Mac Miller announced he's canceling his weekend gigs several days after the Manchester terror attack that took place at his girlfriend Ariana Grande's concert in the U.K. 

"Soundset and Sasquatch, I will not be performing this weekend. Thank you for understanding. I'll be back. Love always," the rapper tweeted Friday morning (May 26). Miller was scheduled to perform Saturday at Sasquatch Festival in George, Washington, and Sunday at Soundset Festival in St. Paul, Minnesota. 

Miller met with Grande earlier this week after the singer flew in to her native Boca Raton, Florida following the deadly bombing at Manchester Arena on Monday that left 22 dead and 59 injured. Grande tweeted Friday that she will return to Manchester for a benefit concert she is planning with her musician friends. Grande has postponed her tour dates in Europe through June 5. 

Miller's rep offered no further comment.
