On Friday, the pop star made a surprise visit to her young fans injured in the arena.

Previously announced to be airing on BBC One in the United Kingdom and across BBC radio stations, broadcasters across Europe, Asia, North America, Australia and South America have now agreed arrangements with BBC Worldwide to simulcast the event.

All proceeds from the global distribution of TV rights will go towards the "We Love Manchester Emergency Fund", set up by Manchester City Council in partnership with the British Red Cross.


Grande's visited her fans at the hospital after the blast with two weeks after a bomb left over 100 casualties: 22 were killed and over 100 were injured.

Grande shared an image of her visit to Royal Manchester Children's Hospital with her 107 million Instagram followers.

"After last night, she would disown me and her mum if we didn't take her".


Other pictures popped up all over social media of Grande hugging children in their beds and posing with nurses gathered in the ward.

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. "Lily's face lit up and Ariana was wonderful with her. Never seen jaden so happy!even cried again myself".

Alongside Mills, Grande also met other fans including 10-year-old Jaden Farrell-Mann who has undergone two operations. Stars such as Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and Pharrell Williams will join her for the event. Her manager managed to book the top-bill artistes in a short time, and also got support from Manchester law enforcement, and even the Manchester United football game in the city was re-scheduled to help with travel of concert-goers.
