Blackpink took their Manchester Arena concert as a way to pay tribute to the victims of the bombing attack two years ago.

According to Blinks who attended the show, the K-Pop girl group made adjustments on their setlist. They removed some choreos from their "Ddu-Du Ddu-Du" performance to avoid potential triggers to fans who might be experiencing trauma and changed the lyrics of "Whistle" from 'blow up' to 'glow up'. The girls also dedicated "Stay" to the victims' family and friends, saying "Blinks, thank you for being with us tonight. It's a privilege to be performing here in Manchester especially at this time. We send our love and prayers to the friends and families who fought through the hard times. We are here for you. #OneLoveManchester."

Manchester is set to mark the second anniversary of the tragedy that happened on May 23, 2017 during Ariana Grande's Dangerous Woman tour in the UK city.
