One Love Manchester concert will go ahead "with greater purpose" after London attack

The One Love Manchester charity concert will go ahead as planned tonight following yesterday's London terror attack.

One Love Manchester is a special concert to be held at Manchester's Emirates Old Trafford Cricket Ground to honour and raise vital funds for the victims and families who were tragically affected by the Manchester attack after Ariana Grande’s show last week.

Ariana's manager Scooter Braun tweeted today: “After the events in London, and those in Manchester just two weeks ago, we feel a sense of responsibility to honour those lost, injured, and affected.

"We plan to honour them with courage, bravery, and defiance in the face of fear. Today’s One Love Manchester benefit concert will not only continue, but will do so with greater purpose."

He added: “All artists involved have been unwavering in their support this morning and are determined to carry on with the show. We ask the strong city of Manchester and the world to join us in making the statement that hatred and fear will never win.

“Today we stand together. Thank You”.

The concert will feature performances by Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Pharrell Williams, Take That and Niall Horan, with added acts today including Little Mix, Robbie Williams and Black Eyed Peas.

The BBC One TV coverage, broadcast from 6.55pm to 10pm, will be presented by Sara Cox and Ore Oduba, with Nick Grimshaw and Anita Rani hosting from backstage and in the crowd.
