In response to the attacks, Grande canceled her Dangerous Woman live dates through June 5, resuming the tour in Paris on June 7. GRANDE's performance will aid the families of the victims of last week's terror attack (NET NEWS 5/22) that left 22 dead and 59 injured (NET NEWS 5/23).

Ariana Grande and other artists will be at the benefit concert that will take place in Manchester on Sunday.

Others performers include Take That, One Direction's Niall Horan, Miley Cyrus, Usher and Pharrell.

Grande had announced on May 26 that she was planning to return to Manchester for a benefit concert.

The concert will take place at the Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground. "I want to thank my fellow musicians and friends for reaching out to be part of our expression of love for Manchester".

Fans who were at the earlier Manchester Arena show should register at www.ticketmaster.co.uk/arianagrandemanchester by 4pm today for their free tickets.

The concert will be broadcast on BBC TV, BBC Radio and Capital Radio Networks who are all "agreeing to shut down their programming Sunday evening to air the concert", Benn said.

Last week, Ariana and her mom sent their heartfelt condolences to the victims' families of the Manchester Bombing. People who did not attend that show can purchase tickets.

Emergency services personnel speak to people outside Manchester Arena after reports of an explosion at the venue during an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, Monday, May 22, 2017.

The singer added: "Music is meant to heal us, to bring us together, to make us happy".

She finished the post by pledging: "We will continue in honour of the ones we lost, their loved ones, my fans and all affected by this tragedy". It's fair to say that the majority of them are very much in favor.

Concerts in Manchester have had increased security since last week's suicide attack, carried out by British-born Salman Abedi.

The kick-off time for Manchester United player Michael Carrick's charity testimonial has been changed from 4pm to 2.30pm to accommodate the concert.
