Ariana Grande Suspends ‘Dangerous Woman’ Tour After Manchester Terror Attack
Pop star, Ariana Grande has put her Dangerous Woman tour on hold.
The Associated Press is reporting that Ariana Grande’s world tour as not been completely cancelled, but it remains unclear whether the Thursday show in London will take place.
A person close to the situation – who refused to reveal their name – reportedly said Grande and her team ‘are more focused on the victims at the moment, not the tour.’
ORIGINAL: Ariana Grande has suspended her world tour following last night’s explosion outside Manchester Arena, according to reports.
The pop singer was performing at the venue when a bomb went off after the concert. The death toll currently stands at 22 with 59 people injured.
TMZ reports that Grande will not perform in London this Thursday, putting scheduled performances in Belgium, Poland, Germany and Switzerland on hold. The Independent has contacted Grande’s camp for comment.
Organisers behind Grande’s London O2 Arena concerts are currently not sure whether the singer will perform.
Grande wrote on Twitter following the attack: “Broken. From the bottom of my heart, I am so so sorry. I don’t have words.”
The singer’s manager Scooter Braun wrote in a public statement: ”We mourn the lives of children and loved ones taken by this cowardly act… We ask all of you to hold the victims, their families, and all those affected in your hearts and prayers.”
Fellow musicians — including Harry Styles, Nicki Minaj, Taylor Swift, and Liam Gallagher — have paid tribute to those in Manchester affected by the attack.
Greater Manchester Police have confirmed the attack was carried out by a lone suicide bomber, chief constable Ian Hopkins saying they do not know if the bomber “acted alone or was part of a wider network”.
The attacker, who died at the scene, was carrying an improvised explosive device which he detonated.
