Ariana Grande is set to play a star-studded Manchester benefit concert on Sunday, which will feature the likes of Justin Bieber, Coldplay, and Katy Perry.
The 23-year-old singer will perform at the Old Trafford cricket ground, which has a capacity of 50,000, according to the BBC.
All proceeds of the show, being called One Love Manchester, will go to the We Love Manchester emergency fund, while Grande is offering free tickets to those who were at her Manchester Arena concert last week where a suicide bomb killed 22 people.
General tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. BST Thursday through Ticketmaster.
Other performers will include Take That, One Direction's Niall Horan, Miley Cyrus, Usher, and Pharrell. The gig will be broadcasted live on BBC One from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and will also be played live on BBC radio.
Grande officially suspended her world tour, which was due to take her to London, Belgium, Poland, Germany, and Switzerland, on Wednesday.
However, on Friday, Grande posted a heartfelt message on Twitter which read: "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."
The 23-year-old singer said she will be returning to Manchester to "spend time with my fans" and "to raise money for the victims and their families."
It was the first time that Grande had spoken out since last week's suicide bombing. The singer tweeted that she was "broken" on May 22, in the early morning hours after the attack.
Greater Manchester Police chief constable Ian Hopkins told BBC Radio Manchester: "When the idea of the concert came up, my first reaction was, we need to speak to the families of the victims and see what they feel."
"It's fair to say that the majority of them are very much in favour, there are some that clearly aren't and that is absolutely understandable."
The Ticketmaster page requests that "concert-goers do not attend with bags" for "speed of entry."
