Ariana Grande Will Return To Manchester For Benefit Concert With Miley Cyrus
Following the attack in Manchester on May 22, Ariana Grande is reportedly planning on returning to Manchester to perform a benefit concert for the victims and their families.
Miley Cyrus, Coldplay, and Pharrell have all signed on to perform at the concert with Ariana headlining, which is scheduled to take place this Sunday, June 4, TMZ reports.
Ariana just tweeted about the concert, which, according to her tweet, will be called One Love Manchester.
A fan account, Ariana Updates!, tweeted the list of reported performers for the One Love Manchester concert.
All of the proceeds of the concert will go to the families of the victims.
The performers will reportedly be Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Pharrell Williams, Usher, Take That, and Niall Horan.
There were 22 fatalities and at least 59 injuries following a suicide bombing at the Manchester Arena on May 22 at Ariana Grande's concert. The blast went off shortly after the concert concluded, and Ariana was reported safe shortly after. She tweeted afterward saying she was "broken."
After suspending part of her Dangerous Woman tour, returning to her hometown of Boca Raton, Florida, and reuniting with boyfriend Mac Miller, Grande has now offered to pay for the funerals of all of the victims.
An Ariana fan account, Ariana Updates!, tweeted on May 23,
News on Ariana: Ariana has reached out to the families who's loves ones died last night…. she is gonna pay for the funerals!
Grande also penned a heartbreaking statement about the attack last week and posted it on Twitter.
Part of the statement read,
We will never be able to understand why events like this take place because it is not in our nature, which is why we shouldn't recoil. We will not quit or operate in fear. We won't let this divide us. We won't let hate win.
She also tweeted a link to a donation page to help the victims and their families. It has raised over $1 million as of Tuesday, May 30.
The One Love Manchester benefit concert will take place this Sunday, June 4, at Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester. You can buy tickets here.
