Ariana Grande Returning To Manchester For Star-Studded Benefit Concert

MANCHESTER, UK (CBS) — Ariana Grande will return to Manchester, England this weekend to play a tribute concert for the bombing victims – and she won’t be alone.

Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Coldplay, Pharrell Williams, Usher and Niall Horan are all set to perform at “One Love Manchester.”

The concert will be held at the Old Trafford cricket ground, less than two weeks after a bomber killed 22 people and injured dozens of others outside of Grande’s concert.

Proceeds will go to a fund for victims and their families.

Grande said in the days after the attack that she wasn’t going to let hate stop her from performing.

“Our response to this violence must be to come closer together, to help each other, to love more, to sing louder and to live more kindly and generously than we did before,” she tweeted.
