17-year-old pupil Shauna Burns won tickets to the concert in a local radio contest and took her friend and fellow choir member Adam Khan, 17.

The organizers of the benefit show, "One Love Manchester", offered fans a chance to register for free tickets to the event. All tickets for this event will most certainly be removed by the team who are doing manual sweeps to pick up any that slip through.

More donations are expected in the coming week, including after Ariana Grande's return for the One Love Manchester concert on Sunday.

The initial registration for the tickets closed at 4pm on Wednesday, but Ticketmaster has now revealed that they have extended the deadline to 2pm on Thursday.

Due to this loophole, many survivors were stuck and unsure of what to do in order to get their promised tickets.

But popular online shopping site eBay is taking action against the ticket touts who are trying to take advantage of the special event.

"We worked through the night and verified thousands of original bookings although there were some we could not verify".

Money raised from the tickets will go to the We Love Manchester emergency fund, a central fund to support the victims of the Manchester terror attack as well as their families.

On Thursday morning, general sale tickets for the all-star benefit concert sold out in less than 20 minutes.

One Instagram user took a screenshot of two tickets that were being resold for $516 after being purchased for $103. "With over 450,000 searches on our site for One Love Manchester over the last 24 hours, demand was always going to be extremely high". Now the live coverage will continue on until the concert ends at 10pm.
