- Story Text: Preparations were underway on Saturday (June 3) for the "One Love Manchester" concert to be held at the Emirates Old Trafford Cricket Ground on Sunday (June 4).
The all-star benefit concert to be held almost two weeks after a suicide bomber killed 22 people and wounded 116 at a concert held by U.S. pop singer Ariana Grande at the Manchester arena.
Grande paid a surprise visit on Saturday to young fans who were injured in the attack, posing with them for selfies and signing t-shirts.
Grande returned to Britain on Friday and visited a hospital in the northern English city where many of the injured are being treated.
The Manchester Evening News newspaper said she brought presents and chatted with young fans, including 10-year-old Jaden Farrell-Mann, who suffered fractures to both legs and shrapnel wounds and has undergone two operations.
Adam Harrison told the BBC his daughter Lily "felt like a rock star" after meeting her idol late on Friday and was "chomping at the bit" to attend the concert.
The "One Love Manchester" concert will also feature Coldplay, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams, Take That and the Black Eyed Peas.
