The music world has been well and truly rocked after yesterday's brutal terror attack after pop star Ariana Grande's concert left 22 people dead and at least 50 others seriously injured. 

24 hours on, some artists have made the decision to cancel upcoming gigs out of respect. 

Blondie cancelled her show in London - which was due to take place the night after Ariana Grande's - "as a mark of respect for the victims of the terrible attack". 


British group Take That also canned their Tuesday night concert 'out of respect'. Take That was formed in Manchester. 

As for Grande herself, the plan is still unclear. 

There had been reports her tour would be postponed or cancelled, but an anonymous source has now been quoted in British media saying no decision has yet been made. 

The source says the focus for Grande and the team, at the moment, is more about the victims. 

Meantime, a number of other bands - including Guns N' Roses, Iron Maiden and Phil Collins - who're due to perform have declared they won't change their plans.
