Tickets to Ariana Grande’s star-studded One Love Manchester benefit concert are all spoken for.

The widely publicized event sold out to the public within the first half hour, the BBC reports. A Twitter account dedicated to the event claimed that the tickets were all snagged within just six minutes.

In addition to a performance by Grande, the show will also feature top acts like Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Niall Horan, The Black Eyed Peas, Coldplay, Usher, and Pharrell Williams.

Fans who attended Grande’s Manchester show the night of the bombing will be eligible to enter a lottery to win free tickets to the show. And Ticketmaster is working to ensure that no resellers will attempt to profit off of the charity event.

“#OneLoveManchester We’re working hard to get tickets direct to fans. We are cancelling tickets of those who are reselling wherever possible,” the company tweeted on Thursday.

Proceeds from the event will go to the Red Cross’s Manchester Emergency Fund.

A suicide bomber took the lives of 22 Manchester concert goers and injured 59 on May 22.

En días pasados se dio a conocer que Ariana Grande regresará a la ciudad de Mánchester durante este fin de semana para ofrecer un concierto a beneficio de los afectados por el lamentable ataque terrorista del pasado 22 de mayo.

El atentado perpetrado por ISIS dejó a 22 personas sin vida y a otras 59 heridas.

El show llamado One Love Manchester se realizará el 4 de junio en el escenario del Emirates Old Traffors, y lo mejor de todo es que Grande no estará sola. Según la información que se ha conocido sobre el evento, estrellas como Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Pharrell Williams, UsherNiall Horan dirán presente para mostrar su apoyo. De igual forma se especula que Justin Bieber también podría participar.

Sin embargo, esta lluvia de estrellas no es suficiente para todos, así que hay quienes se preguntan por qué Demi Lovato no entró en ese importante cartel.

Lovato fue una de las personalidades que se pronunció públicamente sobre el ataque de Mánchester y envió su cariño a la intérprete de One Last Time, diciendo, «Siento mucho que tuvieras que pasar por esto Ari… Esto no es justo y nadie debería vivirlo. Mis pensamientos y oraciones están contigo y con las víctimas. Te amo mucho mucho mucho».

Luego de un sentido mensaje como este, muchos supusieron que Demi también acompañaría a Ariana en su regreso a Mánchester. Por eso, al no ver señales de ella en el show, preguntaron qué sucedía.

«@ArianaGrande, ¿por qué Demi (@ddlovato) no participará? Ella envió un hermoso mensaje de apoyo», preguntó una fan en Instagram.

Demi alcanzó a leer su consulta y respondió un incómodo, «Porque no me lo pidieron».

¡Auch!

¿Todo bien entre Ariana y Demi? ¿Por qué no la tomaron en cuenta?

However, I extend my hand and heart and everything I possibly can give to you and yours, should you want or need my help in any way.”

“I don’t want to go the rest of the year without being able to see and hold and uplift my fans, the same way they continue to uplift me. Our response to this violence must be to come closer together, to help each other, to love more, to sing louder and to live more kindly and generously than we did before. I’ll be returning to the incredibly brave city of Manchester to spend some time with my fans and to have a benefit concert in honor of and to raise money for the victims and their families. I want to thank my fellow musicians and friends for reaching out to be part of our expression of love for Manchester. I will have details to share with you as soon as a everything is confirmed.”

She added, “From the day we started putting the Dangerous Woman Tour together, I said that this show, more than anything else, was intended to be a safe place for my fans. A place for them to escape, to celebrate, to heal, to feel safe and to be themselves. To meet their friends they’ve made online. To express themselves. This will not change that.”

“When you look into the audience at my shows, you see a beautiful, diverse, pure, happy crowd. Thousands of people, incredibly different, all there for the same reason, music,” Grande continued. “Music is something that everyone on Earth can share. Music is meant to heal us, to bring us together, to make us happy. So that is what it will continue to do for us. We will continue in honor of the ones we lost, their loved ones, my fans and all affected by this tragedy.”

She wrapped up her letter, “They will be on my mind and in my heart every day and I will think of them with everything I do for the rest of my life,” signing, “Ari.”
