KISS cancels concert in Manchester after terrorist attack

During her visit, Grande plans to hold a benefit concert to honor and raise money for those affected by the attack. On Friday, she released another statement on Instagram.

"I don't want to go the rest of the year without being able to see and uplift my fans".

Grande did not give a specific date in her post for her return to Manchester, but promised to share details as soon as everything is confirmed.

She encouraged her fans to not "operate in fear". "We won't let hate win".

The man arrested in the inner-city area of Rusholme Friday evening local time was not identified, but police said he was arrested "on suspicion of offences contrary to the terrorism act" and the arrest was connected to Monday's bombing outside an Ariana Grande concert.

"There is nothing I or anyone else can do to take away the pain you are feeling or to make this better", she wrote.

A spokesperson from Greater Manchester Police said: 'We are now carrying out a search at an address at a property in Moss Side in connection with the attack on the Manchester Arena on Monday.

Both arrests were part of a massive security operation launched after 22 persons died and dozens more were wounded Monday night in a suicide bombing during a concert by American pop singer Ariana Grande. At least 59 people were injured during the act of terror, in addition to the deaths.

This undated photo obtained on May 25, 2017 from Facebook shows Manchester-born Salman Abedi, suspect of the recent Manchester terrorist attack. ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Grande wrote of the unifying power of music and appealed for people to come "closer together, to help each other, to love more, to sing louder and to live more kindly and generously than we did before".
