Black Eyed Peas, Robbie Williams added to Manchester concert

As well as Grande, the concert will see performances from Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Pharrell Williams, Usher, Take That, Niall Horan, and others.

Earlier on Tuesday, police said Grande was keen to return to the city "sooner rather than later", after a suicide bombing at the Manchester Arena following her show.

Earlier this week, Grande put up an announcement poster through her official social media pages that said, "Proceeds will benefit the victims and families affected by the Manchester attack".

Grande has taken to Twitter today to announce the concert and to share more details of the event that will take place on June 4th at the Emirates Old Trafford - home of Manchester United.

Tickets for the Manchester benefit concert have sold out within 6 minutes of going on sale.

BBC are airing the tribute concert on Sunday night at 6pm, which is set to raise millions for the victims of the attack.

"The only thing we can do is choose how we let this affect us and how we live our lives from here on out", she wrote. We won't let this divide us.

"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.

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.

'Music is meant to heal us, to bring us together, to make us happy. "So that is what it will continue to do for us", Grande said.

There were concerns that some fans, who had bought tickets through secondary websites, would not be entitled to passes, but Ticketmaster have extended their registration deadline and are working to verify all ticket holders.
