Manchester Benefit Concert Sold Out In Six Minutes

Ariana Grande’s charity concert for Manchester, One Love Manchester, sold out in an astonishing six minutes on Thursday.

People reports around 45,000 tickets were gone just moments after they went on sale at 10 a.m U.K. time, the twitter site for the concert confirmed.

The concert raises money for those who lost loved ones in the suicide bombing at Grande’s Manchester gig on May 22. Twenty-two people died and more than 100 were injured in the blast.

Those who were at the original gig on Monday May 22 have been offered free tickets, while the rest went on sale for $52.

All proceeds from the concert, taking place at the Emirates Old Trafford stadium in the city, are going to the Red Cross’s Manchester Emergency Fund. The show is expected to bring in around $2.6 million.

Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber are joining Grande and Brit-favorites Take That and One Direction’s Niall Horan are also included in the show. The pop line-up also has The Black Eyed Peas, Coldplay, Usher and Pharrell performing.
