Mariah Carey Cancels Brussels Concert – See Statement
Mariah Carey has canceled her upcoming Brussels concert, in the wake of this week’s terrorist attack. See the singer’s statement below.
The singer posted a statement on Facebook and Twitter telling her fans the Easter Sunday concert, which is also Carey’s 46th birthday, would not go on. “I love my fans in Brussels and at this time I am being advised to cancel my show for the safety of my fans, my band, crew and everyone involved with the tour,” the singer wrote. “I hope to see you soon and send my prayers and eternal love, laughter and light to my Lambs,” she went on.
Following Tuesday’s horrific terrorist attacks, Carey, along with scores of other celebrities shared their condolences for those killed and injured. “My thoughts and prayers are with the people of Belgium,” Carey tweeted earlier this week. As Gossip Cop reported, ISIS claimed responsibility for bombings at a Brussels airport and metro station that have left at least 30 people dead, and injured around 200 more.
Carey is currently on the European leg of her Sweet Sweet Fantasy tour, which kicked off in Scotland on March 15. Her tour will conclude in New Orleans on July 2. The shows mark the first time that the singer has toured Europe since 2003.
