We couldn’t be more proud of Ariana Grande. The singer just announced that she’s returning to Manchester to perform, two years after a bomb exploded and killed 22 people at her concert.

Ariana will be headlining Manchester Pride Live on August 25, 2019. The singer took to Twitter on February 25 to share the news.

“Manchester babes, I’m so thrilled to be headlining Pride,” she wrote. “My heart. I cant wait to see you and I love you so so much.”

The CEO of Manchester Pride, Mark Fletcher, also confirmed the news.

“We’re truly honored to be welcoming Ariana back to the city to help us celebrate LGBT+ life,” he said.

And that’s not all because Ariana added that she’s got something else special planned for the city.

“We are still working on something a little more special for you guys,” she wrote to a fan. “It takes a while to put these things together but hopefully I can tell you when I see you at Pride. I love you. Hope that’s alright.”

As J-14 readers know, tragedy struck on Ariana’s Dangerous Woman tour on May 22, 2017. A suicide bomber detonated a bomb just as people were exiting the show. It was a horrifying night for the thousands of fans that should have been feeling overjoyed after seeing their idol sing and dance all night long. The tragedy left Ariana, her fans, and pretty much the entire world heartbroken and in shock that something so terrible could happen at a concert — a place where you’re supposed to feel the most joy.

This isn’t the first time Ari’s been back to Manchester. The 25-year-old returned to the English city for a benefit concert in two weeks later, on June 4, 2017, and it was truly a magical night. She was joined by a ton of stars like Niall Horan, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry and more, who together raised more than $22 million for the red cross and the victims.

Ariana is seriously so strong.
