Ariana Grande has returned to the United States hours after a suicide bomber killed 22 people at the pop singer’s concert in Manchester, England. She was photographed landing at an airport in her hometown of Boca Raton, Florida, and being met by family members. The pop star who has not been seen publicly since an explosion until now was unharmed but appeared shaken.
Meanwhile the singer has postponed the rest of her European tour, including her scheduled show in London on Thursday. Ariana will put gigs in the UK, Belgium, Poland, Germany and Switzerland on hold, though no official announcement has yet been made. The singer is deeply concerned about security. Hours after the tragedy, Ariana took to Twitter to say she had been left broken by the incident. “From the bottom of my heart, I am so so sorry. I don’t have words,” she said in the tweet.
Her manager Scooter Braun issued a statement following the incident, saying our hearts are broken by the tragedy. Following the incident, UK Prime Minister Theresa May paid tribute to the victims and families of those involved in the attack, which she confirmed is being treated by the police as an appalling terrorist attack.
British police have identified the man suspected of carrying out the massacre as 22-year-old Salman Abedi, who was born in Manchester to parents of Libyan origin. Islamic State claimed responsibility for what it called revenge against ‘Crusaders,’ but there appeared to be contradictions in its account of the operation.
Grande was performing in Manchester during the European leg of a tour to promote her third album, ‘Dangerous Woman,’ which also has her scheduled to perform in London, Belgium, Poland, Germany and Switzerland in the coming weeks.
Meanwhile some tweets warning of an attack at the Manchester arena hours before the bomb went off has surfaced and twitter didn’t flag it off for police attention. The account has however been suspended by twitter .
