Last week, in an emotional social media post, Ariana Grande announced her intention to return to the “incredibly brave city” of Manchester, to spend time with her fans and hold a concert to raise funds for the victim’s of the Manchester arena terrorist attack.
It has now been confirmed that her return will take place this weekend, on Sunday June 4.
Some of the big name stars supporting Grande at the concert, which will take place at the Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground, home of Lancashire Cricket Club, include Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Coldplay, Pharrell Williams and Take That.
Katy Perry will also perform, as will Usher, and former One Direction star Niall Horan.
The concert this time will even be much bigger than the last one with huge support from other great artist, Manchester and the rest of the country.
On 22 May 2017, 22 people were killed and 64 injured by an Islamic Terrorist Salman Abedi as crowds left her concert in Manchester Arena.
Home Secretary Amber Rudd described the incident as a barbaric attack.
According to the organisers, “All net ticket proceeds of the show will go directly to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund”.
The concert will also be broadcast on BBC Television, and on BBC Radio and Capital Radio Networks, and streamed worldwide.
Manchester police chief constable Ian Hopkins recently told BBC Radio Manchester that the families of the victims have been consulted about the planned benefit concert, and that the majority of those spoken to are “very much in favour”.
“There are some that clearly aren’t,” he added. “That is absolutely understandable.”
Grande has offered free tickets to all fans who were at the Manchester Arena concert when last week’s attack took place.
Its a remarkable thing for Ariana to return to Manchester, to perform again in defiance of the Islamic barbaric way of life but on the other hand like Katty Hopkins always said, How long are we going to let them kill us and after every killing we come together to defy them.
We always do the same thing after every attack but when are we gonna actually stop these animals from attacking us? when are we going to tell them that this is not the Middle East? when are we gonna tell them to either abide by our rules or get out of our land?
I think its time to start paying them back with their own coins. its time to wrestle what is left of our society from them and its time to get tough on radical Islam.
As citizens we knew what we want but we don’t know what our political leaders want which is the big problem.
