Ariana Grande Manchester Memorial Concert Sells Out in Six Minutes
After serious devastation, Ariana Grande's ready to do some good, and fans are following suit — Grande's One Love Manchester memorial concert, which will honor and support the victims of the May 22 bombings at Grande's concert, has sold out about as quickly as the act of brewing a pot of coffee.
Yup, in less than six minutes, tickets (45,000 of them, to be exact) to the June 4 show were completely gone, the event's official Twitter account noted this morning (June 1). First announced on May 30, the show will also feature the likes of Miley Cyrus, Coldplay, Pharrell and additional acts at the Old Trafford in Manchester.
Proceeds from the show, which is expected to bring in more than $2 million, will go straight to the Red Cross’s Manchester Emergency Fund, according to People.
The concert will be Grande's first since the attack and her subsequent suspension of her Dangerous Woman Tour. She first remarked on the attacks in a May 26 Facebook statement, through which she tried to comfort her fans and encouraged them to keep living their lives without reservation.
“I don’t want to go the rest of the year without being able to see and hold and uplift my fans, the same way they continue to uplift me,” she wrote. “Our response to this violence must be to come closer together, to help each other, to love more, to sing louder and to live more kindly and generously than we did before.”
