Ariana Grande will return to Manchester on Sunday (June 4) to headline a fundraising concert for the victims of the suicide bombing at her Manchester Arena gig on May 22.
The 23-year-old singer vowed to return to the city in a defiant message on Friday May 26 and it has now been confirmed that the concert, being produced by Live Nation, is going ahead.
Ariana and her manager Scooter Braun have contacted some of the biggest names in the music industry and booked them to perform.
Ariana has also allegedly been reaching our to her friends and asking them to participate in the concert, which will be held at Manchester’s Old Trafford cricket ground.
Acts that have been confirmed for the concert so far are:
- Ariana Grande
- Justin Bieber
- Miley Cyrus
- Niall Horan
- Take That
- Pharrell Williams
- Katy Perry
- Robbie Williams
- Little Mix
- Black Eyed Peas
The full line-up is still an ongoing process with more artists set to be announced. Rapper Eminem is also rumoured to be joining, if scheduling allows.
Tickets went sale on Thursday 1 June at 10am (TODAY), with all proceeds from the event going towards the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund set up by Manchester City Council and The Red Cross.
However, the demand for tickets was so high that they sold out in just six minutes – and fans were left frustrated when the website selling them crashed as they waited in the queue.
People who attended Ariana’s Manchester concert last Monday will be able to attend the event for free if they have already registered.
All proceeds of the event will go to the victims and their families.
