TMZ reported Monday night the Dangerous Woman World Tour has now been suspended. Grande will not perform Thursday in London and has decided for now to put the entire European tour on hold. After her England shows, she was set to perform in Belgium, Poland, Germany and Switzerland.
The incident is being treated as a terror attack with initial signs pointing to that of a suicide bomber.
“The choice of venue, the timing and the mode of attack all suggest this was terrorism,” said a U.S. counter terrorism official who also spoke on condition of anonymity, according to Reuters.
Britain is on its second-highest alert level of “severe” meaning an attack by militants is considered highly likely.
