Seeing Ariana Grande after the Manchester terror attack

As part of my trip to Barcelona, my best friend and I had booked to see Ariana Grande’s ‘Dangerous Woman Tour’ because she’s a guilty pleasure of ours and she’s one of my biggest girl crushes! The concert in Barcelona was on 13th June, just 2 weeks after the Manchester terror attack.

When I woke to the news of the Manchester terror attack, I was completely shocked and it wasn’t until later that day that it occurred to me that the rest of the tour was more than likely to be cancelled. I was saddened by this thought; the thought that an act of terror had taken away so much joy, but knew that if it were me, I would never have the courage or strength to get back out on stage.

Once the news broke that Ariana was organising the ‘One Love’ concert to raise important funds for the people affected by the attack, I (and many others) felt an overwhelming feeling of admiration for Ariana as she went back to performing. It was then officially released that she would be continuing her tour, including performing in Barcelona!

When we arrived at the gorgeous Palau Sant Jordi (a beautiful building designed for the 1992 Olympics), we weren’t surprised to be met by an abundance of security and police; including helicopters, a road full of riot vans and armed officers. What I was surprised by, was a number of families and younger girls and boys attending. Not because they shouldn’t be there, but just the sheer mass of them; it dawned on me and my friend that these were the exact age group and type of people that were in Manchester, and it made my heart wrench a little.

When we got into the arena, there was an air of excitement and anticipation waiting for Ariana to blow us away with her incredible voice. She didn’t disappoint at all! Including her Dangerous Woman album, she played a couple of her classics and her beautiful rendition of ‘Over The Rainbow’, when the whole arena when silent and put their phone lights in the air. The whole show was just amazing!

My friend and I couldn’t stop talking about it and how amazing she was to honour the victims by not giving in to fear and putting on a great show for all her fans around the world. I will not hesitate to see her again!
