Mariah Carey cancels Belgian concert following terrorist bombings in Brussels

The singer explained that she’d been “advised to cancel”

Mariah Carey has decided to cancel her concert in Belgium following the terrorist attack earlier this week in Brussels.

The ‘All I Want For Christmas’ singer was due to play her ‘Sweet Sweet Fantasy’ at the Forest National Arena on Sunday 27th March – which is also her birthday.

Taking to Twitter to break the news to her fans she said:


However, the venue has explained that all other planned concerts will still continue, despite the terrorist attacks on Tuesday.

In a statement on their website, the venue said: “Guests are asked to come early and not bring any luggage, backpacks or large handbags, to respond to any requests of security services and to stay alert.”

Earlier this week, 31 people were tragically killed in three coordinated bombings carried out by terrorists across the Belgian capital.


Since then numerous European cities have remained on high alert and security for big entertainment venues is considered.

Adele used her performance at London’s O2 Arena to pay tribute to the victims of the attacks, as well as lambasting the “fuckers” who committed the attacks.
