If you were hoping to grab tickets to Ariana Grande’s Manchester Benefit Concert called “One Love Manchester,” you are out of luck, as it sold out in just six minutes.

45,000 tickets

Inside of six minutes, all 45,000 tickets were gone. The purpose of Ariana Grande’s Manchester benefit concert is to raise money for the families of victims who suffered during the attack at Ariana’s concert on May 22. As those who have been following this tragic story know, there were more than 20 people who died and more than 100 who were injured following the suicide bombing.

Free tickets

Anyone who attended Ariana’s concert on May 22 was offered free tickets to attend the benefit concert.

The remainder of the tickets were sold at $52 (or £40). All of the funds earned from the benefit concert will be donated to the Red Cross Manchester Emergency Fund. Experts have projected that the concert will bring in just shy of $3 million. The ticket master claimed to be unsurprised that the tickets went so quickly. After all, they had 450,000 searches for the concert on their website and their phones were ringing off the hook in the 24 hours before the tickets went on sale.

Star-studded

Ariana Grande has planned the concert, but she’s far from the only one who will be performing. Grande reached out to some of the top names in the music industry in order to put together the concert of a lifetime. Other performers who will be joining Grande on stage include Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Pharrell, Black Eyed Peas, Usher, Take That, and One Direction’s Niall Horan.

Ariana planned this benefit concert for two reasons. The first was that she wanted to raise money to help those who were impacted directly by the explosion. The second was that she wanted to send a message to terrorists. Ariana wanted them to know she wasn’t going to stop the music. She wasn’t going to bow down to terrorists.

One of the biggest concerns people have had regarding the benefit concert is how safe it is going to be. Could another attack happen? How do the victims of the attack feel about Ariana returning for another concert? The Manchester police have spoken to some of the victims of the attack who seem to be mostly in favor of the benefit concert. There are, however, some who are not so comfortable with another concert and most would agree that that is extremely understandable.

To date, the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund has managed to pull together £6 million for those who have been impacted by the attack.
