Witnesses reported hearing a "huge bang" at the venue during an Ariana Grande gig. A spokesman for the US singer has confirmed she is okay.
Videos from inside the venue show fans running, while footage from outside captures emergency services arriving at the scene. 
Catherine Macfarlane, who was at the gig, told the Reuters news agency: "We were making our way out and when we were right by the door there was a massive explosion and everybody was screaming.

Some news sources are reporting that there was a loud bang rather than an explosion and people were injured in a panic driven stampede.

Reported 20 dead as of 7:30 our time.

Weird. Last night I watched a concert on MTV with Eagles of Death Metal. They were the band that was at that Paris nightclub in November 2015. Just f-ed up!

727 Blood everywhere is not a stampede. There were two explosions and Dobbs is already reporting Manchester officials are looking at it as a terror attack. Please quit spreading fake news. This is the very reason people should be careful what they're watching.

England has no-go zones meaning places where no one other than Muslims go because those areas are violent and the 'immigrants' have taken over the areas. One could say Michigan is becoming like one of these zones. England shouldn't be shocked about this event. The GD mayor of London is a Muslim whose more than ISIS friendly. They are seriously warped.

Barely hours had passed since reports emerged of an explosion at Manchester Arena when Boston-based journalist David Leavitt took to Twitter to write: 'Multiple confirmed fatalities at Manchester Arena. The last time I listened to Ariana Grande I almost died too.'
'Honestly, for over a year I thought Ariana Grande was something you ordered at Starbucks,' he continued, oblivious to the insensitivity of his first tweet.

One word-CLINTON that's how 9/11 happened! The FBI was aware for years that suspected terrorists were taking flight lessons but Clinton's
FBI director Freeh ignored the threat. Also the liberal immigration of Clinton allowed them in. He like obama and every single other democrat would sacrifice their own child so as not to offend a voter base. Democrats are very very very evil people.

I've heard the audience is young girls ages 6-20 years old. They're now targeting some of the most vulnerable, kids. Such disgusting POSs is what these people are. How can you target little kids like this? You'd have to be soulless assholes.

It's ironic that Grande was publicly critical of President Trump's refugee ban and her concert is the site for a major terror incident. I wonder if the Hollywood pimps will now see the danger. We will be told this was committed by a citizen of UK but very few UK citizens speak Farsi so well.

Why are they still calling it a "possible terror attack"? A bomb kills 19, what else would you call it?

Hope all those Trump-hating women and gays realize ISIS will do away with women and gays first! You people need to wake up. You're ignorant to a point where you're endangering your own lives.

Sorry to say, but all four of my grandparents are from different European countries. The United States had to bail Europe out in WWI then soon after in WWII. The leaders of Europe are again leading their people to disaster. Some of our own elected officials are trying the exact same suicidal policies here. Watch, Europe will continue its path to destruction and then ask us to save them again. How stupid are they? And how stupid are we? We know islam is murderous cult - all of them either do it or condone it - yet some of us strive to put all of us at risk. It's time to actively condemn and defeat not only the murderers but their apologists and sympathizers and enablers as well. Do you really think they are going to spare you when the chips are down? They want you dead just like they want me dead. Read their books, infidels. They mean business.

The situation, of course, is horrific.
Also horrific is the fact that (as reported) the majority of attendees were "girls between 6 and 18 years of age".
Really?
Google the lyrics of Ariana's newest song, "Everyday". I'd post them here but knowing Joe he wouldn't allow it. Watch the video. Who voluntarily buys the tickets and subjects their children to this?
Parents of these young girls...Are you crazy??

This terrible tragedy is direct result of Failed Policies of British Liberal Politicians. Yes, their citizens finally voted for Brexit and tight border security, but it was too little, too late, hords of Muslim Jihadis already snuck in the country. England, France and rest of Europe have been mostly ruled by Liberal Socialist Politicians who allowed Flood of Muslim Invasion to come in, under the disguise of "Refugees" and "Diversity". And the same Socialists and Globalists here in U.S. calling themselves Liberal Democrats, pushing for Open Borders, Influx of Unvetted "Refugees" and using Taxpayers $$$ to pay for it. They organize and finance these so called "protests" against President Trump and his Travel Ban on 6 Muslim countries, which were red flagged before Trump took office. So, message for those Slimey Crooked Democ-rats, who proclaim Islam is religion of peace, while the Muslims are killing anyone who they believe is infidel. The question is:" Who do you represent, the tax-paying citizens or your party leaders agendas? Do their words match their Voting Records? Folks it's time we the the People hold these politicians accountable, and demand for the Hypocrites to resign. Because our lives and our children lives depend on it.

Also 10:31 the failed policy of the democrat party which can (if they are honest but none are) would admit they are on the same level as Hitler and the Nazis. It was because of obama/clinton/rice and the democrat party as a whole and their meddling in both Egypt and Libya that both are now terrorist strongholds where people including Christians are getting slaughtered on a daily basis. obama admin made the mess and the slaughter. Just like the Nazis are the democrat party and if they deny their are either liars or clueless as to what is going on in the real world.
