Chattanooga Times Free Press - - ENTERTAINMENT NEWS - NEW YORK TIMES NEWS SER­VICE

Ari­ana Grande is re­turn­ing to per­form in Manch­ester, Eng­land, al­most two weeks af­ter the at­tack at her show there killed 22 and wounded dozens more.

Mon­day morn­ing, Grande posted a flier on Twit­ter for a con­cert called “One Love Manch­ester,” sched­uled for June 4 at the Emi­rates Old Traf­ford Cricket Ground.

An an­nounce­ment con­firms the 23-year-old pop singer, Grande, will be joined at the show by Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry and Phar­rell Wil­liams, along with Usher, One Di­rec­tion’s Niall Ho­ran and the Bri­tish boy band Take That.

The con­cert will be broad­cast on BBC Tele­vi­sion, livestreamed through a yet-to-be­named part­ner, and avail­able on the ra­dio via the BBC Ra­dio and Cap­i­tal Ra­dio Net­works.

In an open let­ter posted on her so­cial me­dia Friday, Grande wrote that she would per­form a ben­e­fit con­cert for the vic­tims of the at­tack and their fam­i­lies. Net pro­ceeds from ticket sales for the June 4 show will go to the We Love Manch­ester Emer­gency Fund. Those who were in at­ten­dance at her Manch­ester con­cert on May 22 are el­i­gi­ble to re­ceive free tick­ets to the ben­e­fit through an on­line reg­is­tra­tion form.

“I don’t want to go the rest of the year with­out be­ing able to see and hold and up­lift my fans,” Grande wrote Friday af­ter­noon.
