The “Everyday” singer had finished her set and left the stage before bangs were distinctly heard and the audience ran out of the Manchester Arena looking for safety. The Greater Manchester Police took to Twitter soon after the event to report there were a number of confirmed fatalities. “Emergency services are currently responding to reports of an explosion at Manchester Arena,” their statement reads. “There are a number of confirmed fatalities and others injured. Please AVOID the area as first responders work tirelessly at the scene. Details of a casualty bureau will follow as soon as possible.” Shortly after the explosion Ariana’s rep confirmed that she was okay. “Ariana is O.K.,” said her publicist, Joseph Carozza, to the New York Times.
Some concertgoers took to Twitter saying they were evacuated, that blood is everywhere at the scene and that injured people are in the area bleeding. “I was inside Ariana Grande’s concert in Manchester Arena. Right at the end a explosion was heard. Smoke on the corridors and blood,” one user tweeted.
