Ariana Grande has postponed her tour through June 5 following the terrorist attack on her concert in Manchester, England on Monday. Her label Republic Records, which is a subsidiary of the Universal Music Group, issued a brief statement to the press detailing the decision.
"Due to the tragic events in Manchester the Dangerous Woman tour with Ariana Grande has been suspended until we can further assess the situation and pay our proper respects to those lost," the statement reads. "The London O2 shows this week have been canceled as well as all shows thru June 5 in Switzerland. 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. Thank you."
Grande was playing her sixth European date on her Dangerous Woman tour when a suicide bomber attacked concert-goers as they were leaving her concert at Manchester Arena, killing 22 individuals and injuring at least 59. The suspect, a 22-year-old British-born national of Libyan descent name Salman Abedi, lived less than four miles from the arena.
