Attempts to persuade Justin Bieber to cancel his tour stops in the U.K. due to the tragic terrorist attack that killed 22 people and many hundreds injured after Ariana Grande’s concert in Manchester Arena.
Fans of the singer gathered to Twitter to attempt to persuade him and his manager Scooter Braun to cancel his upcoming concerts not too long after the attack carried out by the suicide bomber although Justin doesn’t have any shows scheduled in the U.K. until next month.
“I am so afraid of Justin’s shows in U.K., for him and for the fans, can he please cancel it? Everyone needs to be safe,” Bieber fan @typedbieber tweeted.
“Next month Justin has a show scheduled in the U.K., for security reasons this has to be cancelled @scooterbraun I beg you!!” @kidrauhlffever added on the social media site amid fan’s concerns for safety at the concerts.
“Cancel Justin’s show in U.K. please,” Bieber fan @nosensws pleaded ahead of his upcoming concerts.
Following the attack, another social media user claimed that her 13-year-old daughter is now “too scared” to attend to Justin’s upcoming concert in London.
While most fans called for Justin to cancel all his shows in the U.K. altoghter, others tweeted the singer to go with his scheduled concerts but to beef up his security detail and procedures.
“If Justin is still coming to U.K. in July Hyde Park please can you amp up security X1000 or cancel,” @SwaggyFalsetto wrote, and Bieber fan @1Kidrauhl_Biebz tweeted, “Cancelling Justin’s show is not the answer, as long as we have stronger security.”
Currently Justin has a concert scheduled at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales, on 30th of June and will also be headlining the popular British Summer Time concert in London’s Hyde Park on the 2nd of July alongside Tove Lo and Marin Garrix so it’s expected of him to take his “Purpose World Tour” back to the U.K. . It’s been thought of that due to the singer’s predominantly young fan base, his shows could cause a really huge security threat.
It’s been suspected that the attack on Ariana’s fans is “no accident” and it’s been thought to be have been carefully targeted because of the star’s predominantly young fans – particularly females – who would have been in attendance to see the star.
It’s not concluded that Justin or his team have any plans to cancel his upcoming shows in the U.K. as of right now, though it’s been observable that Justin has increased his security not too long after the attacks.
Singer George Shephard told LEAF FM that Scooter Braun, Justin’s manager, who also serves as Ariana’s manager greeted her at the airport when she returned to the U.S. after the incident, “will be tightening security” at Bieber’s upcoming gigs in England and Wales.
A statement was issued by Scooter on how he condemned the tragic bombing at Ariana’s concert that claimed lots of lives including children and young adults as a “senseless attack.”
“Tonight, our hearts are broken,” Braun, who counts both Bieber and Grande among his clients, wrote in a statement posted to his official Twitter account. “Words cannot express our sorrow for the victims and families harmed in this senseless attack.”
Justin hasn’t said anything more on the attack since the pop star tweeted out the hashtag “#PrayforManchester” in the aftermath of the bombing, just hours after he confirmed his British Summer Time performance on the social media site.
Do you think Justin Bieber should cancel his shows in the U.K. or should he keep his promise to perform in the wake of the attacks?
