Taylor Swift is currently bringing her Reputation Stadium tour to the U.K., and she took time out of her Manchester concert to honour the victims of last year’s terrorist bombing during Ariana Grande’s concert.
The singer, 28, paused to share heartfelt words before performing an acoustic performance of “Dancing with Our Hands Tied”.
“You’ve shown that you’re never gonna let anyone forget about those victims,” she told the crowd.
“You’ve shown that you have such incredible resilience to keep dancing and to keep the innocence and to keep the joy and to keep the joy,” she continued. “I just want to say, Manchester: It is such an honour to play for you tonight.”
Swift takes time out of each concert stop to talk about an important issue. Last week, the “Delicate” singer spoke about Pride Month and the LGBTQ community in Chicago.
“It’s very brave to be vulnerable about your feelings in any situation, but it’s even more brave to be honest about your feelings and who you love when you know that it might be met with adversity from society,” Swift told the crowd of 52,000.
On May 22, 2017 a suicide bomber killed 22 concertgoers and injured more than 500 during Ariana Grande’s show at the Manchester Arena.
