Grande, Bieber, Katy Perry to top concert for Manchester victims

Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, and Katy Perry will headline a star-studded concert in Manchester, England, on Sunday to benefit victims of the suicide bombing at Grande’s May 22 concert there, organizers announced on Tuesday.

American artists Miley Cyrus, Pharrell Williams, and Usher will also perform at the June 4 concert, along with Britain’s Coldplay, One Direction singer Niall Horan, and the Manchester-based band Take That.

The benefit will take place at the Old Trafford cricket ground. Proceeds will benefit victims of last week’s suicide bombing at Grande’s show at another venue in the northern English city, the Manchester Arena.

Islamic State claimed credit for the bombing, which killed 22 people and took place moments after Grande finished playing.

All proceeds from Sunday’s “One Love Manchester” concert 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. (Reuters)
