22nd May 2017 will be a date that will be engraved in the minds of people throughout the world. 22 innocent people fell victim the appalling terrorist attack at the Manchester Arena during an Ariana Grande concert. The sickening events of that Monday night sent a shockwave throughout the world and to show support for the victims and their families, a concert will take place on Sunday 4th June at Old Trafford Cricket Ground.
All proceeds from the concert will be donated to the We Love Manchester Emergency fund which was set up by Manchester City Council to provide aid to the families of the victims.
Ariana Grande will be joined by an all-star line-up which will include acts such as: Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Pharrell Williams, Usher, Take That, Katy Perry and more; and is expected to raise at least £2 million for the charity.

This display of solidarity and defiance towards the evil, tragic events that are happening worldwide is something that is needed, and will be an important event to show strength against the threat of terror.
