Ariana Grande's One Love Manchester Benefit Gig Sells Out In Six Minutes

Ariana Grande's One Love Manchester Benefit Gig Sells Out In Six Minutes

Trustees for the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, which has raised £6.9m, agreed on Wednesday to release £1m in the first round of funding.

In the build-up to the event, Victim Support issued advice for anyone planning to attend, explaining people should not feel they are "giving in to terrorism" if they feel too emotional about going.

In a statement, Ticketmaster said: "We understand that there are a number of fans who didn't receive an email this morning with regards to free tickets for One Love Manchester". Sadly 10,000 heartless people tried to blag tickets as well.

The UK outpost of the auction site took to Twitter Thursday morning to say it was deleting all listings and called out those who would try to capitalize on such a tragedy.

"We worked through the night and verified thousands of original bookings although there were some we could not verify". While a Twitter fan account for the concert made the widely-shared claim that the concert "sold out in six minutes", that claim has not been verified by Ticketmaster or Grande's representatives.

Ariana Grande will play the special concert at Emirates Old Trafford as well as Coldplay, Katy Perry, Black Eyed Peas, Take That, Justin Bieber, Pharrell Williams, Usher, Niall Horan from One Direction, Little Mix and Robbie Williams.

He said that "extra measures if required" would come after the bailout program expires next year. Gao is where a suicide attack on a Malian army camp killed more than 75 people in January.

"At Ticketmaster we are doing everything we can - including extending today's deadline - to ensure that tickets go to the actual fans and not the opportunists or touts who have also been applying for free tickets".

They have announced they will not allow re-sales of One Love Manchester tickets to be carried out on their site.

Others were pleased to get the opportunity to remember those who died or were injured in the attack, with Joel Hernon celebrating buying tickets by saying he felt "so honoured to have the opportunity to celebrate Manchester's strength on Sunday".

Are you heading to the One Love Manchester benefit concert or will you be tuning in on TV or the radio?

With demand so high, Ticketmaster extended the time for last week's concertgoers to register for tickets.

Belfast-owned live events company Central Fusion, which will be operating all the bars at the concert, will also be donating its profits to the fund.
