Airdate: One Love Manchester Tribute Concert. Update: Big Bang Theory

Nine has rushed Ariana Grande’s One Love Manchester Tribute Concert into schedule on Monday night.

The event is being held in Manchester this weekend to remember the victims of the terrorist attack which killed 22 people.

The event includes some of the world’s biggest performers including¬†Miley Cyrus, Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Robbie Williams and more.

In the UK even Britain’s Got Talent has moved nights for its Final to give ample focus to the Manchester concert.

“We will not quit or operate in fear. We won’t let this divide us. We won’t let hate win,” Grande said in a statement.

“Our response to this violence must be to come closer together, to help each other, to love more, to sing louder and to live more kindly and generously than we did before.”

One Love Manchester will also be streamed live at 4am AEST on Monday on 9Now.

As a result of the late programming addition, The Big Bang Theory return is pushed back to a week later, Monday June 12.

Footy Classified moves to GO! in Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth at the early time of 8:30pm.

    The question should actually be what is the plan for Nine if the Tribute Concert is cancelled due to security concerns? Then they will have thrown away two sets of promos.

  2. Nine have just thrown away some money on a promo advertising Big Bang will be returning on Monday as well as promoting The Voice, Love Child and 20 to 1.
    Now that promo will have to be junked.

  3. It should also be on @ 7:30pm on 9 so the whole family can sit down and watch together. Starting at 8:30 is too late as it would finish past 10:30
