(ETX Daily Up) – New names appear in the lineup of Global Citizen Live. Those who will participate in the Parisian version of this concert organized on September 25 for the benefit of the planet and the fight against poverty will have the chance to see Elton Jonh, Stormzy or Charlie Puth alongside the Black Eyes Peas, Christine and The Queens and Ed Sheeran.
Cyndi Lauper, Jennifer Lopez, Lizzo … Here is a non-exhaustive list of the artists who will participate in the “Global Citizen Globe”, a musical event of an unprecedented length and scale, since the concert will last 24 hours and will be located in 39 cities of the world.
In Paris, while names of globally successful artists such as Ed Sheeran and Black Eyes Peas have already been communicated last month, the list is growing with names unveiled this Tuesday and no less prestigious. We learn that the immense Elton John, but also the singers Charlie Puth and Stormzy will participate in the event.
The concerts will be simultaneously recorded in cities across all continents (Lagos, Rio de Janeiro, New York, London, Seoul, Los Angeles, Sydney) and will be broadcast on ABC, ABC News Live, BBC, FX, iHeartRadio, Hulu, YouTube, TIME or even Twitter. In France, the TF1 group will broadcast the event. Those who wish to attend the free concerts will however have to reserve their place (s) via this link.
Global Citizen is a movement that aims to end extreme poverty in the world by 2030. The September 25 concert, which is part of a campaign, will take place at the same time as the Assembly and a few months before the G20 and COP26 meetings.
Plant and preserve a billion trees, donate a billion vaccines for the poorest countries, provide meals for the 41 million people on the verge of famine … Here are some examples of the demands made by the campaign Global Citizen Live, which urges world leaders, corporations and foundations to stand up for the planet and end global poverty.
