Ariana Grande Says She’s ‘Grateful To Be Back’ On Tour Following The Manchester Arena Attack
Ariana Grande has resumed her worldwide ‘Dangerous Woman’ tour, returning to the stage in Paris.
The 23-year old musician postponed several shows following the Manchester Arena terror attack on May 22.
To pay tribute to the innocent victims of the attack, she hosted a huge benefit concert – ‘One Love Manchester‘ – on Sunday.
22 people sadly lost their lives in the suicide bomb attack in the arena’s foyer immediately after Ariana had performed her last song.
A further 119 people have suffered horrible injuries, with some still recovering in hospital.
The benefit concert has helped raise over £10 million for the victims and their families.
50,000 people gathered in the crowd to show their support and watch the emotional show.
The Paris AccorHotels arena show yesterday was her first night back on the road.
But she’s still making sure to keep the Manchester victims close to her heart.
Posting to Instagram yesterday, the ‘One Last Time’ singer said she’s thinking of all her “angels”.
First show back tonight. Thinking of our angels every step of the way. I love you with all my heart. Grateful for and incredibly proud of my band, dancers and entire crew.
She also shared a snap of her back on stage at the Paris gig, saying she’s “grateful to be back”.
‘One Love Manchester’ saw a star-studded lineup takeover Manchester’s Old Trafford cricket ground.
And the event soon became the UK’s most viewed TV show of the year.
14.5 million people tuned in to see the world unite against terror.
Closing the show on Sunday, Ariana performed a heartfelt rendition of ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’.
Her version of the classic is now available as a charity single in order to raise money for the victims.
