Tickets to Ariana Grande's Manchester benefit concert sell out

It only took six minutes for Ariana Grande's benefit concert in Manchester to completely sell out.

Grande is returning to Manchester for the performance on Sunday, which comes less than a fortnight after 22 people were killed by a bomb attack after the popstar performed at the Manchester Arena.

Ticketmaster said tickets to the event sold out within 20 minutes. Fans who attended the original show had until Thursday afternoon to claim their tickets, the BBC reported.

Ticketmaster also says there were "140,000 fans" hitting their website this morning, and "450,000 searches on our site for One Love Manchester over the last 24 hours".

Concerns had been raised by those who purchased their initial Grande tickets through third party websites such as Viagogo or Get Me In that they would not receive free passes to the fundraising event. "So that is what it will continue to do for us", Grande said.

EBay said: "All of these items are being removed if they appear, and the sellers' accounts will be restricted".

One Love Manchester takes place on Sunday, with proceeds going to the Red Cross's Manchester Emergency Fund.

According to the Sun, eBay has confirmed it's performing "manual sweeps" to take down the scalpers' ticket listings as soon as they pop up on the site. "We are cancelling tickets of those who are reselling wherever possible".

"We're working hard to get tickets direct to fans".
