Taylor Swift praises the "resilience" of the people of Manchester following the Manchester terror attack a year ago.

"You've shown that you will never let anyone forget about those victims". Taylor Swift addressed the thousands of Swifties sitting within the arena, showering them with praises for bearing through the traumatic event, while still maintaining their innocence, and not letting anyone boring the joy and excitement that rang within the blood of all Mancunians. "I just wanted to say, Manchester, is it such an honour to play for you tonight", she added.

Swift began her tribute: "Concerts are supposed to be about innocence, and about joy and about excitement, and what happened just over a year ago in this city was an attempt to steal that innocence".

"This is a really special night for me and everybody on this stage", she gushed.

"T$3 hinking of you all today and every day", she tweeted. "I cried 10 hundred times in the session writing it for you".

Taylor Swift performed her second and last show at Etihad Stadium on Saturday night as part of her Reputation world tour.

Now she has brought her breathless performance and breathtaking stage production across the Atlantic.

This is not the first time that the 28-year-old briefly paused her concert to deliver an important message to fans.

Taylor embarked on her stadium tour last month to a sell-out crowd in Glendale, Arizona.
