May 22 has been a dark day for the UK and for the world, as terrorists detonated an explosive at the end of an Ariana Grande performance in Manchester, UK. This was yet another unspeakable act of terror, we’ve learned, from radical Islamic followers of ISIS, whom are shockingly common in Europe. This attack targeted young kids and teenagers and cast a huge shadow on Ariana Grande, despite her having nothing to do with it. She took to Twitter to express her shock and sadness. Her manager Scooter Braun, who also manages Martin Garrix, issued a statement.

The pop singer has now cancelled the remainder of her world tour as a video has surfaced, apparently from the attackers. The video also warns of more attacks in the UK.
At the same time, the dance music community is expressing its own shock at the attack.
Concerts are supposed to be a safe place for us all to let go & feel free. So sad about the Manchester @ArianaGrande show. This isn’t right?
