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.
