Ariana Grande has issued a statement, confirming her decision to cancel suspend her ‘Dangerous Woman’ live tour.

On Monday night (22 May), a terrorist attack was carried out at the end of her concert in Manchester, killing 22 people and leaving more than 100 with serious injuries.

Reports quickly began circulating that she would be postponing the tour, including two live shows in London this week, which has now been confirmed to be the case.

Ariana has only briefly commented on the attacks, saying she’d been left “broken” by the horrifying events of Monday night, and has since returned home to the US to be with her family.

Scooter also posted a tribute to the victims in the wake of the events, and posted a string of tweets on Thursday (25 May), claiming he intends to “honour those” who were killed in the attacks by “living each day [to the] full”.

Meanwhile, Anastacia has claimed she intends to go ahead with a concert in the city as planned this weekend, to “stand up” for “everyone who is suffering right now”.
