Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Time out - Reuters

Amer­i­can singer Ari­ana Grande has called off two Lon­don con­certs and five in Europe af­ter a sui­cide bombing killed 22 peo­ple and wounded 64 at her re­cent con­cert in Manch­ester, Eng­land.

Grande, who tweeted ear­lier this week that she was “bro­ken” by the Manch­ester at­tack, had been due to per­form on Thurs­day and Fri­day at Lon­don’s O2 arena as part of her Dan­ger­ous Woman tour. Apart from both shows, per­for­mances in Bel­gium, Poland, Ger­many and Switzer­land through June 5 also stand can­celled for now, her record la­bel said in a state­ment. “Due to the tragic events, Ari­ana Grande has been sus­pended un­til we can fur­ther as­sess the sit­u­a­tion and pay our proper re­spects to those lost,” the state­ment said. “Our way of life has once again been threat­ened but we’ll over­come this to­gether.” The con­cert pro­moter, too, said that ticket hold­ers will get re­funds.

Grande, 23, was un­harmed in the at­tack and was pho­tographed ar­riv­ing in Florida on Tues­day to be with fam­ily and friends.
