“Due to the tragic events in Manchester, the Dangerous Woman Tour with Ariana Grande has been suspended until we can further assess the situation and pay our proper respects to those lost,” a statement provided to Entertainment Weekly reads. “We ask at this time that we all continue to support the city of Manchester and all those families affected by this cowardice and senseless act of violence. Our way of life has once again been threatened but we will overcome this together.”
All scheduled shows through June 5th have been called, including back-to-back dates in London and gigs in Frankfurt and Zurich. Grande is expected to resume her Dangerous Woman Tour on June 7th in Paris.
Following the ISIS-led attack earlier this week, the 23-year-old pop star returned home to Boca Raton, Florida yesterday. She was accompanied by rapper boyfriend Mac Miller and her heroic mother, Joan. According to Grande’s manager, Scooter Braun, the musician is “not good at all” and “devastated” over what’s happened. She’s released only one brief statement via Twitter.
The Focus singer was also due to play in Belgium, Poland and Germany, before heading to Zurich but these will also not go ahead.
Following the terror attack – which took place at around 10.30pm as fans were leaving the venue – Ariana took to Twitter in the early hours of May 23rd saying she was ‘broken’ by the horrific event.
from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don’t have words.

The tributes continue to pour in for all those affected by this awful tragedy as the whole country stands together.
