Freeform will air the full concert live at 2 p.m. ET, while ABC will air a one-hour highlight special following its NBA Finals game later that same evening. Freeform will also air the benefit on their app. A host of other networks will carry the concert event, which is being produced by the BBC, for viewing outside of the United States.
“This Sunday, when Ariana Grande and her friends return to the stage, the world will stand united with families in Manchester and across the United Kingdom,” said Ben Sherwood, president, Disney-ABC Television Group and co-chairman, Disney Media Networks. “ABC and Freeform look forward to sharing the music community’s message of love, hope and resilience.”
The event will also be live streamed on Twitter, Facebook, MTV digital platforms, Grande’s Facebook page and her One Love Manchester YouTube channel.
According to a spokesperson for Twitter, the livestream will be available globally for free on Twitter and connected devices. You can check it out @TwitterLive.
In addition to Grande, Coldplay, Miley Cyrus, Pharrell Williams, Take That, Niall Horan, Little Mix, Robbie Williams and Black Eyed Peas will also perform from the Emirates Old Trafford Cricket Grounds in Manchester, England.
The May 22 attack killed 22 people and injured at least 59 others when a suicide bomber detonated a homemade bomb outside of Grande’s concert at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England. The attacker was later identified as Salman Ramadan Abedi, a 22-year-old British Muslim.
It marks the worst terrorist attack in the U.K. since the London bombings on July 7, 2005, which claimed 52 lives.
