Two days after 22 people were killed in a suicide bomb attack on her concert at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England, Ariana Grande has officially canceled her tour dates through the beginning of June, Variety reports. Grande was scheduled to perform in London tomorrow night and Friday, before crossing the English Channel for shows in Belgium, Poland, Germany, and Switzerland. Her management has released a statement which reads:

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 London O2 shows this week have been canceled, as well as all shows through 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 herself reportedly flew home to Florida on Tuesday. On Monday night, she tweeted out her condolences to victims, writing, “broken. from the bottom of my heart, I am so so sorry.
