Ariana Grande returned to the UK for the sold-out 'One Love Manchester' benefit concert


Ariana Grande returned to Manchester, U.K. Friday ahead of her benefit concert for the victims of the suicide bombing that killed 22 people on May 22. 

The pop star, along with Black Eyed Peas, Robbie Williams, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Coldplay and several others, will perform in front of 50,000 fans at the city's Emirates Old Trafford stadium on Sunday. 

All proceeds from the concert will go to Red Cross’s Manchester Emergency Fund.

The show is expected to bring in approximately $2.6 million, according to People.

The full concert will air live at 2 p.m. EDT on Freeform and ABC will air a one-hour special after the NBA Finals. 

Grande set plans in motion for the concert just four days after the attack. 

“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,” she said in a statement.

Greater Manchester Police are still following leads about the suspect in the attack, Salman Abedi, and his network. 

Last week police released a photo of Abedi carrying a blue suitcase around the city just days before the attack. Officials have asked the public to notify police if they remember seeing him with the suitcase. 

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
