Usher posted an image of the concert today (June 5) with the caption, “So happy to see that last night’s concert in Manchester proved that love always prevails. I would have loved to be there but It was my son’s first day at Camp Kudzu, one of the few summer camps for kids living with diabetes. This was an important day for him and for myself as a proud father.”

Usher was initially listed as being part of the bill, but this appearance actually took the form a recorded message that was played at the show.
