Niall Horan Says Playing at One Love Manchester Was One of the 'Most Surreal' Days

Niall Horan Says Playing at One Love Manchester Was One of the 'Most Surreal' Days

Niall Horan was one of the many famous performers at Ariana Grande‘s Manchester One Love Benefit concert.

Much like Ariana, who got a tattoo to mark the day, the experience had a profound effect on him.

“Playing the One Love Manchester concert was one of the most surreal days of my life,” he told Shortlist. “It was emotionally up and down. Backstage I was with Ariana Grande, and she was telling me stories of visiting the hospital, meeting families of the victims, and she was clearly really emotional about what was going to happen. It hit me that this was history being made, right before our eyes. Our generation’s Live 8.”

“Everywhere I looked, people were dancing and having a good laugh,” he continues. “Then I played ‘This Town’, and the mood changed. I caught a girl’s eyes in the crowd and she was just bawling her eyes out. During Justin Bieber‘s acoustic set, policemen were dancing with kids. I’d never seen anything like it.”

He was impressed and moved by how brave Manchester was in the aftermath of the deadly terrorist attack.

“You can’t let a terror attack alter your way of thinking. The concert was the same day as Michael Carrick‘s testimonial at Old Trafford. Seventy-five thousand people at Old Trafford, 200 yards down the road from this huge 50,000-strong crowd. This is the week after a terror attack. I walked through the crowd thinking, ‘These people aren’t scared. Something monstrous has happened, but they refuse to be scared by it.’ That was really powerful to experience.”

Ariana Grande Has Officially Been Named the First Honorary Citizen of Manchester

Ariana Grande Has Officially Been Named the First Honorary Citizen of Manchester

Manchester has its first honorary citizen in the form of pop singer Ariana Grande — and the city could not have chosen a more courageous woman to honor.

The Manchester City Council announced plans to make Ariana an honorary citizen last month, and now the move has been approved by an honorary council, E! News reports.

The 24-year-old “Dangerous Woman” singer organized the One Love Manchester Benefit concert following a bombing at her Manchester Arena concert in May, and in the process raised millions of dollars for the victims of the attack.

“It would have been understandable if [she] had never wanted to see this place again,” Council leader Richard Leese told council members ahead of the vote, “But she determined she would not perform again until she had returned to Manchester. In doing so, she brought comfort to thousands.”

Ari stood brave in the face of enormous tragedy, and for that, we will always admire her.

Sabrina Carpenter has nothing but lovely things to say about Ariana Grande.

If you remember, the 18-year-old singer was the opener for the Dangerous Woman Tour leg in Brazil.

“The most incredible thing that she could have ever done what she did was obviously the Manchester benefit concert and taking such a negative situation that was supposed to tear us apart and turned it into a positive and brought so many more people together, in the end,” Sab told TeenVogue.com. “And I think that’s exactly what we’re gonna do with music.”

She continued, “I think if anything, you know, it’s taught us to be stronger. It’s taught us to make music more because it actually does heal people. Like, it’s something that maybe we didn’t realize we need or we take it for granted. But, it’s one of those that at the end of the day it’s something that unifies us.”
