Ariana Grande Pens Emotional Note After Wrapping European Tour: Thank You for 'Wiping My Tears Away'
Almost one month after the Manchester tragedy that killed 22 and left more than 100 injured, Ariana Grande has officially wrapped the European leg of her Dangerous Woman tour. ​And now, the 23-year-old singer is thanking her fans.
In an emotional note posted on Sunday, the pop star wrote that she is “immensely grateful” for all the love and support she’s received from fans, and that she is sending them all her love.
“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,” Grande wrote. “Spending this time with you this month has been so very healing and special!”
The “Into You” singer also thanked fans for their willingness to partake in One Love Manchester, the star-studded benefit concert Grande hosted earlier this month to honor those who were affected by the bombing. The concert raised over $9 million for the Red Cross and We Love Manchester Emergency Fund.
“Thank you for being here,” she continued. “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. ♡ @alfredoflores @dangerouswomantour,” she concluded the sweet note.
The “Love Me Harder” singer also shared a video from last night’s show in Turin, Italy, thanking her band for their talent and hard work.
“You are so incredible,” she captioned the black-and-white shot. “I love my band so so so much. Endlessly grateful for you guys.”
Following the May 22 bombing, Grande and several members of her band got tattoos of the Manchester bee symbol to honor the city and victims of the attack. It was also announced that Grande will be made an honorary citizen of the city.
