Ariana Grande has canceled her “Dangerous Woman Tour” in the wake of an apparent terrorist bombing at her concert on Monday, in which at least 19 people were killed. The pop star was slated to perform in London on Thursday, but the remaining concert dates have been suspended.

As Gossip Cop reported, the deadly incident took place as Grande concluded her show in Manchester late Monday. While the investigation is continuing, police say 19 people died and approximately 50 were injured. Officials are considering it was terrorist act unless evidence suggests otherwise. Unconfirmed reports say two nail bombs went off in a possible suicide bombing.

While Grande initially did not speak publicly in the wake of the horrifying tragedy, her rep confirmed she was safe. She later tweeted, “broken. from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don’t have words.” Scooter Braun, the singer’s manager, also took to social media to share a statement. “Tonight, our 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 love ones taken by this cowardly act,” he wrote.

Braun continued, “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.”

Grande’s “Dangerous Woman Tour” began in the U.S. in February. The European leg started earlier this month, and was slated to go through June, followed by concerts in Latin America, Asia and Australia. Dates were scheduled through September, but at this point, it’s too early to know if the tour will resume at all. Gossip Cop will continue to have updates as appropriate.
