In a turn of unexpected events, concertgoers that were attending Ariana Grande’s concert in Manchester, England had an unfortunate ending to an amazing show. 

It’s reported that at around 10:33 p.m. 19 people were killed and about 50 injured due to a possible terrorist incident outside of the Manchester Arena in England. Manchester police released a statement on Twitter stating, “We are currently treating this as a terrorist incident until we know otherwise.”

Ariana had just left the stage minutes before the explosion occurred but her publicist Joseph Carozza reports that Ariana is “O.K.” While Ariana might be O.K., it’s reported that many fans are traumatized and there are still parents who have not been able to locate their children since the explosion occurred. Children that have been separated from parents are being taken to nearby hotels or kept in the arena to take refuge until they can be reconnected with their parents. 

Many fans that attended the concert were posting to Twitter while the chaos around them was occurring. There were many fans that were seen in videos running to get out of the arena while others were Tweeting that there was blood everywhere. It’s reported that those that have been injured are being treated at six hospitals throughout Manchester.

Manchester Police carried out a second round of controlled explosions in Cathedral gardens after a suspicious item was found, but luckily “it was abandoned clothing, not a suspicious item.”

What has happened in Manchester has been deeply concerning for many and there has been an outpour of support all over social media, including some celebrities. Katy Perry, Demi Lovato and Taylor Swift have all tweeted in support of those who have attended the show and anyone who has been affected by this incident. 

TMZ reports that Ariana has postponed the rest of her European tour that she was scheduled to perform in. She has also finally broken the silence, tweeting “broken. from the bottom of my heart, iam so sorry. i don’t have words.”
