Ariana Grande has reportedly postponed the remainder of her world tour following the terror attack on Manchester Arena on Monday.

The American singer, who is midway through the Live Nation-promoted Dangerous Woman tour, is booked to play two shows at The O2 in London tomorrow and Friday (25–26 May) followed by a string of dates in continental Europe.

No official statements have yet been issued by Grande (pictured) or the venue, although CNN reports the tour has been put on hold and the Daily Mail has photos of Grande returning home to Florida.

Several high-profile shows, including Take That at the Echo Arena and the debut Amazon Prime Event with Blondie, have been called off in the aftermath of the bombing, and venues and promoters are reviewing their security and bracing for a spike in the cost of insurance coverage.
