Ariana Grande has canceled multiple concerts — here are the affected tour dates
And now for sobering news that we all anticipated: Ariana Grande has canceled all concerts through at least June 5th, TMZ reports. The site confirmed the multiple concert cancellations with the singer’s management team, who reportedly said, “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.”
In the wake of the heartbreaking Manchester Arena bombing, which took place on Monday night after Grande’s concert wrapped, the 23-year-old singer returned to her home in Florida and tweeted out a heartfelt apology.
The official statement from Grande’s management team reads:
"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. The London O2 shows this week have been cancelled as well as all shows thru June 5 in Switzerland. 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. Thank you."
The specific Grande shows that have been canceled are her Thursday and Friday shows at London’s O2 Arena, in addition to the following: Belgium on May 28th; Poland on May 31st and June 1st; Germany on June 3rd, and Switzerland on June 5th. AEG Live, promoter of Grande’s “Dangerous Woman” tour, released a statement saying that “refunds will be granted to all ticketholders at the point of purchase.” No further info was provided about Grande’s remaining 28 concert dates.
As multiple outlets have reported, the horrifying Manchester bombing claimed the lives of 22 people and left more than 60 people injured, with many more still unaccounted for. The UK authorities are calling the concert attack an act of terror.
