The world was once again rocked after a bomb went off at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England on May 22. It’s difficult for artists who have concerts coming up to know what to do, but Brent Cobb, who is scheduled to perform at The Deaf Institute tonight in Manchester, and The Cadillac Three, who has a show coming up in the U.K., refuse to cancel.
In fact, both artists are taking the opportunity to show their friends and fans in the U.K. that they are standing with them.
On his Facebook page, Brent shared a post saying “While we do not want to be insensitive to your tragedy, we also refuse to let terrorism win. Our hearts break for your loss and we will be there with you tonight to mourn and help heal.”
The Cadillac Three, who will be in France and the U.K. in early June, responded to a young lady from Kent who pleaded, “Please don’t pull out of [Donington].” The trio simply replied, “We stand with y’all now and we will be there in a couple of weeks.”
Country artists continue to share their thoughts and prayers on social media, pledging their support to the victims and citizens of the Manchester bombing and to their peer, Ariana, who shared a heartbreaking post after the tragedy.
Currently, what is known about the incident is that a suicide bomber detonated the device in the closing minutes of the Ariana Grande concert. At this time, it is not confirmed that the bomber is affiliated with a terrorist network.
