It follows a suicide bombing at the end of her show in Manchester Arena that killed 22 people.

There was a heavy police presence outside Paris' AccorHotels Arena, with roads surrounding the venue blocked off to traffic hours before the event started. Security staff searched all bags and police with sniffer dogs patrolled the venue.

Paris police said security measures were at their highest level following the attacks in Manchester on May 22 and in central London on June 3 that killed a total of 30 people.

Grande, 23, suspended her tour after the bombing at Manchester Arena.

But she returned to the city on Sunday for an all-star benefit concert for victims that raised some $3 million and helped turn the former Nickelodeon child star into a national hero.
