It remains unknown whether Ariana Grande will perform her scheduled concerts on Thursday and Friday at the 02 in London, England, despite previous media reports that she had postponed her tour.
The singer has returned to her home in Florida after 22 people died and 50 were injured in an attack at her August 22 concert in Manchester, reports the BBC. But she may return for the concerts.
In addition to the two London dates, Grande had other shows scheduled in Europe.
“As yet the tour is not officially postponed or canceled,” the O2 said in a statement. “Difficult time. We understand and appreciate you are waiting for information as to whether the shows are going ahead on Thursday and Friday, we are still in contact with the tour promoters regarding a final decision. As yet the tour is not officially postponed or canceled, despite media reports.”
“We promise that as soon as we have clear information we’ll let everyone know,” the statement continued. “Thank you again for bearing with us in what is a difficult time for all involved.”
Fan response has been mixed.
@TheO2 This is ridiculous and unacceptable. The uncertainty is only causing greater distress to distraught young fans.—

@TheO2 She's also back at home in Boca. It's clear she's not performing tomorrow.—
