A benefit concert planned by Ariana Grande to help the victims of the Manchester bombing has sold out in only 6 minutes.
The One Love Manchester concert is scheduled for Sunday and will feature Grande and several other artists, including ColdPlay, Miley Ray Cyrus, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Usher, and Black Eyed Peas, ABC News reported.
The concert’s entire proceeds will be donated to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, created by the Manchester City Council and the British Red Cross to help victims of the attack and surviving family members, ABC reported.
Some tickets for the concert were reserved for fans who were there when Manchester Arena was bombed just after Grande finished performing on May 22. Fans who attended the original show had until Thursday afternoon to claim their tickets, the BBC reported.
Sunday’s concert will be held at the Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground and will be broadcast on BBC One, the BBC reported. The show is expected to raise more than $2.5 million for the victims’ Red Cross fund.
Some tickets to the concert were being resold on secondary ticketing sites and on eBay, but organizers were working to void those ticket. Fans are being asked not to bring any bags to the show so the security process won’t be delayed, the BBC reported. The attack on May 22 killed 22 people and injured more than 100.
Some Twitter users were bummed not to get tickets to the show.
