Ariana Grande To Play Manchester Charity Concert On Sunday For Bomb Victims

LONDON (AP/CBSDFW.COM) – Publicists say Ariana Grande will play a charity concert in Manchester on Sunday, joined by big names including Coldplay, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry and Pharrell Williams.

The “One Love Manchester” show will be held at the city’s Old Trafford cricket ground just under two weeks after a bomber killed 22 people at a Grande concert in Manchester.

Proceeds will go to an emergency fund set up by the city of Manchester and the British Red Cross.

In a statement after the attack, Grande said “we won’t let this divide us. We won’t let hate win. Our response to this violence must be to come closer together, to help each other, to love more, to sing louder and to live more kindly and generously than we did before.”

General admission tickets will be on sale through Ticketmaster starting this Thursday, 1 June 2017 at 10:00am BST.

Grande is offering fans who were at the Manchester show on Monday free tickets to this benefit concert. Fans can register before Wednesday 31 May 2017 at 4:00pm BST. Ticketmaster will be in touch via email within 36 hours of registrations with instructions on how to process your free ticket.
