Ariana Grande working on tribute song for Manchester attack victims

Ariana Grande's "One Love" concert sold out in just six minutes after tickets went on sale today (June 1). The channel has also pushed its British Soap Awards from Saturday night to Tuesday June 6 at 8pm.

One Love Manchester, as the show is being called, was due to take place at the exact same time as the Britain's Got Talent final on Sunday evening, but BGT producers have now rescheduled.

"It was a bad thing to happen. but Ariana can pull some of her friends together and get on stage and raise some needed money for the victims of a awful attack", Niall added.

The benefit will take place at the Old Trafford cricket ground.

Suicide bomber Salman Abedi detonated his device, killing 22 people, including South Shore Academy receptionist Jane Tweddle, and injuring dozens of others, as fans left the venue.

Laura Smith, from Hull, told the Mirror she had not been able to register for free tickets because she bought tickets to the Grande concert for her daughters and partner on the GetMeIn resale site, paying almost £500 for them, nearly twice the face value.

Coldplay, Take That, Niall Horan, Usher, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and Pharell William will all join Ariana on stage in an effort to to raise much needed proceeds and pay tribute to victims and their families.

Tickets to Ariana Grande's star-studded One Love Manchester benefit concert are all spoken for.

In a statement, the singer said: "We won't let hate win".

Grande is offering free tickets to those who were at her Manchester show on May 22.

Ticketmaster said: "We would like to reassure any fans who were at the show that they will receive a free ticket".

"Music is meant to heal us, to bring us together, to make us happy", she wrote.

In an interview with BBC Radio Manchester, the senior officer said the pop star's team were "very keen" to return to the city "sooner rather than later" for a proposed date this weekend but that it clashed with Carrick's charity testimonial at the nearby football stadium. We won't let this divide us.
