Ariana Grande’s European ‘Dangerous Woman’ tour has officially come to an end and Grande couldn’t be more grateful for the love and support of her fans.
The tour was abruptly interrupted when a bombing took place at the end of her Manchester concert, causing 22 deaths and 119 injuries. Following a visit to the hospital to see victims as well as a charity concert One Love Manchester, Grande resumed the tour in France, Portugal, Spain, and Italy.
Grande was understandably shaken by the bombing but received an outpouring of love from her fans. To close out the European leg of the tour, she wrote the following love letter to her fans:
“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. Spending this time with you this month has been so very healing and special! Thank you for being here. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your generosity in supporting One Love Manchester 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. ♡ I’m immensely grateful!!!! I hope you can feel my love, wherever you are because I’m sending you all that I’ve got. See you so soon. ♡”
Ariana also closed out the tour with a rendition of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” which has since been released as a single on iTunes, with all the proceeds going towards the victims of the bombing.
While this is the end of the European tour, Grande will head over to Latin America on the 29th before touring Asia and Oceania.
