Ariana Grande is resuming her tour after postponing a string of shows following the terrorist attack at her concert in Manchester.

The US pop star posted a photograph of the Eiffel Tower on Instagram saying it was her “first show back tonight” and that she would be thinking of the victims of the atrocity at Manchester Arena, which left 22 people dead.

Ariana, 23, told her 109 million followers: “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.

“I love you I love you.”

Ariana suspended her Dangerous Woman tour in the wake of the attack on May 22.

The singer returned to Manchester on Sunday to host the One Love benefit concert.


The concert helped the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, set up by Manchester City Council and British Red Cross, raise more than £10 million to help those injured or bereaved in the attack.

It generated a further £2.7 million as donations poured in both over the phone and online from audience members and television viewers.

Ariana is due to take the stage at the AccorHotels Arena in Paris, France.
