In the wake of Donald Trump’s inauguration and executive order blocking immigration from seven majority-Muslim countries, many celebrities have voiced their support for immigrant and overall human rights.
Many celebrities such as Sia, Judd Apatow, Rosie O’Donnell and more have already voiced their disagreement with Trump’s policies and have vowed to match donations to the American Civil Liberties Union, aka the ACLU, in order to fight what they believe are unjust policies put in place by President Trump.
With only 24 hours’ notice, Russian-born and German-raised EDM producer, Zedd, gathered a group of superstars including Skrillex, Macklemore, Halsey, Incubus, Imagine Dragons, Tinashe, and Daya (with more to come) to play a fundraiser concert on April 3rd at Los Angeles’ Staples Center.
The “Clarity” producer said that “As an immigrant myself I feel the need to stand up against the tyranny that threatens our basic human rights,” which is why he is putting on this concert.
This concert, appropriately named “Welcome!”, will feature a wide range of music including acoustic sets and special collaborations between the attending performers.
Most importantly though, all profits from this show of a lifetime will be donated to the ACLU in order to help fund the fight against unjust policies.
Tickets go on sale on February 9th and if I was thinking of going, I would not sleep on scooping up some tickets as they will not last long with this lineup of all-stars that will only keep getting more epic. May the odds be ever in your favor.
