In an absolutely horrific attack last night, a suicide bomber exploded a nail bomb at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, killing at least 22 people, including children. Grande herself made a statement, saying that she was “so so sorry” and that she doesn’t “have words.” It’s hard to imagine how anyone could perform after something like that happening at a show, and now we know that Grande won’t perform. The rest of her planned tour is off.
Grande was reportedly “in hysterics” and “in no condition to perform” after last night’s attacks. There was talk of canceling her next show, scheduled for tomorrow night in London. But now TMZ is reporting that she’s suspended her entire European tour. She’s reportedly devastated emotionally, and she and her team are also worried about security at those shows.
In a statement to TMZ, Grande’s manager Scooter Braun says, “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.”
