Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Take That, Niall Horan, Pharrell Williams and Coldplay will join Ariana Grande when she comes back to the city where 22 people were killed in a terror attack which took place at her concert last week. All net ticket proceeds from the show at the Old Trafford Cricket Ground will go to We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, set up Manchester City Council and the British Red Cross to help those who were injured and the families of those who died. The concert, which will adopt the #WeStandTogether hashtag used in the wake of the terror attack, will be broadcast on BBC One from the venue, which has a 50,000 capacity. Last week, Grande said in a moving post on Twitter that she would be “returning to the incredibly brave city of Manchester to spend time with my fans and to have a benefit concert in honour of and to raise money for the victims and their families. 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. Our response to this violence must be to come closer together, to help each other, to love more, to sing louder and to live more kindly and generously than we did before.” We will continue in honour of the ones we lost, their loved ones, my fans and all affected by this tragedy”
