| Filed under: Katy PerryAriana Grande

Live Nation offers refunds to concertgoers.

This is thoughtful of them.

Live Nation is reportedly offering refunds to several concerts in England, in case fans are too afraid to go in light of the bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester on Monday.

TMZ reports refunds will be available for concerts featuring Katy Perry, Iron Maiden, KISS, Waka Flocka Flame, Robbie Williams, Phil Collins, Depeche Mode, and James Arthur.

So far the refunds are only for concerts in England, and may or may not be offered in other countries, as execs at Live Nation are currently discussing the possibility.

The decision for the refunds is partly due to the concert attack and also because the Prime Minister has suggested that another attack is possible in the near future.

A source told TMZ:

"We've gotten about a thousand media calls but very few consumer calls asking for refunds."

We'll keep you updated.
