Here's why Ariana Grande didn't call off her tour after the Manchester bombing
Ariana Grande is getting honest about calling off her Dangerous Woman Tour.
Following the traumatic attack outside of her Manchester concert earlier this year, going home and calling off her world tour was not an option for Ariana Grande, she revealed in a new personal interview with Coveteur.
The terror attack killed 22 people, including young fans, outside of the Manchester, England stop in May. She canceled a few shows following the attack, but then returned to Manchester to raise money for people impacted by the tragedy. The benefit show raised over $13 million.
In the interview, the pop singer said she's never experienced something so traumatic.
"Tour can be a lot," Ari said, getting emotional. "Calling it off and going home was not an option. The message of the show was too important. For the crew and everyone involved, it's become more than just a show for us. We are really grateful to be here and really grateful for this show."
Ariana said keeping up with a healthy lifestyle was super important to her during her time on tour. She emphasized the importance of self-care. "I think what I'm probably going to do (after the tour) is check in on my health," she said in the interview.
