Ariana Grande announced a charity concert in Manchester on this Sunday, June 4 and she’ll be joined by Coldplay, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Niall Horan Katy Perry and Pharrell Williams.
The One Love Manchester show will be held at the city’s Old Trafford cricket ground just under two weeks after a bomber killed 22 people at a Grande concert in Manchester.
Proceeds will go to an emergency fund set up by the city of Manchester and the British Red Cross. Grande first announced plans to return to Manchester for the benefit event last week.
“We won’t let this divide us. We won’t let hate win. Our response to this violence must be to come closer together, to help each other, to love more, to sing louder and to live more kindly and generously than we did before.”
Grande has suspended her Dangerous Woman world tour and canceled several European shows, including two in London, after the bombing. The tour will restart June 7 in Paris.
“From the day I started putting the Dangerous Woman Tour together, I said that this show, more than anything else, was intended to be a safe space for my fans. A place for them to escape, to celebrate. To heal, to feel safe and to be themselves,” Grande wrote. “This will not change that.
I will think of them with everything I do for the rest of my life.”
If you attended her show on the 22nd, there are special considerations. Go here for tickets and more info.
