Some mu­si­cians can­cel con­certs af­ter Manch­ester blast

Cape Breton Post - - Arts/Entertainment -

NEW YORK — The sui­cide bomb­ing at an Ari­ana Grande con­cert in Manch­ester, Eng­land has shaken the mu­sic world, with some artists can­celling up­com­ing gigs and oth­ers plan­ning to go ahead as planned.

Blondie can­celled a Tues­day night con­cert in Lon­don “as a mark of re­spect” for the vic­tims at the Manch­ester Arena. Take That also can­celled a Tues­day night con­cert in Liver­pool and May 25-27 dates in Manch­ester.

It re­mained un­clear whether Grande would per­form in her next sched­uled show in Lon­don on Thurs­day. A per­son close to the sit­u­a­tion who spoke on con­di­tion of anonymity said her tour was not can­celled.

A num­ber of mu­sic acts with up­com­ing sum­mer gigs in Europe say they don’t plan to change their plans, in­clud­ing Guns N’ Roses, Phil Collins and Iron Maiden.
