“Ariana Grande is getting by with a little help from her friends.
After a deadly terror attack claimed the lives of 22 people at her concert in Manchester, England, last week, the singer revealed she will return to the city to host a benefit concertthat will raise funds for the victims and their families.
On Tuesday, Grande officially announced that the concert, titled One Love Manchester, would be held on Sunday at the Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground. Miley Cyrus, Coldplay, Pharrell, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Niall Horan and more are set to perform.
All proceeds from the concert will go to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, which benefits all those impacted by the tragedy. One Love Manchester will also be broadcast and BBC and streamed online by a yet-to-be-announced digital partner.
Fans who attended the Manchester show on Monday will be given free tickets, and the rest are required to register for general admission seats before May 31.
“From the day we 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,” the 23-year-old wrote. “A place for them to escape, to celebrate, to heal, to feel safe and be themselves. To meet their friends they’ve made online to express themselves. This will not change that.”
Many of the stars who will join Grande onstage have reached out to the pop star over social media with kind words and heartfelt notes since the attack.
“Wishing I could give my friend [Ariana Grande] a great big hug right now,” Cyrus wrote alongside a photo of herself and Grande. “Love love love you … so sorry you had to be a part of such a tragic event.””
