Ariana, Blondie, and Others Cancel UK Tours After Manchester Attack
After the suicide bombing in one of Ariana Grande’s concerts, more and more artists are canceling their performances in Europe. Just recently, a lone suicide bomber detonated a bomb at Grande’s concert, killing 22 and injuring more than 100.
Among the artists who have canceled their performances were Blondie and Take That. Blondie was scheduled to have her performance in London on Tuesday while Take That was supposed to be performing from May 25-27 in Manchester.
Both Blondie and Take That said that they are canceling their performances “out of respect” for those who were killed and injured during the recent attack in Manchester.
Despite that, there are other musicians who are still eager to push through with their performances. Celine Dion will still be appearing according to her scheduled performances. She will be in Copenhagen, Stockholm, London, Paris, and at Manchester Arena as well.
Guns N’ Roses will also be performing in Europe. They have booked performances in Dublin, Lisbon, Madrid, Zurich, Munich, London and Paris. The band’s representative has stated that Guns N’ Roses has no plans on making changes to their schedule.
Phil Collins will also be playing at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on June 2 and at Royal Albert Hall in London starting on June 4. Phil Collins will be performing in London for 5 consecutive days. And Iron Maiden will also be at Cardiff on Wednesday and in London on the 27th and 28th of this month.
Despite the bombing incident at Manchester, some artists are still eager to perform with the hopes that security will be tighter and tough.
On the other hand, Ariana has returned to the US to take some much needed rest after the tragedy. Most of her fans are deeply saddened by what has happened and they are hoping that everything will be back to normal again soon.
