Extra security for Manchester Arena benefit concert

Watch: An emotional Noel Gallagher closes Manchester Arena concert

"We will have people who have bought a ticket because they want to be here". But it was Noel Gallagher and his band High Flying Birds that the audience were eagerly anticipating.

While another man wrote to Twitter: 'The BBC can broadcast the Proms but not do a single thing on We Are Manchester?' The singer Noel Gallagher headlined the We Are Manchester concert.

"The opening of the arena is a sign that our way of life will continue and that we will not allow those who perpetrate violent extremism to defeat us".

Poet Tony Walsh also read out a poignant tribute reciting "This is the Place".

The line-up also includes performances by The Courteeners, Blossoms and Rick Astley along with sets from Bugzy Malone, and Nadine Coyle.

Most acts decided not to refer to the atrocity directly, instead preferring to talk about the city's resilient spirit. "The last four months have been horrendous".

"We can not let terrorists win".

"The victims will never ever be forgotten, but we've got to move forward with love and not hate, and that's how we win", Kay told the crowd. When a photographer came on stage to take a picture of the crowd, Kane told them: "Let's show the world what defiance, happiness, positivity and strength look like".

As the head of one of the most recognisable publications in the world, Carter is a titan of journalism. As a cofounder of Spy , Carter often poked Trump in an attempt to expose him for his idiocy.

Comedian Peter Kay told the first crowd inside Manchester Arena since May's terror attack: "We can not let the terrorists win, the victims will never be forgotten".

"Believe you and me, this arena is still going to produce the best concerts and sports for years to come", he said.

Trauma specialists and mental health professionals were also on hand.

The Manchester music venue where a suicide bomber killed 22 people as they left an Ariana Grande concert in May will reopen on Saturday for the first time since the attack.

There was tight security, with backpacks banned and armed police patrolling both the exterior and the inside concourse.

Profits will go towards the establishment of a permanent memorial in Manchester for those who were sadly killed in the explosion on May 22.

The sold-out event set out to honour those affected by the attack, welcome back live entertainment to the venue and raise money for a permanent memorial for the victims.
