Grande could make her big return to Manchester at the city's Pride event next August.
Ariana Grande’s much-vaunted return to Manchester following the devastating terrorist attack on her gig over a year ago might take the form of a headline set at the city’s annual Pride event in 2019.
Aside from the One Love Manchester concert, which Grande helped organise and starred in just a few weeks after the horrifying suicide bomb that claimed 22 lives at her gig at Manchester Arena back in May 2017, the 25 year old singer has not yet returned to play the city. She had been supposed to perform at the city’s Pride event in August this year, but the plans had to be cancelled because of security concerns.
She announced British tour dates for her latest album Sweetener a few months back, but Manchester was not on the itinerary, with Grande instead promising a special one-off event for her return to the city. However, she’s now said to be “so eager” to headline next year’s Manchester Pride event because the place holds a “very special place” in her heart.
