Other stars are joining Ariana Grande at a benefit concert to follow the Manchester attack, including Coldplay, Katy Perry and Justin Bieber.

The Benefit Concert

The benefit concert is called the One Love Manchester show and will be raising money for the victims of the deadly Manchester attack which killed 22 people and injured 64.

Ariana is also offering the tickets for free to her fans who attended her Manchester Arena show where the attack happened.

Many other stars will be joining her including Coldplay, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Nial Horan- from One Direction- and Usher. It will be BBC-broadcasted (on BBC One and BBC radio) and will  have a 50,000 capacity.

The tickets will be on sale starting Thursday. The prices will still be announced. Due to the last attack, attendees are told not to come with bags.

Grande on the Concert

Ariana Grande tweeted a picture about her gig- a pink poster with the logo  of “one love” with her famous bunny ears on the “o” in love.

Grande had suspended her world tour following the deadly Manchester attack. However, she promised to come back to Manchester: “I don’t want to go the rest of the year without being able to see and hold and uplift my fans.”

“I’ll be returning to the incredibly brave city of Manchester to spend time with my fans and to have a benefit concert in honour and raise money for the victims and their families.”

Police on the Upcoming Concert

Ian Hopkins, the Chief of police said: “When the idea of the concert came up, my first reaction was, we need to speak to the families of the victims and see what they feel.

“It’s fair to say that the majority of them are very much in favour, there are some that clearly aren’t and that is absolutely understandable.”
