Live Nation refunding canceled Ariana Grande shows

Live Nation is refunding fans who purchased tickets for Ariana Grande’s Dangerous Woman European tour through June 5th. The tour was canceled following Monday’s (May 22nd) terrorist attack as Grande’s show was ending in Manchester, England.

“Due to the tragic events in Manchester the Dangerous Woman tour with Ariana Grande has been suspended until we can further assess the situation and pay our proper respects to those lost,” Grande’s management released in a statement. “The London O2 shows this week have been cancelled as well as all shows thru June 5 in Switzerland. We ask at this time that we all continue to support the city of Manchester and all those families affected by this cowardice and senseless act of violence. Our way of life has once again been threatened but we will overcome this together. Thank you.”

Refunds will be granted to all ticket holders at the point of purchase for the following shows:

Thursday, May 25 – London, UK at The O2
Friday, May 26 – London, UK at the O2
Sunday, May 28 – Antwerp, Belgium at Antwerp Sportpaleis
Wednesday, May 31 – Lodz, Poland at Atlas Arena
Thursday, June 1 – Lodz, Poland at Atlas Arena
Saturday, June 3 – Frankfurt, Germany at Festhalle Messe Frankfurt
Monday, June 5 – Zurich, Switzerland at Hallenstadion

Grande’s website shows the tour resuming Wednesday, June 7th in Paris and continuing through September 2nd in Auckland, New Zealand.

TMZ reports that Live Nation is also offering to refund fans who are afraid to attend concerts in England by Katy Perry, Iron Maiden, KISS, Robbie Williams, Phil Collins, Depeche Mode and James Arthur. Sources claim Live Nation is working with box offices worldwide on a refund policy for terrorist threats.

Twenty-two people were killed and dozens more injured after a suicide bomber set off two nail bombs at the Manchester Arena as Grande’s concert wrapped on Monday. Grande was not hurt, but her mom was still in her seat in the front row as the bomb exploded. She, among others, helped get concertgoers to safety. Grande and her mother immediately returned home to Boca Raton, FL following the attack.
