A rep for Ariana Grande has confirmed she’s uninjured after an explosion at one of her Dangerous Woman stadium shows at Manchester Arena, in northern Englandkilled 19 people.
The 23-year-old’s press officer released the following statement to Just Jared:
“Ariana is okay. We are further investigating what happened.”
The support act for the UK dates of the world tour’s European leg, US rapper Bianca Landrau – aka BIA or Perico Princess – tweeted to fans that she and her team are also unharmed.
While details are still rolling in, witnesses have described hearing “loud bangs” at Manchester Arena just after the pop star finished performing. 
British Transport Police have confirmed the incident occurred in the foyer area of the stadium at around 10:30pm.
Joe Gregory, who was sitting in a car directly across from the arena waiting for his girlfriend (she was inside but is thankfully ok), recorded the loud bang made by the blast.
>>> Listen to this one with sound.

Emergency services are yet to confirm the cause of the blast but it’s currently being treated as a terrorist incident until police know otherwise.

Various reports suggest a panicked stampede as concertgoers tried to escape may be the primary cause of death and injury.
Our thoughts are with the family and friends of all those involved in this awful incident.
