The One Love Manchester show comes less than two weeks after 22 people were killed by a suicide attacker as people left Ariana Grande‘s show at Manchester Arena.

The tribute concert will take place at Emirates Old Trafford Cricket Ground.

The venue has a 50,000 capacity and the gig will be broadcast live on BBC TV and radio. Proceeds will go to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, which was set up by the Manchester City Council in partnership with the British Red Cross, in aid of grieving families and victims of last week’s horrific attack.

Those who were at the Manchester Arena concert are being offered free tickets by Grande.

Others performing include Take That, One Direction’s Niall Horan, and Pharrell.

Seven children were among the victims who died when Salman Abedi detonated a bomb on 22 May.

Grande, 23, suspended her Dangerous Woman tour, including cancelling two shows at London’s O2 Arena, following the attack.

But the US singer had promised to return to Manchester, saying:

Tickets go on sale Thursday 1 June 2017 at 10am BST. Ariana is offering fans who were at the Manchester show on Monday free tickets to this benefit concert. Customers who would like to attend will need to follow this link and register before Wednesday 31 May 2017 at 4pm BST.

Ticketmaster will be in touch via email within 36 hours of registrations. Instructions will be passed on as to how to process your free ticket
