In the wake of the tragic bombing outside an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England on Monday, a growing number of artists are not caving to fear and vowing to continue their scheduled tours.
One of those artists is Maren Morris, who took to her Instagram yesterday to assure fans that she would still be coming to the U.K. on her ‘Hero’ Tour in November.
We do this to connect. For just a few hours, no matter what religion, race, gender, or economic background you come from, music tethers us. My heart is broken for Manchester, but I want my fans there to know that I can't wait to see you and give you all big hugs this Fall. No one should fear walking into a venue or onto a stage. It's our job to fight that and have the best time ever. We do this for each other and that will never be stopped. #Manchester 🇬🇧
One of the things I love about Maren is she doesn’t mince words. After the attack on Monday, she tweeted the following:
Singer-Songwriter Brett Cobb is actually in Manchester right now, arriving just a day after the attacks to continue his scheduled performances.
The Cadillac Three, who has a huge U.K. following, also confirmed via social media that they too, will return to the U.K. in early June to honor their touring commitments.
