LONDON (AP) — Several people have died following an explosion Monday night at an Ariana Grande concert in northern England, police and witnesses said. The singer was not injured, according to a representative.

There were few further details of what happened during the concert by the American singer, but witnesses reported hearing two loud bangs coming from near the arena's bars.

"A huge bomb-like bang went off that hugely panicked everyone and we were all trying to flee the arena," concertgoer Majid Khan, 22, told Britain's Press Association. "It was one bang and essentially everyone from the other side of the arena where the bang was heard from suddenly came running towards us as they were trying to exit."

Added Oliver Jones, 17: "The bang echoed around the foyer of the arena and people started to run."

Video from inside the arena showed concertgoers screaming as they made their way out amid a sea of pink balloons.

Police advised the public to avoid the area around the Manchester Arena, and the train station near the arena, Victoria Station, was evacuated and all trains canceled.

Joseph Carozza, a representative from Grande's U.S. record label, said the singer is OK and they are investigating what happened.

The Dangerous Woman Tour is the third concert tour by Grande to support her third studio album, Dangerous Woman. The tour began on February 3 in Phoenix, Arizona, at the Talking Stick Resort Arena.

From Manchester the tour is to move through Europe, including Belgium, Poland, Germany, Switzerland and France, through the summer with stops in Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Costa Rica, Mexico and on to Japan, Thailand, the Philippines, New Zealand, Australia and more.

Scratch that. It was terrorism. At least 19 dead. Someone detonated a bomb right outside the arena as people were leaving.

This is one of those artists that kids listen to so its pretty much a guarantee that children are going to be casualties.

Pure fucking evil.

I agree. Cowards. Esp to do so to children. Of course, to do it to anyone is awful.

All those families & friends lives it makes an impact upon, and the parents will never be able to get over something so senseless.

Thanks for that link atari. I used to love watching skynews. For some reason, in the early 2000s, Fox News would switch to Sky News at night and it was superior to any American news channels. That is what caused me to start seeking out international news.

Those social media feeds being shown are horrifying. Its just a sea of kids/teens.

It sounds like the bomb went off at the wrong time. Doesn't help the victims but the survivotrs are lucky that even more weren't killed. Terrorists were looking to make a huge statement by attacking this concert. Taking out hundreds of kids would have shocked the world. Probably meant to be similar to the Beslan school massacre in Russia.

Outside of Lockerbie and the London bombings in 2005, this is got to be the worst terrorist attack not committed by the IRA in this countries history or certainly in my life time.
