NEW YORK (AP) - Ariana Grande is scheduled to return to the stage Sunday in Manchester, England, for a concert to raise money for victims of a suicide bombing that struck at the end of her last show almost two weeks ago.
The deadly attack comes less than 24 hours before Grande's One Love concert.
Grande's mother tweeted on May 29, 2017, to share her thoughts on the bombing of her daughter's May 22, 2017, concert in Manchester, England which was subject to a terrorist attack.
It will take place at the Emirates Old Trafford Cricket Ground.
Greater Manchester Police is asking attendees "not to bring bags if they can", in order to speed up entry.
A benefit concert for the Manchester bombing victims will go ahead "with a greater purpose" following the London Bridge terror attack which killed seven victims.
More than 10,000 tickets for the concert were set aside for fans who were at Grande's concert in Manchester.
According to Deadline, BBC One is airing the event in the United Kingdom and deals are being made in over 50 countries, including Brazil, Germany, China, Australia, Italy, Mexico and Sweden, to transmit the concert.
"We will not quit or operate in fear". Proceeds will go to an emergency fund set up by the city of Manchester and the British Red Cross.
"We must not be afraid and in tribute to all those affected here and around the world, we will bring our voices together and sing loudly", Braun said.
Will.i.am, who is also scheduled to perform at the One Love Concert, shared an image of a heart with the word "London" on Instagram. So that is what it will continue to do for us.
All Grande fans who attended the targeted gig were offered free passes to Sunday's benefit concert regardless of where they bought their tickets.
