Tickets went on sale for the public at 10am on Thursday, original Manchester Arena visitors of the gig on May 22 have been offered free tickets to attend the show.

Singer Ariana Grande is reportedly working on a tribute song for victims of the Manchester attack which happened at her concert last week.

Ticketmaster UK said in a statement that it was "cancelling tickets of those who are reselling wherever possible", according to the BBC.

Ariana Grande is headlining the "One Love Manchester" event on Sunday to raise cash for the British Red Cross's campaign to support the victims and families of the those killed and injured after Grande's concert on 22 May. While a Twitter fan account for the concert made the widely-shared claim that the concert "sold out in six minutes", that claim has not been verified by Ticketmaster or Grande's representatives.

Calculating ticket touts have tried to get their hands on more than 10,000 free tickets for Sunday's One Love Manchester concert - with some already appearing on resale websites.

"To those selling tickets on EBay for the #OneLoveManchester charity concert for a profit".

Also on the bill at the Old Trafford cricket ground will be Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Coldplay, Take That and Miley Cyrus.

"Please do not attempt to sell #OneLoveManchester tickets on our site".

All proceeds from the gig will go straight to the We Love Manchester emergency fund.

Around 45,000 tickets for "One Love Manchester" were gone soon after they went on sale at 10 a.m. United Kingdom time.

"Robbie has signed up to perform and, of course, the first thing the organisers suggested was getting him together with Take That, who are already on the bill", a source told the paper.

The event will be broadcast live on BBC TV and radio as well as Capital radio, and streamed online.

EBay said it doesn't normally allow the sale of any type of ticket, so any listings for Sunday "will be removed automatically".
