Read more on the latest details coming in from the UK about the Ariana Grande concert…
Family and friends are now frantically worried about their loved ones who have not responded to calls or texts. Here are just a few from Twitter asking for anyone to help find them. We hope they are all OK. #GodSpeed
Fans should not have to worry about dying to see their favorite artist perform. This is utterly disgusting that someone or something felt they needed to bomb a Grande concert. Police say there are “confirmed fatalities” after an incident at an Ariana Grande concert.
Here is the latest reports that have come in per TMZ:
People connected with the show tell us they heard what sounded like an explosion in the rotunda area where merchandise is sold — in the venue but outside the seating area. There was an immediate stampede for the exits.

Law enforcement says at least 20 people are dead. A video posted on social media purportedly shows a flash in the arena (left side of above video), and then a boom is heard.
Greater Manchester Police say there are a “number of confirmed fatalities and others injured.” It’s unclear if the injuries are from the stampede or from a blast. Police have not confirmed an explosion.
One person caught the explosion while waiting for friends outside the concert.
