Just a week after the horrific attack which left 22 dead, Ariana Grande has revealed that she will be playing a benefit concert in aid of all those killed and injured last Monday.
Not only will Ariana Grande be appearing at the concert at Old Trafford Cricket Ground gig on Sunday but there will also be performances from Coldplay, Justin Bieber, Take That, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Pharell Williams, Usher, and Niall Horan.
Tickets for the monumental gig go on sale this Thursday and are expected to sell out incredibly fast – however free tickets will be issued to those who attended the concert at Manchester Arena which resulted in sheer tragic horror.
If you are able to get hold of tickets those attending have been asked not to bring bags.
But if you can’t make it to the gig which has a 50,000 capacity then don’t fear as the entire thing will be broadcast on BBC TV, online, and on radio.
All money raised will go to the We Love Manchester emergency fund with the event alone expected to make around £2 million.
Hopefully the money raised by this iconic concert will serve as some comfort for all those affected by the barbarous attack last Monday.
If you wish to donate to the fund you can so here.
