Last night I did it for my fans. A promised show. I stood by them, sang with them and danced with them. I will stand by you all for your love and beliefs and I am proud and grateful that you felt safe enough to show your pride at my show. What you did takes a lot of bravery. I always want my music to bring strength, hope and unity. I was horrified by what happened and I send love to all my fans involved. I would love to come back for my fans when the time is right and hopefully see a room full of rainbows. I love you Shanghai xx
Some said people were ejected by security for standing up during the performance while others said it was because they were waving gay rights flags.
"I want to create a really safe environment for us all to have fun," Lipa said towards the end of the concert.
"I want us all to dance. I want us all to sing. I want us all to just have a really good time."
One woman said she saw an incident between several security personnel, the police and a Chinese couple.
She described the police as being "heavy-handed" and "aggressive".
