This Sunday, Ariana Grande, a few of her A List performer friends, & Britain will come together to memorialize the attacks on Manchester at Grande’s concert last week. Aside from Ariana, Justin Bieber, Usher, Pharrell Williams, & many more will take the stage for “One Love Manchester” which sold out in under 6 minutes. Proceeds from the concert, which will also be broadcast around the world, will go to a fund designed to help those affected by the attack and their families. Thousands of tickets went on sale Thursday, but a large amount of free tickets were set aside for those who had attended the show that was attacked. Ticketmaster announced that over than 25,000 people had applied for the free tickets, but only 14,000 people are said to have been at the May 22 concert. “Sadly, over 10,000 unscrupulous applications have been made,” Ticketmaster said in a statement. In addition to those 10,000 people, others who got their tickets are selling them for profit on eBay. eBay & Ticketmaster are doing their best to stock any secondary selling. Sunday’s show is due to take place at the Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground, which houses around 50,000 people for a music event. Grande had pledged to return to Manchester to raise money and honor the victims of the attack, which the Islamic State claimed responsibility for. The show will be shown on ABC & FreeForm.
