Works by sculptors and musicians are paying tribute to the Hillsborough victims, survivors and families.

There is a special art sculpture displayed at Liverpool John Lennon Airport in remembrance of the 96 people who lost their lives in the football stadium disaster in 1989 .

The sculpture is named ‘The Band of Life’ and was made to represent the bond between all the families and survivors and the people who the supporters who have helped throughout to keep the in memory the lives that were lost.

It was first revealed in 2014 at Anfield for the 25th anniversary of the tragedy. It was previously displayed at the Chapter House at Liverpool Cathedral and in the Liverpool Echo Arena atrium before being displayed at the airport.

The second tribute is by the rock band Manic Street Preachers, who have released a track called ‘Liverpool Revisited’, which is a tribute to both Liverpool and the victims of Hillsborough.

The bands album ‘Resistance Is Futile’, which contains the tribute song, will be available to listen to from the 13th April – just two days before the 29th anniversary of the disaster.
