Ariana Grande Puts Tour on Hold After 22 People Were Killed at Her Concert
Ariana Grande has allegedly postponed the remainder of the Dangerous Woman World Tour dates following the horrific terrorist attack at her concert last night in Manchester that left 22 dead and 59 injured. A source told TMZ that the 23-year-old singer “has decided for now to put the entire European tour on hold.”
The “Greedy” crooner was apparently “in hysterics” after the bombing and is “in no condition to perform” at any point in the near future.
from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don't have words.

Ari had just finished her set at around 10:30 p.m. local time when a man entered the lobby area of Manchester Arena and detonated a nail bomb as fans were exiting the venue. Georgina Callander, 18, and Saffie Rose Roussos, 8, are just two of the innocent lives lost in the attack, which ISIS has claimed responsibility.
The former Nickelodeon actress’ manager, Scooter Braun, released a statement on Twitter following the bombing:
“Tonight, out hearts are broken. Words cannot express our sorrow for the victims and families harmed in this senseless attack. We mourn the lives of children and loved ones taken by this cowardly act. We are thankful for the selfless service tonight of Manchester’s first responders, who rushed towards danger to help save lives. We ask all of you to hold the victims, their families and all those affected in your hearts and prayers.”
We cannot even begin to imagine what Ariana is feeling right now, and we hope she takes all the time she needs before getting back on stage.
Sadly, fans have been injured at other concerts in the past, too:
