Manchester Bombing

News is still coming in as I type this (around midnight last night), but it appears that 19 people are dead and 59 others are injured in Manchester tonight. Police suspect a terrorist attack, which happened at an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena.

Two explosions were reported, coming just after Grande’s show had ended.

This news site here seems to be live updating, so by morning there should be more information about this horrible event. My first thought was of the Eagles Of Death Metal concert in France, another event where a bombing took place.

Keep your eyes on your news feeds (or the link above, probably) as more information becomes available.

Our thoughts go out to all Mancunians in this troubling and terrible time.

  2. As a father of a teen girl that would have been at that show if we lived there, I can’t imagine the pain those parents would be going through.

    Dear terrorists: What good does killing teen girls do for your cause?

    • My lovely wife and I talked about that briefly before bed last night. Why that show? It’s just heartbreaking no matter where it happens, though. But yeah, as parents, it hits another level too doesn’t it. Ugh.


  3. Such a tragic event and so many children killed or hurt. It sickens me!

  4. Damn shame. Why do these idiots have to target music concerts? It makes me look forward to going to Download in 2 weeks that much more.

  5. More reports out.
    ISIL claims responsibility.
    23 year old suspect arrested.
    Bomb was filled with nuts and bolts and was set off in lobby as many people were leaving, to cause most casualties.

  6. It pisses me off when I read the comments in these news reports and they are full of Pro-Trump rhetoric and hatred towards millions of people that happen to be born a certain skin tone.

  10. Red Hot Chili Peppers are adding sniffing dogs and more cops to their security at upcoming concerts. I see this as the norm in 2017 and forward.

    My guess is it will up concert ticket prices as well.

  11. I just thought about something.

    Insurance. The insurance industry has gotten so ridiculous, it may become almost impossible for a club to get insured soon due to incidents like Manchester.


  12. Fans of Justin Bieber have been asking for him to cancel his British dates.
    What a difference it is to just a few weeks over the Kansas shaming.
    I wonder if ticket holders will stay home and eat the loss.


  13. KISS have cancelled their Manchester show for May 30.
