The singer told the sold-out crowd: “When I woke up and heard the terrible news about Brussels, I felt bit bad and sad about the fact that I was going to be doing the show. But I’m really glad we are all here, and we are all going to make enough noise so they can hear us from here.”

She then added: “I'm hoping you've all come to be entertained by me. I'm here to entertain you, so we're all united, so that makes us much better than them f**kers. You're on your own, you f***ing loners!”

The Oscar winner then asked for the lights to be dimmed in the 20,000 seat arena and fans waved their cellphones to illuminate the massive room.

She then broke out into her famous cover of Bob Dylan’s “Make You Feel My Love” and dedicated it to the victims of the attacks and the city of Brussels.

After the song, the Grammy award winner told her fans: “I don't think I've ever actually been so moved before in my life at one of my shows, that was just so beautiful. Thank you very much for doing that… I think they heard us."

American heavy metal band Baroness, who were scheduled to play in Brussels on Tuesday cancelled their concert. They posted the news on Instagram: “We will “make it” to Brussels in the future, and we’ll do our best to make up for the lost time. We don’t know exactly when it will be, but we’ve never permanently cancelled a show.

“Until then, we’d like to extend our thoughts and sympathy to any and all involved in the attacks today. This is horrifying to witness from so close a vantage point, and we ask you not to respond in any hateful or intolerant way to this post, or this situation.”

 

We are very sorry to have had the BRUSSELS  show cancelled. Obviously, this was far beyond our control. We hope those of you in Brussels and Belgium are safe and unharmed. In light of the bombings and show cancellation, we have managed to organize a show in The Netherlands at Poppodium Volt. We do not encourage anyone to travel to this show in any UNSAFE way, so please be mindful with the following info: WE WILL BE ACCEPTING ALL VALID TICKETS FOR THE BRUSSELS SHOW TONIGHT , for those of you who may have a way to attend the concert in Sittard, NL. Additionally, if the conditions aren’t right for you (and we understand that this is the majority of you), refunds will be given on all tickets through the venue/promoter/ticket-service.  We will “make it” to Brussels in the future, and we’ll do our best to make up for the lost time. We don’t know exactly when it will be, but we’ve never permanently cancelled a show. Until then, we’d like to extend our thoughts and sympathy to any and all involved in the attacks today. This is horrifying to witness from so close a vantage point, and we ask you not to respond in any hateful or intolerant way to this post, or this situation.
