Ariana Grande Taps Miley Cyrus, Coldplay, Pharrell, Usher, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry For Manchester Benefit Show
Ariana Grande is planning to host a benefit concert in Manchester this Sunday, 6/4, not even two weeks after the terrorist attack that happened after her show at the Manchester Arena. The event will reportedly take place at the Old Trafford cricket ground, and so far the rumored guests include Miley Cyrus, Coldplay, Pharrell, and Take That, according to TMZ, who say that as many as 10 acts will participate. The proceeds from the concert will go towards the families of the victims.
UPDATE: TMZ now adds that Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, and Niall Horan will perform at the benefit as well.
UPDATE 2: Grande and Live Nation have confirmed all those performers plus Usher and others to be named. BBC Television will broadcast the concert live in conjunction with other networks around the world, and an online live stream is also in the works. Tickets are available here beginning Thursday, 6/1 at 10AM local time. Those who attended the Manchester Arena show where the bombing occurred can attend the Old Trafford benefit event for free by signing up here by Wednesday, 5/31 at 4PM local time.
