Ariana Grande will be returning to Manchester to perform a benefit concert for the terror attack victims at Old Trafford Cricket Ground

The Into You singer was left inconsolable after her concert, at the Manchester Arena, was targeted by a suicide bomber on May 22, leaving 22 dead and 59 injured.

Following the attack, the 23 year old postponed a string of dates on her Dangerous Woman tour, and rushed home to be with her family.
And now, Ariana has confirmed that she WILL be returning to the city play a benefit concert on Sunday 4 June 2017 – titled One Love Manchester – at Old Trafford Cricket Ground, to raise money for those effected by the horrific events.

She will be joined on stage by Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Pharrell Williams, Usher, Take That and One Direction's Niall Horan.

Proceeds will go to the We Love Manchester emergency fund. Those who were at the Manchester Arena concert are being offered free tickets by Grande, according to the BBC.

The 50,000 capacity venue will be live on BBC TV and Radio, and will be a tribute for the 22 lives lost following the tragic terror attack that shook the world.

The Dangerous Woman singer had previously promised to return to the city in an emotional statement, writing: "I don't want to go the rest of the year without being able to see and hold and uplift my fans.
"I'll be returning to the incredibly brave city of Manchester to spend time with my fans and to have a benefit concert in honour and raise money for the victims and their families."

General admission tickets are on sale via Ticketmaster on Thursday 1 June 2017, at 10am BST.
