Ariana Grande has announced details of a benefit concert that she plans to hold in Manchester following the devastating attack during her gig this month.

The 23 year-old singer was performing at the Manchester Arena on Monday 22nd May when a bomb was detonated in the foyer as her fans left, killing 22 people and leaving more than 120 seriously injured.

Although she initially cancelled the European part of the tour following the terrifying ordeal, Ariana has revealed that she will play a benefit concert in Manchester on Sunday 4th June to raise money for the victims and their families.

Many other celebrities came forward to offer their love and support during the time, and now many of them have signed up to be a part of Ariana’s gig, One Love Manchester.

Stars like Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Pharrell, Usher, Take That, Niall Horan and Coldplay will reportedly make an appearance at Emirates Old Trafford to a 50,000 person audience.

The concert is estimated to make about £2 million which will go straight to We Love Manchester, the emergency fund set up by the British Red Cross.

Anyone who attended the gig on 22nd May can apply for free tickets if they register before 4pm today, and tickets will go on sale to the general public at 10am on Thursday 1 June via Ticketmaster.
