“We're Twenty One Pilots, here to tell you that we absolutely stand with you tonight. The peace and comfort that was taken away lives on tonight in this room through the spirit of live music,” Tyler Joseph says.
“Since the beginning of our journey, music venues have become a second home to us, we felt first hand the power of live music in the UK and in this city, Manchester. We know nothing's ever going to take that away. We stand with Manchester,” Josh Dun says.
And the video includes messages from artists all around the world, including Halsey, Demi Lovato and more.
“Music is not a place for fear. Music is a universal language the whole world speaks. It doesn’t matter what faith, what race, what class, what life experience,” Halsey says.
“When a bunch of people can get together and all relate to one thing, their love for music, a beautiful thing happens. And it’s that sense of communication that keeps music fans so loving and so unconditional. I stand with Manchester.”
