Ariana Grande to headline Manchester Pride. Ariana Grande is heading back to Manchester.
The ‘7 Rings’ singer is set to headline Manchester Pride in August, her first performance in the city since the 2017 Manchester bombings.
The performance will no doubt be of extra importance to Ariana, as it comes two years after the tragic attacks at one of her concerts in the city, where over 20 people died and multiple were injured.
Less than two weeks after the bombings, Ariana staged the One Love Manchester concert to raise money for the families of the victims and later got a tattoo in memory of the people who died. She included a tribute to the city on the final track of her album Sweetener.
In response to Manchester Pride, she tweeted: ‘manchester babes, i’m so thrilled to be headlining pride. my heart. i cant wait to see u and i love u so so much.”
She also promised she is working on something special for Manchester during her upcoming tour, adding: “We are still working on something a little more special for you guys.
“It takes a while to put these things together but hopefully i can tell you when i see you at pride. i love u. hope that’s alright.”
Years & Years, Becky Hill, Lady Leshurr, Faithless, Basement Jaxx, Louisa, Bananarama, the Freemasons, Gok Wan, Hercules & Love Affair , Pixie Lott and more are also on the main event bill, with Liberty X and Saara Aalto playing the village party.
