The public tickets for the Manchester benefit concert have sold out in an astonishing span of just 20 minutes. Although, some tickets are reserved for the fans who attended the last Monday concert where the suicide blast occurred. Few tickets have been held for those who have not yet been able to claim free places. The ones who haven’t claimed their free tickets can now register for tickets to One Love Manchester until 14:00 BST on Thursday.
The ticket buyers who were present at the day when the blast took place were asked to provide their original booking details in order to avail the free tickets.
