Ariana Grande is returning to Manchester and she’s bringing along some friends.
Tuesday, the “Break Free” singer announced that she would host a benefit concert that will raise money for the victims of the Manchester bombing and their families.
The One Love Manchester show will be held today at the Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground in Manchester. Other artists who have agreed to perform include Coldplay, Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, One Direction’s Niall Horan and Usher with more.
Tickets for the tribute concert went on sale this Thursday, June 1, and sold out in 6 minutes. Fans who attended Grande’s Manchester show on May 22 will be given free tickets. Those attending the One Love Manchester show are asked not to bring bags. The concert will also be broadcast live on BBC TV and streamed online.
“Bringing the nation together, the BBC is proud to be broadcasting what will undoubtedly be a moving tribute to the victims and their loved ones,” commented BBC director general Tony Hall.
Following the Manchester attack Grande suspended her Dangerous Woman world tour, including stops at the O2 Arena in London—but promised that she would return to Manchester.
“I’ll be returning to the incredibly brave city of Manchester to spend time with my fans and to have a benefit concert in honor and raise money for the victims and their families,” said the 23-year-old pop star.
22 people were killed and 59 others were injured in the explosion at her concert on May 22.
