Take That have said they will postpone their scheduled performance at the Liverpool Echo tonight, as a mark of respect to the victims of the Manchester Arena attack.
There had been much speculation over whether tonight's show would go ahead such a short time after the horrific events of last night but the band have now confirmed they have chosen to postpone the show.
In a statement on their Facebook page, they wrote:
"Out of respect to all of the people and their families that were affected by the horrific incident last night at The Manchester Arena, we have decided to postpone our show tonight in Liverpool. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all."
Fans have backed their decision, tweeting their support to the band after they made the announcement.
Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson, said: "Our thoughts are with those affected by the devastating tragedy in Manchester. Our sympathies go out to everyone at this tragic time.
"We have been liaising with Take That and their promoter and they understandably wish to postpone tonight’s concert at Echo Arena Liverpool.
"We completely respect their decision which serves as a mark of respect to those who lost their lives and the people of Manchester."
Manchester Arena, where Take That were due to play on Thursday, remains closed for the 'foreseeable future'.
