Ariana Grande Benefit Concert Sells Out in 6 Minutes

On May 22, tragedy struck as a terrorist ignited a suicide bomb outside of the Manchester Arena after an Ariana Grande concert, killing 22 and injuring many more.

Grande retreated to her South Florida home, and according to reports, was inconsolable. She immediately stopped her tour and it looked like she would be in hiding for a while.

An outpouring from fans and friends have convinced her to make a stand.

In an open letter on Twitter, Grande called the attack “heinous” and praised her fans for their “kindness, love, strength and oneness.”
“Music is something that everyone on Earth can share,” she wrote in the letter she tweeted on Friday. “Music is meant to heal us, to bring us together, to make us happy.”

Grande has called on her celebrity friends to join forces with her for a benefit concert honoring the victims and families of the Manchester terrorist attack.

“One Love Manchester” will take place on June 4 at the Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester. Coldplay, Katy Perry, Pharrell, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Niall Horan and Take That will also take the stage.
The concert will raise money for those affected by the suicide bombing that took place following Grande’s concert last week. Tickets for the show sold out in 6 minutes. TicketmasterUK is battling scalpers and refunding ticket sales to known ticket reals outlets.
All proceeds from the show will go towards the “We Love Manchester Emergency Fund,” in partnership with the British Red Cross and Manchester City Council.
In the wake of the attack, Grande suspended her “Dangerous Woman” tour which will affect dates through June 5. She has not said when she plans to return to her tour but Live Nation, the concert’s promoters, are offering refunds for all ticket holders.
Former Oasis founder Liam Gallagher performed his own show in Manchester, his home town, on Tuesday night, with all profits going towards the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund.
