This accumulates to a total of £10 million for the families.
Last night saw the world’s biggest artists – everyone from Katy Perry to Liam Gallagher – take to Manchester to play for a crowd of 50,000 people and millions more who were watching online.
The £2 million benchmark was raised from 7pm to 10pm across the broadcast through text and online donations. This accumulates to a total of £10 million for the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund.
The tickets for the event were given for free to those that were in attendance at the Manchester Arena show, the concert where a lone bomber took 22 lives and injured 59 more in the venue’s foyer. However, the rest of the tickets sold out to the general public within six minutes of going live.
During the show, Scooter Braun, the executive producer of the concert and manager to Grande and Justin Bieber shared some words saying: “Manchester, your bravery is our hope. Because of you, we can now represent through this as a worldwide community, that we will be ready, we will be fearless and we will be great”.
The night saw performances from Pharrell and Miley Cyrus, an Oasis cover with Ariana Grande and Coldplay as well as Liam Gallagher taking a Chris Martin sized chip off his shoulder to perform ‘Live Forever’ with the Coldplay frontman.
