BLACKPINK recently completed their UK tour dates, and one of the concerts was at Manchester Arena.
They performed on 21st May and took the opportunity to pay their respects to the victims of the Manchester Arena bombing.
The bombing, which happened at an Ariana Grande concert on 22nd May 2017, killed 22 people and injured many more.
BLACKPINK shared a message on the big screen at their concert: “Blinks, thank you for being with us tonight. It’s a privilege to be performing here in Manchester, especially at this time. We send our love and prayers to the friends and families who fought through the hard times. We are here for you. #OneLoveManchester”
The group used the #OneLoveManchester which is connected to the One Love Manchester concert that was organised by Grande to celebrate those who lost their lives.
BLACKPINK changed the lyrics and choreography for some of their songs that might be upsetting to the audience. They also dedicated their song ‘Stay’ to the families involved.
