In a statement last week, Grande vowed to return to Manchester, saying: “We won’t let hate win.”
Meanwhile, fans visited in hospital by Ariana Grande on Friday continue to share their delight by posting photos and comments on social media. The father of Lily Harrison, eight, who has a bruised lung and shrapnel wound following the suicide bombing outside Grande’s Manchester Arena concert on 22 May (17), told BBC Breakfast on Saturday that he feared his daughter was dead after she lost consciousness.
“It was (a) tough realisation that we thought we may have lost her,” he shared. He admitted to getting “goosebumps” when Ariana visited his daughter and told her, “I’m so proud of you. You are so strong. You are doing really well.”
“Ariana lit the room up, she was absolutely fantastic,” he added. “She knelt by Lily’s bed and asked her lots of questions. She had so much time for her. Lily was bouncing off the walls. She is her (Ariana’s) biggest fan.”
Lily will be attending the concert along with most of the original attendees at the Manchester Arena concert. The Guardian reported on Saturday that bosses at ticketing agency Ticketmaster reserved tickets for the 14,200 people who attended the 22nd May 2017 show but that more than 25,000 people applied for them, claiming to have been in attendance.
Officials from the Greater Manchester police force noted that they are working with bosses at ticket agency Ticketmaster on the possibility of taking action against some of the 10,000 people who made “unscrupulous applications”.
The One Love Manchester concert will be broadcast live on BBC One on Sunday from 6.55pm to 10pm and will be available to watch on demand via BBC iPlayer.
It will also be on BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 5 Live and BBC Radio Manchester and streamed live online by MTV, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Apple, Viacom, iHeart Media, ANC and TMC France.
