Robbie Williams dedicates song to terror attack victims

The singer and ex-Take That member began the show last night (June 2) by reminding the crowd, "we are Manchester and we are not fucking scared".

Robbie is also due to appear at the Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground in the city on Sunday (04.06.17), as he's joined the line up of the One Love Manchester benefit concert which aims to raise money for those affected by the tragedy - including over 50 people who were injured in the blast.

The singer dedicated his song Angels, to the 22 people killed and dozens injured, in the suicide bombing almost two weeks ago.

Proceeds from the concert will go towards the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, set up by Manchester City Council in partnership with the British Red Cross, to support grieving families and victims of the bombing.

The next star to perform was Robbie Williams, who has hit headlines for breaking down during his show in Manchester earlier this week.
