How To Watch Ariana Grande's Manchester Benefit Concert
It's been an emotional 10 days since the Manchester attack at Ariana Grande's concert, but don't expect her to hide.
On Monday, May 22, a solo bomber set off an explosion at Grande's concert, killing 22 people and injuring many more.
In the tragic aftermath, Ariana scheduled an incredible benefit concert for this Sunday, June 4, in which she will perform alongside many others including Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, and more.
In an emotional post on Twitter, Ariana said,
We will not quit or operate in fear. We won't let this divide us. We won't let hate win. I don't want to go the rest of the year without being able to see and hold and uplift my fans, the same way they continue to uplift me... ...We will continue in honor of the ones we lost, their loved ones, my fans, and all affected by this tragedy.
Tickets for the concert went on sale earlier this week and reportedly sold out in just a few minutes. Additionally, those who attended the May 22 concert are able to attend the performance for free.
If you're feeling like you wish you could be there to catch all the magic, don't worry, you're not alone: Your TV has your back.
As stated in Variety, BBC Worldwide has coordinated television broadcast of the concert in at least 38 countries, and the U.S. can tune in at 2 p.m. EST to watch it air live on Freeform. Additionally, ABC will be airing a "one-hour highlights show" directly following the NBA finals.
Those at home in the UK can watch it live from 6:55 p.m. to 10 p.m. on BBC One.
President of Disney ABC Television Group, Ben Sherwood, said in a touching statement,
This Sunday, when Ariana Grande and her friends return to the stage, the world will stand united with families in Manchester and across the United Kingdom. ABC and Freeform look forward to sharing the music community's message of love, hope and resilience.
Elite Daily sends continued love and support to Ariana and all those affected by this horrific event.
