LONDON – Several people have died following reports of an explosion Monday night at an Ariana Grande concert in northern England, police said. A representative said the singer was not injured.
There were no immediate details of what happened during the concert by the American singer, but police advised the public to avoid the area around the Manchester Arena.
Joseph Carozza, a representative from Grande’s US record label, said the singer is OK and they are investigating what happened.
Video from inside the arena showed concertgoers screaming as they made their way out amid a sea of pink balloons.
The Dangerous Woman Tour is the third concert tour by Grande to support her third studio album, Dangerous Woman. The tour began on February 3, 2017, in Phoenix, Arizona at the Talking Stick Resort Arena.
From Manchester the tour is to move through Europe, including Belgium, Poland, Germany, Switzerland and France, through the summer with stops in Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Costa Rica, Mexico and on to Japan, Thailand, the Philippines, New Zealand, Australia and more.
