Ariana Grande’s tour has not been canceled or postponed despite reports online, a person close to the situation, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the person was not allowed to publicly talk about the topic, said.
The person said that Grande and her team are more focused on the victims at the moment, not the tour.
It was unclear if Grande’s next schedule show — Thursday in London — would take place.
Concert promoters at London’s O2 Arena, where Ariana Grande is scheduled to perform Thursday and Friday, say they are in contact with the singer’s team about her next steps.
“We are shocked and deeply saddened by the terrible tragedy in Manchester. Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected and their families,” the arena said in a statement. “We are in contact with the promoters of Ariana Grande’s tour and will update as soon as we have further information regarding the planned dates at The O2.”
Grande herself has yet to tell fans whether she will continue her European tour following the deadly blast at her concert in Manchester.
Pop group Take That has postponed its planned three shows at the Manchester Arena Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
The band had already canceled its Tuesday show in nearby Liverpool following the deadly bomb attack at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester.
The band said it was postponing the Sunday performance “out of respect to all of the people and their families that were affected by the horrific incident last night.”
The band Blondie also canceled its Tuesday night concert in London “as a mark of respect for the victims of the terrible attack.”
Lead singer Debbie Harry tweeted that the Round Chapel date will be rescheduled.
The 23-year-old singer kicked off her “Dangerous Woman Tour” on February 3 in Phoenix, and played Kansas City’s Sprint Center on March 18.
