

A publicist for Grande told The New York Times that the 23-year-old singer was "O.K". "It was very, very loud", she said, adding that her husband thought he had heard a second explosion.

McDonald broke down as she described a "devastating" scene, saying the venue was "full of children".

The BBC interviewed one witness who was waiting outside the arena to pick up his wife and daughter.

His daughter Abigail said: "I had to make sure I had my sister". Give her your phone and let her ring me. Everyone was running and crying.

Andy James had taken his nine-year-old brother to what was his first ever pop concert.

"There was a blast and then a flash of fire afterwards".
