Fans who are due to attend a concert at London’s o2 have pleaded with the venue to cancel the show.
Fans have called upon o2 to cancel a forthcoming Ariana Grande show following the horrific bombing of Manchester Arena, where she was performing on Monday evening. A suicide bomber entered the Manchester Arena at the end of her concert and detonated his explosives in one of the foyers of the venue. The explosion killed 22 and injured a further 59 people.
The 02 have issued a statement saying that they are “in contact with the tour promoters” regarding a final decision on whether Ariana’s tour, Dangerous Woman, will continue with its two London dates at the 02.
She is due to perform at the world-famous London venue on the 25th and 26th of May.

In response to their statement, fans have urged the venue to cancel the show, saying that “no way will Ari be able to perform” whilst another added, “She needs f**king time, people are so selfish honestly. It’s important for her to rest and try to calm down after all this happened.”
Some fans were concerned that Ariana would feel obliged to perform for her fans but were quick to point out that they would rather the 23-year-old singer take “time off to heal” and they “wouldn’t expect anyone to perform after that shock”.
