The queue stretched further than we anticipated but as we stood at the end of the line we were immediately infused with the excitement of those ahead of us.
We had all the band’s albums and had played them endlessly as we travelled to the venue.
Within minutes more people walked past to the back of the line and I felt a bit sorry the late comers might miss the opening songs if the line didn’t move a bit faster.
As I thought this the lights went out. My ears rang. People cried. No, I thought, not to me.
- Like so many around the world, I have been moved by the senseless atrocity in Manchester. Despite the appalling loss of life, I have been encouraged by the reports of acts of kindness and compassion shown by people from all walks of life. This alone gives me reason to believe in the innate goodness of people.

Well written Michael!
Thank you kitty
Welcome Michael 🙂
I agree Michael.
Thanks, Di, some good from this appalling mess.
A lovely tribute to those who lost their lives in Manchester., Michael. I particularly like the way you stress the anticipation of a wonderful and long-awaited event before the atrocity destroyed it all. The kind and compassionate reactions of people from all over the world have been wonderful.
Another kind tribute to those affected by the events in Manchester this week. I hadn’t thought of it when the image went out, but I am deeply moved by your seeing a compassionate vehicle to express your solidarity with those who are moved to peace and love ❤ Thank you again for joining us!
When I saw the image its where my mind went….as a parent you can’t imagine the headache of knowing your child was involved in any way in the destruction.
I can’t imagine the terror parents and loved ones experienced — praying for Manchester as well ❤
Very well written 👌🏻
Thank you so much Scree 😀

I loved reading this account of the start of a concert and the feelings that went with and the sudden stop and change of events, such heartache unimaginable, well written Michael and my heart goes out to all who lost loved ones. But as you so beautifully ended your story, good comes out of even the worse situations, loved this ending.
