Grande, others plan ‘One Love Manchester’
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.
