Peristiwa pengeboman konser Ariana Grande di Manchester kemarin (22/5) telah menggegerkan publik seantero dunia. Bom bunuh diri tersebut memakan 22 korban jiwa dan 59 lainnya luka-luka.

Segelintir musisi rock kenamaan pun dengan lugas turut mengungkapkan rasa belasungkawa mereka lewat media sosial. Diantara kalangan musisi yang ‘berkicau’ salah satunya adalah Noel Gallagher. Tak dapat disangkal ia adalah putra kebanggaan publik Manchester. Eks gitaris Oasis itu mengunggah sebuah foto di Instagram pribadinya bertuliskan simbol “I Love Manchester” tak lupa dengan caption “NO WORDS”.

Senada dengan sang kakak, Liam Gallagher pun ikut menghantarkan rasa duka mendalam lewat sebuah tweet di akun Twitter miliknya. Liam menuliskan penggalan caption berisi: “Sungguh terkejut dan sedih mendengar apa yang terjadi di MANCHESTER. Sampaikan salam cinta dan harapan ke semua keluarga korban LG x.”

Gitaris Queen, Brian May pun tak ikut ketinggalan dalam momen berkabung. Lewat Twitter pribadinya ia pun berkicau dengan memberikan dukungan agar tetap tak larut dalam kesedihan. “Kirimkan cinta kasih untuk Manchester. Kepada semua teman kami di sana dan semua yang berduka untuk keluarga mereka. Terkejut dan sedih. Bri.”

Di laman Facebook, solois berpengaruh sekaligus eks frontman The Smiths, Morrissey pun secara lugas menyesali aksi biadab yang terjadi di kampung halamannya itu. Ia menuliskan pernyataan secara terang-terangan ke media. Moz kecewa dengan perihal pengeboman di Manchester yang ironisnya bertepatan dengan hari ulang tahunnya tepat di tanggal 22 Mei kemarin. Selain itu dirinya pun mengecam keras aksi tersebut dengan mengalamatkan kekesalannya kepada segelintir politikus yang berkuasa di Inggris.

Berikut beberapa ungkapan belasungkawa dari jajaran musisi rock terhadap aksi pengeboman yang terjadi di Manchester:


I am so sick of reading headlines like this. We as a race, THE HUMAN RACE, have to do better than this. A music concert is supposed to be a place where people gather to forget their problems for a few hours, not somewhere to roll the dice with your life. At times like this, I think the only thing a normal person can do is try to be the best, most moral, human they can be- in our jaded era, I believe this is more necessary than ever. For instance, this evening after I read this headline, I ran into a very loose acquaintance at the grocery store & mentioned the news. This person joked "Maybe they did it because it was an Ariana Grande show." I was too shocked to even say anything- I utterly fail to find the humor in the fact that at least 19 people are dead & many more injured, whatever you may think of someone's music. I know nothing about Ariana Grande or any of her songs, but I can guarantee that people of many different races, religions, & beliefs were at that show for the same reason- to have a good time. Some of them won't go home tonight. This is not fucking funny to me. This sort of jaded, joking, mentality is evidence to me of the continual chipping away of our humanity by the pathetically low standards of our era. We are better than this, people. It's dehumanizing, just like the freakish & twisted beliefs that allowed this asshole terrorist to kill a bunch of people they didn't know. Everything you do & say has consequences, even if you don't believe that. Make sure you do your best to think & speak with a moral heart- maybe your kindness will prevent someone from going down a dark path- you never know who you may effect positively. My thoughts & prayers are with y'all in the U.K. tonight.
