Taylor Swift Pays Tribute to Manchester Attack Victims During 'Reputation Tour' Concert

"You've shown that you're never gonna let anyone forget about those victims", Swift told her audience during the show. "I guess I thought with time, and therapy, and writing, and pouring my heart out, and talking to my friends and family that it would be easier to talk about, but it's still so hard to find the words", she said. And I want to send my love and respect out to everybody who in their journey hasn't yet felt comfortable enough to come out and may you do that in your own time.

The 'Reputation' singer is began the United Kingdom leg of her world tour at the city's Etihad Stadium last night (June 8). "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." .

With the final heartfelt refrain of how honoured Taylor felt to perform for Manchester that night, the popular pop star burst into an acoustic version of her song Dancing with Our Hands Tied from her recent album, Reputation.
