WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Singer Ariana Grande made a brief stop in Wilmington when she returned to the United States after Monday night’s bombing during her concert in Manchester, England.
Wilmington International Airport Deputy Director Gary Broughton says the singer’s plane stopped at customs at ILM on Tuesday.
Broughton says airport officials didn’t even know she was coming, they found out after she was here. Broughton says Grande remained on the plane and only her crew got off.
The plane was only at the airport for about 15 minutes before it took off.
No word on when the singer will return to England. Her next concerts are scheduled for Thursday and Friday night at London’s 02 Arena. Arena representatives say they are in contact with her promoters but haven’t made a final decision.
22 people were killed in the suicide bombing at Manchester Arena, including teenagers and children. 119 were wounded.
The singer was not injured but said later she was “broken” by the attack.
So far, four people have been arrested in connection with the attack.
