Robbie Williams Breaks Down During Concert in Manchester


Less than two weeks after the terror attacks that rocked Manchester, England, Robbie Williams broke down while performing a concert there. On Friday night, 2nd of June, the British singer took the stage at the city’s Etihad Stadium, which is just down the road from Manchester Arena where a suicide bomber detonated a bomb on 22nd May, at Ariana Grande’s concert. The attack claimed the lives of 22 people and injured 100 more.

It was reported by onlookers that the singer appeared defiant after the tragedy as he told the crowd that they were not scared at all. However, it was stated that he was overcome with emotion after he belted out his song Let Me Entertain You and he struggled to contain himself for a moment or two. He also dedicated his song Angels to the victims of the attack and a fan made a video of the singer in which he is unable to continue singing thereby letting the audience finish reciting his lyrics.

One concert goer stated that they had been afraid about going after all that had occurred in the past week, but their fears were put at ease when they passed the security gates. The atmosphere at the venue was quite united as everyone was cheering and holding hands by the end. A rendition of Freedom, the hit song by George Michael, was also performed by Robbie, after the shocking death of the musician in December of last year.

There is a benefit concert to be held in Manchester on June 4th where Ariana Grande will be performing, along with Justin Bieber and Katy Perry, for raising money for the families of the victims of the Manchester attack. It is believed that Robbie Williams will join his former band Take That to perform at the venue.
