World: Ariana Grande to return to Manchester Sunday for benefit concert

Amercian singer Ariana Grande will return to Manchester on Sunday for a benefit concert to aid the victims of the terror attack that claimed the lives of 22 people.

The attack came at the end of Grande's concert at the Manchester Arena.

Justin Bieber, Coldplay and Katy Perry are among the stars who will join Grande at the benefit concert.

The One Love Manchester show will raise money for those affected by the blast.

Take That, Miley Cyrus and Pharrell will also play at the Old Trafford Cricket Ground gig on Sunday.

Grande is offering free tickets to fans who were at her Manchester Arena show on 22 May.

Others performing include One Direction's Niall Horan and Usher, with more to be announced.

The venue has a 50,000 capacity and the gig will be broadcast on BBC One and BBC radio.

Tickets for the tribute concert go on sale on Thursday, with prices yet to be announced. Those attending are asked not to bring bags.

Proceeds will go to the We Love Manchester emergency fund, which has been set up by Manchester City Council, in conjunction with the British Red Cross. Organisers expect at least £2m to be raised from the event.

Grande sent a tweet with details of the gig, with the One Love logo featuring the bunny ears she is known for wearing. Her manager Scooter Braun also tweeted, with the message: "We stand with you."
