After the terrorist attack at Ariana Grande’s show in Manchester on May 22, the European leg of her Dangerous Woman Tour went on hiatus. During that time, she visited survivors of the attack in the hospital and put on the One Love Manchester concert to benefit the victims and victim’s families. One Love Manchester has raised more than $13 million, and performances from the concert have been released as an album. But it’s back to business.
Ariana announced earlier today on Instagram that the Dangerous Woman Tour was back on, and she’s playing her first show tonight in Paris.
Seven shows were cancelled in London, Belgium, Poland, Germany, and Switzerland. Live Nation is offering refunds for those. This is totally one of the benefits of living in Europe. Those cancelled show fans might not get to see Ariana live in their closest city, but that doesn’t mean they can’t still hear her live. All they have to do is grab a £1 Megabus ticket bound for Paris, and boom – within a few hours, they could be listening to the show from outside in the parking lot. Of course, the trade off is that they’re stuck on a bus that smells like upholstered ass and chemical toilet, but really, isn’t that what most arenas smell like anyway?
