Ariana Grande and a slew of huge pop stars will play a benefit concert in Manchester, England this Sunday, 4th June, to raise money for the victims of the suicide bombing at Grande’s concert in the city last week.
The benefit show, titled ‘One Love Manchester’, will take place at the Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground, and will feature performances from the likes of Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Usher, Niall Horan, Coldplay, Pharrell Williams and Take That, according to TMZ. It’s also been reported that Madonna could make an appearance.
22 people were killed and dozens were injured after a suicide bomber detonated a device within the grounds of Manchester Arena on Monday, 22nd May, after Grande finished her show at the venue. The bomber died in the explosion, and police have since arrested multiple people in connection with the attack.
Grande released a lengthy statement about the incident earlier this week, saying (among other things), “I extend my hand and heart and everything I possibly can give to you and yours, should you want or need my help in any way.”
