Ariana Grande suspends Dangerous Woman tour
Ariana Grande’s Dangerous Woman tour has been suspended.
The singer has canceled seven shows through June 5 following the deadly blast at her concert in Manchester, England, Monday, her rep confirmed to Mashable.
The explosion killed 22 people, including teens and children, and dozens were injured when a bomb went off outside the Manchester Arena. Grande had just finished performing.
A rep confirmed that two scheduled London shows at the O2 arena on May 25 and 26 are canceled, as well as those in Belgium, Poland, Germany and Switzerland. On June 7 the pop star is scheduled to perform in Paris.
Grande’s rep said in a statement that the team decided to cancel shows so “we can further assess the situation and pay our proper respects to those lost.”
The statement continued: “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.”
Grande had returned home to Boca Raton, Florida, Tuesday to be with family.
