The shocked Problem singer cancelled dates on her Dangerous Woman tour immediately after the terror attack and flew home to spend time with family members. She returned to Manchester two weeks later for the One Love Manchester benefit concert, which she helped organise for the victims and their families. Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, and Coldplay also performed at the show, which was televised around the world.
