Ariana Grande, along with other major pop music acts, will hold a benefit concert on June 4, 2017 for the victims of the terrorist attack in Manchester, England.
The Daily Telegraph spotlighted in their Tuesday report on the upcoming event that Grande had “announced her intention to return to the ‘incredibly brave city’ of Manchester, to spend time with her fans and hold a concert to raise funds” for those killed and injured at her concert on May 22, 2017.”
The concert will take place at the Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground just outside of central Manchester, and will feature “Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Coldplay, Pharrell Williams and Take That.”
According to the Telegraph‘s article, “all net ticket proceeds of the show will go directly to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund.” The publication also quoted from the chief of Manchester’s police force on the planned event, who revealed that “the families of the victims have been consulted about the planned benefit concert, and that the majority of those spoken to are ‘very much in favour.”
ABC News’ Twitter account posted the full concert lineup in a Tuesday post.
