Mariah Carey Cancels Brussels Concert in Wake of Terrorist Bombing

“I am being advised to cancel my show for the safety of my fans, my band, crew and everyone involved with the tour,” singer says

Mariah Carey has canceled a planned concert in Brussels, Belgium, in the wake of the terrorist bombings that rocked the city earlier this week.

“I love my fans in Brussels and at this time I am being advised to cancel my show for the safety of my fans, my band, crew and everyone involved with the tour,” Carey tweeted Friday. “I hope to see you soon and send my prayers and eternal love, laughter and light to my Lambs.”

Brussels was rocked Tuesday morning by a series of terrorism attacks, including two explosions at the airport and one at a subway station in the Belgian capital that killed 31 people and injured hundreds of others.

Brussels officials have since raised the terror threat level to four, the highest level, while security was heightened throughout Europe in the wake of the attacks.

Photographs posted on social media captured the aftermath of the explosions, with shattered glass and roof tiles scattered at the airport terminal and other signs of destruction. Other images showed passengers covered in blood and soot.

Earlier this month, E! announced that Carey would be the subject of a new reality series called “Mariah’s World.” The show will follow Carey on her tour of U.K., Europe and Africa, all while planning her upcoming wedding to Australian business mogul, James Packer.
