Ariana Grande has suspended her world tour after the deadly explosion Monday outside of her concert in Manchester, England that left 22 people dead and dozens injured, TMZ reports.

Sources close to the singer told TMZ Monday night that the 23-year-old singer will not perform at her next show, scheduled for Thursday in London at the O2 Arena. She has put the rest of her European tour on hold as well, those sources said. (RELATED: Police: 19 Confirmed Dead After Explosion At Ariana Grande Concert In Manchester)

“broken. from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don’t have words,” Grande tweeted Monday.

 

Grande’s website shows no updates about her tour schedule. As of Tuesday morning, she is still set to perform in London, Belgium, Poland, Germany, Switzerland and France over the next several weeks.

Another TMZ report said that her team is very worried about security. “She’s [Grande] in no condition to perform,” one person said.

Authorities are currently investigating the explosion at the Manchester Arena as a “terrorist incident.” British Prime Minister Theresa May said that authorities have identified the apparent suicide bomber that detonated the explosive device outside the arena at the end of the concert.

“We were making our way out and when we were right by the door there was a massive explosion and everybody was screaming,” one concertgoer explained. “It was a huge explosion — you could feel it in your chest. It was chaotic. Everybody was running and screaming and just trying to get out.”

Grande was not hurt in the explosion.
