In the wake of Monday’s terrorist attack, Ariana Grande has suspended her “Dangerous Woman” tour at least through June 5th. On Tuesday, a somber Grande was photographed being greeted at the airport by her boyfriend, Mac Miller, as she arrived in Florida.

“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,” said a statement from Grande’s team obtained by ABC. “Our way of life has once again been threatened, but we will overcome this together. Thank you.”

In the coming days, Grande and her associates will “further assess the situation and pay our proper respects to those lost.”

Grande, her band and crew escaped the blast without injury. Her mother, Joan Grande, was said to have helped protect some fans backstage right after the attack.

Will The Tour Resume In Paris?

If the tour were to resume as is currently planned, Grande’s first concert after Monday’s deadly bombing would be in Paris, the site of the deadly Bataclan terrorist attack which killed 130 in November of 2015.

Grande’s only public comment since the deadly attack has been a single tweet shortly after the suicide bomber killed 23 and injured more than 50 others.
