Ariana Grande’s Manila concert likely to be canceled

American entertainer Ariana Grande is reportedly suspending her world tour, which potentially includes her scheduled Philippine concert.

This comes after an apparent suicide bomber attacked Manchester Arena in United Kingdom just after she performed there late Monday night (May 22 in London). The attack killed at least 22 people, including children.

Citing sources connected to Grande, entertainment website TMZ reported that she will not be performing in her two-night concert scheduled at the O2 Arena for May 25 and 26.
