Take That have donated the proceeds from their rescheduled concert in Liverpool to the victims of the Manchester bombing.

The band played at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on Monday night but postponed Tuesday's show at the venue following the terror attack at the Manchester Arena.

Speaking at the rearranged gig on Friday night Gary Barlow apologised for the change of dates as he urged fans to "send good vibrations all around the world".

"Dance, sing, have a night to remember, please."

Band mate Mark Owen told fans: "We would like to dedicate tonight's performance to everyone who has been affected by the events that happened in Manchester last Monday night.

"All profits from tonight's concert will be going to the I Love Manchester emergency fund."

The band announced earlier on Friday they would be combining the three postponed Manchester concerts into one big event in June.

The group were due to perform at the Manchester Arena this week as part of their Wonderland Tour but they pulled the gigs after the attack at Ariana Grande's concert at the venue on Monday night.

They will now take to the stage at Manchester City's Etihad Stadium on June 18.
