Share

TICKETS to Ariana Grande's concert in aid of the Manchester bombing victims sold out inside six minutes yesterday.

Fans who attended Grande's gig at the Manchester Arena will be given free passes to Sunday's concert regardless of whether they purchased their tickets.

eBay said in a statement: "All tickets for this event will most certainly be removed by the team who are doing manual sweeps to pick up any that slip through".

Ariana Grande announced the charity show after her performance in the city came to a horrifying end when a suicide bomber struck in the foyer of the arena, killing 22 people.

Tickets for Sunday's benefit concert in Manchester have appeared on eBay after selling out - but the company says it is removing them as fast as it can.

Tickets went on sale Thursday.

The Twitter page said they were still organising the ticketing process for that.
