Following Saturday night's terror attack in London (opens in new tab), many questioned whether Ariana Grande's tribute concert, One Love Manchester, would still go ahead as planned. According to the Manchester Evening News, "the security at tonight's event will be even tighter than originally planned," but it will still go ahead.

Grande's manager, Scooter Braun (opens in new tab), released a statement saying, "After the events last night in London, and those in Manchester just two weeks ago, we feel a sense of responsibility to honor those lost, injured, and affected."

He continued, "Today's One Love Manchester benefit concert will not only continue, but will do so with greater purpose."
