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.
