Part of an all-star line-up for performances in Lagos, Paris and New York City on September 25, the world’s biggest musicians rally for citizen support in demanding that governments, major organizations and philanthropists come together to defend our planet and protect those threatened by poverty.
In Paris, Sheeran will be joined by Doja Cat, DJ Snake, H.E.R., Black Eyed Peas, Christine and the Queens, while Femi Kuti, Davido, Tiwa Savage and Made Kuti will be on stage in Lagos, Nigeria.
All of the late-September performances have been timed to coincide with the UN General Assembly and the G20 and COP26 Meetings that will take place later this year.
In a statement about this years event, Katie Hill, Head of Music, Entertainment and Artist Relations, Global Citizen, said: “Over the last year and a half, we’ve seen music bring communities together and inspire action during one of the most challenging times of our generation. We’re excited to join these incredible artists to unite people across the globe on September 25th as we hold world leaders and business leaders accountable to rectify the damage caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. As we carefully resume Global Citizen’s live events, we couldn’t be more grateful to each of these artists for donating their time and performances to make an impact through this urgent campaign.”
