The group have decided to call off their 'Wonderland' live show in light of recent events in Manchester.

Take That have postponed their planned performance at Liverpool's Echo Arena on Tuesday evening (23rd May) following the terror attack at Ariana Grande's show in Manchester.

The trio have decided to call off their 'Wonderland Live' concert "out of respect" to all of the victims and their families after 22 people were killed and more than 50 individuals were injured by an explosion at Manchester Arena.

In a statement, the band said: "Out of respect to all of the people and their families that were affected by the horrific incident last night at The Manchester Arena, we have decided to postpone our show tonight in Liverpool. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all."

A decision is yet to be made as to whether their three shows between May 25th and 27th will go ahead.

Gary, 46, sent his condolences to those caught up in the attack, responsibility for which has been claimed by ISIS.

He wrote on Twitter: "Sad, sad news from Manchester. Praying for all the victims and families involved."

Mark, 45, also tweeted: "So sad to hear the news from Manchester ... Prayers and thoughts go out to everyone involved .. Heartbreaking!!!! Love to you all M.O X (sic)"

And Howard, 49, was in complete shock that so many innocent people had lost their lives at a pop concert.

He tweeted: "I'm really hoping the casualties are not as many as it's displaying all over the news. Sending out love and strength to all #Manchesterarena ... Waking up to the realisation that so many innocent people are dead! So sad and heartbroken for all involved. Manchester I love you (sic)"
