In her Instagram posting, she said that her Dangerous Woman concert tour was meant to be a "space for my fans, a place for them to escape, to celebrate, to heal, to feel safe and to be themselves".

Media in Britain reported on Friday that Grande has promised that she will return to Manchester following the terror attack to spend time with her fans and to "have a benefit concert in honour of and to raise money for the victims and their families", Xinhua news agency reported.

Grande didn't announce a date for the benefit concert but says she'll have more details once everything is confirmed.

This is a fast moving investigation and "we are keeping as open mind at this stage", the police said.

"Our response to this violence must be 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", she wrote.

Grande canceled two weeks of concerts, including two shows in London, after the attacks. Grande's next scheduled performance is June 7 in Paris.

She has only occasionally shared personal views, including criticizing double-standards for women in entertainment, voicing support for gay rights and advocating a vegan diet to prevent animal cruelty.

Former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher, a Manchester native, said on Friday he would donate the proceeds of his show next Tuesday in the city to a fund supporting victims and their families.
