Ariana Grande confirmed to headline Manchester Pride

Ariana Grande is heading back to Manchester.

Ariana Grande is heading back to Manchester to headline the city's Pride events this summer.

Manchester Pride takes place across August 23-26, with Ariana topping the bill for city's biggest ever LGBT celebration.

Headlining Pride will mark the first show for Ariana in Manchester since the historic One Love charity concert held in response to the terror attack at her Manchester Arena show in 2017.

While Pride officials have yet to confirm which date Ariana will perform, the BBC reports that she will play in the new 9,000 capacity venue at a converted Royal Mail depot on Sunday August 25.

Ariana Grande is currently Numbers 1 and 2 on the Official Singles Chart, becoming the first act in UK chart history to dethrone herself at Number 1 for two weeks in a row.

Years & Years, Bananarama and Kim Petras have also been announced as some of Manchester Pride Live's star guests, plus the bill also includes Pixie Lott, Becky Hill and Louisa.

Tickets are on sale now.
