Ariana Grande Suspends Tour Following Manchester Terrorist Attack: ‘We Will Overcome This Together’

Posted on

Ariana Grande has put her world tour on hold following the terrorist attack after her Monday concert in Manchester.

“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 singer’s management said in a statement to PEOPLE. “The London 02 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,” the statement concluded.

According to a statement obtained by PEOPLE from Live Nation, “refunds will be granted to all ticketholders at the point of purchase” for her scheduled shows in London, Belgium, Poland, Switzerland and Germany.

Immediately following Grande’s Manchester concert Monday night,  22 people were killed and 59 were injured after a suicide bomber detonated an improvised explosive device. Local authorities have since identified Salman Abedi, 22, as a suspect, and ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack.

“Broken. From the bottom of my heart, I am so so sorry. I don’t have words,” Grande — who was physically unharmed — tweeted shortly afterwards.

On Tuesday, the distressed pop star, 23, and her mother, Joan, returned to her home in Boca Raton, Florida, where they were greeted by her boyfriend Mac Miller.

“It’s so, so sad,” a Grande source told PEOPLE Tuesday. “She loves her fans and is absolutely crushed and devastated as you can imagine. She can’t believe this happened. She just wants to be with her family and loved ones right now.”
