Manchester benefit concert to feature Grande, Cyrus, Bieber, Perry and Coldplay

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

A week after a bomb killed 22 people at Manchester Arena, following an Ariana Grande show, an A-list roster of musicians are joining forces to perform a benefit concert in the English city, including Grande herself. The show is being staged at the Old Trafford Cricket Ground, which seats approximately 50,000. Also on the lineup are Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Coldplay, Pharrell Williams, Usher and Niall Horan of One Direction. All proceeds from the special event will go to The British Red Cross Society, which launched the Manchester Emergency Fund to help the victims' families. Fans who attended the May 22 concert at the arena are able to register for free tickets, while those wishing to purchase tickets can visit ticketmaster.co.uk. Being billed as 'One Love Manchester,' the event will take place Sunday, June 4. All remaining dates on Grande's 'Dangerous Woman Tour' have been suspended indefinitely.

At last, Beck is coming to Seattle! He's actually coming to Redmond, but close enough. The multiple Grammy winner and a personal favorite, the acclaimed folk-rock artist hasn't played the Puget Sound for at least 3 or 4 years. It's been while, let's put it that way. He hasn't released anything new since 2014's Album of the Year-winning Morning Phase, unless you count being a guest vocalist on two singles last year, M83's 'Junk' and Flume's 'Skin,' however, he'll likely still sell out Marymoor Park when he appears at the outdoor summer venue on August 25. For tickets, go to axs.com.

Some other new concerts to tell you about. Amos Lee with the Seattle Symphony on July 11 (Benaroya Hall), Blonde Redhead on July 26 (Neumos), Bryson Tiller on August 19 (WaMu Theater), Matthew Sweet on August 21 (The Triple Door), Mighty Oaks on September 17 (Neumos), Ms. Lauryn Hill and Nas on October 10 (WaMu Theater), Marc Cohn with the Blind Boys of Alabama on January 27 (Pantages Theater, Tacoma) and Michael Feinstein on February 23 (Pantages Theater, Tacoma).

If you're a fan of Olivia Newton John, send her your prayers. The legendary singer-songwriter revealed this week that her cancer has returned and spread, forcing the postponement of several dates on her current tour to undergo radiation therapy and natural wellness treatments. All June shows in the US and Canada have been canceled for now.

Finally, the rock legends keep leaving us. Greg Allman, Southern rock pioneer and founding member of the Allman Brothers Band, died on May 27 from liver cancer. The group had several hits during the '70s, including 'Ramblin' Man,' 'Crazy,' 'Angeline' and 'Midnight Rider,' which was featured in the Melissa McCarthy movie Tammy. Fellow musicians, from John Mayer to Ringo Starr to Chris Stapleton, paid their respects via social media, while other artists like Eric Church and Lady Antebellum honored him with musical tributes. Allman was the father of Elijah Blue, a son he shared with ex-wife Cher, who also mourned his death by saying 'words are impossible.'
