Ariana Grande to resume tour in Paris amid tight security

US singer Ariana Grande is to resume her world tour in Paris tonight, more than two weeks after it was interrupted by the Manchester suicide bomb attack.

Security will be extra tight in the French capital, a day after police shot and injured a man who attacked an officer outside the world-famous Notre Dame cathedral

Roads will be blocked off around the concert venue in the east of Paris while police will help security guards to check fans as they arrive for the show.

On May 22 a suicide bomber blew himself up, killing 22 people including 7 children at a concert by Grande in Manchester.

She canceled shows she was due to give in London, Belgium, Germany, Poland and Switzerland, and returned to Florida, before returning to Manchester on Sunday to headline an all-star benefit show for victims of the attack.
