Ariana Grande is going back to Manchester, England and this time she’s bringing back-up.
Coldplay, Katy Perry, Pharrell, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, and Usher will be among the music Super Friends accompanying the brave pop singer for a benefit concert honoring the victims and families of the Manchester terrorist attack.
The tragic suicide bombing took place following Grande’s concert last week, killing 22 people and leaving more than 60 injured, including young children and teens. The emotionally devastated Grande suspended her “Dangerous Woman” tour and released a statement via social media vowing to not let “hate win.”

Then today, Grande announced via Twitter that the benefit concert, entitled “One Love Manchester,” will take place on June 4 at the Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester.
All proceeds from the show will go towards the “We Love Manchester Emergency Fund,” in partnership with the British Red Cross and Manchester City Council. Tickets for the event go on sale June 1 via Ticketmaster.
