Stickeebra strongly condemns the bomb attack at the Manchester Arena on 22 May 2017 that resulted in numerous deaths and injuries of innocent people. We express our deepest condolences to the bereaved families, and wish the injured a swift recovery.
Officials report 22 are dead and more than 50 injured following explosions at Manchester Arena where an Ariana Grande concert was held on Monday night (May 22).
NBC reports "Multiple U.S. officials say U.K. authorities suspect Manchester incident was conducted by a suicide bomber." CBS has also reported that the explosions contained nails.
Billboard has confirmed Grande is "okay" with the singer's rep and that her team is further investigating what happened.

According to British Transport Police, an explosion took place within the Manchester Arena's foyer area at 10:30 p.m. local time. The foyer area is connected to the Manchester Victoria station adjacent to the venue and contains the arena's box office, as well as a McDonald's. Manchester Victoria station is Manchester's second largest train station.

Sending love to everyone involved. H
The explosion took place shortly after Grande finished her concert as fans exited the arena.
Speaking with Billboard, an eye witness recalled hearing a large bang outside the arena and then the PA speaker system announcing to evacuate and everyone screaming and running chaotically out of the arena. She said she saw people covered in blood as she left.
This story is so sad and so scary. Sending all my love to Manchester.— Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) May 23, 2017
Greater Manchester is the United Kingdom's second-most populous urban area with a population of 2.55 million.
Stickeebra stands united with the great city of Manchester today after this sickening attack. Our thoughts and prayers are with all those that have been affected by this tragedy, especially to our family, friends and fans in United Kingdom and Manchester.
