Just a few months after a terrorist attack at a Manchester Ariana Grande concert killed 22 people, another one of the popstar’s shows was threatened with an attack.

After briefly suspending her tour for two weeks in May following the Manchester attack, Grande returned to the Dangerous Woman tour in June. And on Monday Costa Rica authorities arrested a 22-year-old Colombian man who had made threats online against a new stop on Grande’s tour. The concert happened as scheduled on Sunday in Alajuela.


The head investigator on the case told local authorities the threats were written in Arabic and the suspect was only referred to by his family names, “Caicedo Lopez.”
