Ariana Grande postpones the Dangerous Woman Tour. A statement from tour promoters read: ‘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.
‘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 violence. Our way of life has once again been threatened but we will overcome this together. Thank you”.
Twenty-two people were killed and 119 injured when Salman Abedi, 22, detonated an improvised explosive device and targeted children minutes after Grande finished performing at Manchester Arena on Monday night.
The pop star, who sent a tweet saying she was ‘broken’ in the aftermath of the tragedy, returned to her hometown of Boca Raton in Florida on Tuesday.
She had been due to perform at the O2 in London yesterday and today but announced last night that she would be suspending her tour until June 5.
