Radio stations unite to broadcast One Love Manchester concert

Eagle Radio is joining radio stations across the UK in broadcasting the One Love Manchester concert on Sunday evening.

It is being held to raise money for the families of the victims of the Manchester terror attack.

The concert starts at 7pm and will be broadcast in full on Eagle Radio.

Ariana Grande has arrived in the UK ahead of the concert.

The 23-year-old pop star's private jet landed at Stansted airport on Friday morning, two days before the gig for about 50,000 people.

Other acts on the bill for One Love Manchester at Old Trafford cricket ground include Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Coldplay, Take That and Miley Cyrus.

Ticketmaster is currently dealing with problems after more than 10,000 people attempted to claim free tickets put aside for those who attended Grande's Manchester Arena gig on the night of the bombing.

A spokesperson said the company was doing everything possible to make sure tickets go to fans and "not the opportunists or touts who have also been applying for free tickets".

"Sadly, over 10,000 unscrupulous applications have been made," the spokesperson said.

"We're working hard to get tickets direct to fans. We are cancelling tickets of those who are reselling wherever possible."

Standard tickets, sold at £40, sold out in less than 20 minutes, with some buyers later selling them online for an inflated price.

One eBay seller was trying to offload four tickets to the gig for £1,250.

EBay has said it will remove any listings attempting to resell the tickets, as have ticket websites Seatwave, Get Me In, Viagogo and Stubhub.

Proceeds from the concert will go towards the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund to support grieving families and victims of the terror attack.

Twenty-two people were killed when suicide bomber Salman Abedi detonated explosives in a crowd leaving Grande's show at the Manchester Arena.
