MANCHESTER, England (AP) — The Latest on the One Love Manchester benefit concert (all times local):
Ariana Grande has paid tribute to the victims who died at her Manchester concert with an all-star affair in the city with the help of Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Liam Gallagher and others.
Sunday’s One Love Manchester concert, held at the city’s Old Trafford cricket ground, also featured Coldplay, Pharrell Williams, Take That, Imogen Heap, Robbie Williams, Marcus Mumford, Niall Horan and Little Mix.
Gallagher and Take That hail from Manchester.
Grande sang multiple times throughout the three-hour-plus show, even duetting with Miley Cyrus, the Black Eyed Peas, Mac Miller and the Parrs Wood High School Choir, one of the show’s strongest moments.
The concert raised money for victims and those injured in the suicide bombing that struck at Grande’s May 22 show. Twenty-two people were killed and dozens more were injured.
Singer Ariana Grande has returned to the stage two weeks after a suicide bombing killed 22 people at her concert in Manchester.
Grande emerged onstage for the One Love Manchester concert Sunday. She appeared teary-eyed and emotional as she performed her hits “Be Alright” and “Break Free.”
She told the audience, “Manchester, we’re gonna be all right.”
Before her performance, she and her dancers held hands in solidarity.
Sunday’s concert will raise money for victims of the attack that struck at Grande’s show on May 22. The show is broadcasting across the globe and proceeds will go to an emergency fund set up by the city of Manchester and the British Red Cross.
Other artists performing include Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Take That, Katy Perry and others.
British singer Marcus Mumford held a moment of silence before performing at the Manchester benefit concert Sunday.
The leader of rock band Mumford & Sons sang “Timshel” while strumming his guitar at the “One Love Manchester” concert, held at the city’s Old Trafford cricket ground. The song includes the lyrics: “But you are not alone in this, and you are not alone in this, as brothers we will stand and we’ll hold your hand.”
Sunday’s concert will raise money for victims of a suicide bombing that struck at the end of singer Ariana Grande’s Manchester show May 22. The attack killed 22 and wounded dozens.
Others set to perform include Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and Take That.
The show is being broadcast live across the globe.
Ariana Grande fans have begun arriving for the American pop singer’s Manchester benefit concert, nervous but determined to show solidarity with the victims of the suicide bombing at an earlier Grande show in the city.
Fans Stacie Richardson and James Bend say there were shaken after the May 22 attack at Manchester Arena. But that wasn’t going to stop them from coming back to show support for both Grande and the 22 people killed in the attack.
Richardson says Grande is “very brave to come back so soon.”
They say the car and knife rampage in London on Saturday did little to ease their worries.
Linda Tipping and Laura Mayren, from Chorley in northwest England, say they were determined to enjoy themselves even as London was reeling.
Tipping says: “We can’t let them stop us.”
Ariana Grande is scheduled to take the stage again Sunday in Manchester, England, for a star-studded benefit concert to help victims of a suicide bombing that struck her last concert and killed 22 people.
Grande will be joined by Coldplay, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry and many other top acts at the concert at the Old Trafford cricket ground.
The “One Love Manchester” concert will take place less than two weeks after the attack at Grande’s concert, and a day after attackers killed seven people in the heart of London.
Other performers Sunday include Pharrell Williams, Take That and Marcus Mumford.
Proceeds from the show, which will broadcast live across the globe, will go to an emergency fund set up by the city of Manchester and the British Red Cross.
