Fans begged Justin Bieber to cancel his british concert due to Manchester Arena suicide bombing.
Canadian singer, Justin Bieber, 23, is due to play an open air concert at London’s Hyde Park in July.
But fans have flooded social media, saying he should cancel the concert for security reasons.
This is due to the terrorist attack at the Manchester Arena, killing 22 people.
An instagram user by name Marhrukhh says:
“Cancel Justin’s concert in the UK, please! We want him to be safe, please.”
20-year-old Leanne Murray, who lives in Ireland and has tickets to see Bieber play in Dublin next month, says she is contemplating selling them:
“I just don’t want what I would hope to be a great night to end in something like last night. It’s frightening to think that it could have been any of us and it really shows that you never know what’s around the corner.”
Robin Wolff, from Agoura Hills, California, when asked if she has concerns for her children attending concerts in the wake of the Manchester attack, said:
“Absolutely. It’s scary. Especially if you’re not there for them, that’s even scarier. Me going with them, I’m OK with that.”
Joe Reinartz, news editor at Pollstar, said:
“In the short term, there are going to be concerns for any large gathering where there will be young people, and that doesn’t necessarily mean a Justin Bieber show. It means a high school football game, or an event at a fair ground.”
Jim Donio, president of the Music Business Association, said he would not be surprised to see musicians cancelling tours because of the attack at the Grande concert:
“Will parents make more informed decisions? Yes, that’s possible, so there can be some impact there.”
