Uh oh…explosions have been reported in Manchester, England following an Ariana Grande concert. The venue, Manchester Arena, reported that the explosions took place outside the venue as people were leaving. And the NY Times is confirming some of what we know already…
The sound of at least one explosion thundered through a concert arena in Manchester, England, on Monday night just as a performance by the pop star Ariana Grande was ending. The police reported multiple deaths and injuries as panicked spectators including children screamed and fled.

The Guardian is reporting that 19 people have already been confirmed dead. Ugh, this seems to be exactly like the horrible attacks that happened on Paris a few years back at that Eagles of Death Metal concert.
Our thoughts are with the families affected and anyone in the UK that’s a regular concertgoer. So scary.
