Ariana Grande Dangerous Woman Tour suspended until June 7

Ariana Grande's concerts at London's O2 Arena tonight and tomorrow (May 26) have been canceled following this week's tragedy at Manchester Arena.

On Monday (May 22), 22 people were killed and 59 injured when a suicide bomber detonated a device in the foyer of the venue as concert-goers were leaving. Children were among the dead.

The first victim of Monday's bombing was named as 18-year-old Georgina Callander, a massive fan of Grande.

Greater Manchester Police named the bomber as 22-year-old Salman Abedi and ISIS have since claimed responsibility.

Following the terrorist attack, the devastated singer posted her condolences on Twitter, saying: "Broken. from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don't have words."

It has been reported that the star has offered to pay for the funerals of those who lost their lives.

A statement has also been released saying that the Dangerous Woman Tour is to be suspended until June 7, as a mark of respect to those who lost their lives.

Along with the two canceled London dates, Grande has canceled her scheduled concerts in Belgium, Poland and Germany. The young pop star's management said:

"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 pop star and her mother flew back to her hometown in Florida on Tuesday, where she was met by her boyfriend Mac Miller

Live Nation has assured ticketholders that refunds will be granted at the point of purchase for all canceled shows.

The horrific attack has led to the UK terror threat being raised now to critical, which means it is now at the highest possible level and another attack may be imminent.
