ARIANA Grande has announced a star studded show in honour of those who died and were injured in the Manchester bombing at her concert.
The pop star released a statement vowing to return to the “incredibly brave city” of Manchester this Sunday to raise funds for the families of the 22 people who were killed and dozens more injured by suicide bomber Salman Abedi.
The One Love Manchester show will see the biggest names in music come together including Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Coldplay and Take That.
American singers Pharrell Williams, Usher and One Direction singer Niall Horan will also perform.
It will take place at Manchester’s Old Trafford cricket ground and will be broadcast live by BBC television and radio.
All proceeds from the concert will go to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund which was set up by the Manchester City Council in partnership with the British Red Cross.
The fund has already garnered more than $11 million.
Grande, 23, has offered free tickets to the charity concert to all of those who were at her Manchester show on May 22.
She posted a heartfelt message on her social media accounts yesterday announcing the concert.
“Music is meant to heal us, to bring us together, to make us happy,” she wrote.
“So that is what it will continue to do for us. We will continue to honour the ones we lost, their loved ones, my fans and all affected by this tragedy. They will be on my mind and in my heart every day and I will think of them with everything I do for the rest of my life.”
Tickets will go on sale on Thursday, London time.
Concert goers will be asked not to bring bags to the event, with tight security to be in place.
The One Last Time singer cancelled several concerts scheduled in London and Europe through to June 5.
