Ariana Grande, who resumed her Dangerous Woman tour on June 7 following a terrorist bombing at her May 22 Manchester, England, concert, profusely thanked her fans as she prepares to move on to her Latin America, Asia and Australia shows.
“At the close of this European leg of my Dangerous Woman tour, I just wanted to thank you properly for the overwhelming love and support you’ve shown me, my crew, and each other during this challenging time,” wrote Grande on Instagram Sunday.
“Spending this time with you this month has been so very healing and special! Thank you for being here,” she continued, in a caption for a concert video clip. “Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your generosity in supporting One Love Manchester” — the June 4 benefit concert she headlined for families and survivors of the attack — “and for helping the families as much as you possibly could. Thank you for bringing your absolute brightest, most passionate, contagious energy to these shows and for wiping my tears away.”
Grande, who played the Pala Alpitour arena in Turin, Italy, on Saturday, moves on to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on June 29. Subsequent dates take her to Chile, Argentina, Costa Rica and Mexico before the tour heads to Tokyo on Aug. 12. She goes on to Australia and New Zealand beginning Sept. 2 before playing her final three shows in Singapore, Taiwan and, on Sept. 21, Hong Kong.
On May 24, two days after the bombing at the conclusion of Grande’s Manchester Arena show, the singer’s management announced Grande was suspending her tour, affecting two shows each in London, and in Lodz, Poland, and one each in Antwerp, Belgium; Frankfurt, Germany; and Zurich, Switzerland.
The singer, who turns 24 on Monday, returned less than two weeks later for the One Love Manchester benefit featuring herself, Justin Bieber, Black Eyed Peas, Coldplay, Miley Cyrus, Niall Horan, Katy Perry, Pharrell, Take That and others. The concert raised more than $3 million.
