Ariana Grande is scheduled to headline Manchester Pride in England later this year.

The event will take place from Aug. 23-26. Manchester Pride CEO Mark Fletcher on Monday in a statement said his organization is “truly honored to be welcoming Ariana back to the city to help us celebrate LGBT+ life.”

“I’m so thrilled to be headlining pride,” said Grande in a tweet.

A suicide bomber killed 22 people and injured more than 100 others when he blew himself up at Manchester Arena after a Grande concert on May 22, 2017. Grande hosted a benefit concert in the city less than two weeks later.
