Boy band Take That have postpones three gigs at Manchester Arena this week following last night’s terrorist attack.
The Manchester band put the shows back after 22 people died when a lone suicide bomber detonated an improvised explosive device.
In a statement the band, currently comprising Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald, said: “Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.”
On its official Twitter account Manchester Arena tweeted: “Due to the tragic events in Manchester last night and the ongoing police investigation, the scheduled Take That concerts for Thursday 25, Friday 26 and Saturday 27 at Manchester Arena have been postponed.
“Further details will be released as soon as possible.”
The band postponed a show in Liverpool out of respect for people affected by the incident.
The decision came as the man responsible for the devastating terrorist attack on Manchester last night has been named by police.
Salman Abedi, 22, is the man Greater Manchester Police say was behind the attack which left 22 people dead and 120 injured.
The attack was carried out at Manchester Arena where thousands of people were watching an Ariana Grande concert.
This afternoon GMP Chief Constable Ian Hopkins released a statement naming Abedi.
