Take That have donated the proceeds from their Liverpool gig to the victims of the Manchester terror attack.

On Monday night at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, a lone suicide bomber took the lives of 22 people and injured 59 others.

Take That played at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on Monday night, but postponed Tuesday’s show at the venue following the terror attack at the Manchester Arena.

At the gig on Friday night, Gary Barlow apologised for the change of dates as he urged fans to “send good vibrations all around the world”.

Mark Owen then told fans, “We would like to dedicate tonight’s performance to everyone who has been affected by the events that happened in Manchester last Monday night.

“All profits from tonight’s concert will be going to the I Love Manchester emergency fund.”

Howard Donald praised the spirit shown in the face of the terror attacks, telling fans, “As you know I was born and raised in Manchester. At this moment in time I’ve never been so proud to be a Mancunian.

“The spirit of Manchester, the spirit of the North West, the UK, the world over, it’s absolutely incredible. Thank you so much and thanks for coming everyone, enjoy the night please.”
