Global Citizen Live: all you need to know about the concert event broadcast Saturday on TMC

Music to change the world? The NGO Global Citizen creates the event this Saturday, September 25 by organizing an incredible series of concerts around the world. The concept is simple: for 24 hours, all time zones will be occupied by live or delayed performances, given from several major cities around the world such as New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas or Seoul. In France, it is the Champ de Mars in Paris which hosts an attractive poster with Ed Sheeran, Christine and the Queens, the Black Eyed Peas, Charlie Puth, Doja Cat, Angélique Kidjo, the soprano Fatma Saïd and Sir Elton John in person. .

Suffering from a hip, the British icon wanted at all costs to participate in the concert, before undergoing surgery in a few days in New Orleans. “I don’t want to drop a charity“, explained the interpreter of” I’m Still Standing “who will play five songs in front of the 20,000 spectators who obtained free tickets by signing petitions or by sharing messages on social networks. A show that will be broadcast exclusively on French television on TMC from 9:05 pm It will also be visible on Apple Music, Apple TV, YouTube and Twitter.

Last spring, he organized in Los Angeles the “Vax Live”, a concert in favor of vaccination against Covid-19. Jennifer Lopez or the Foo Fighters were on stage while the US President, Joe Biden, Pope Francis, or actors Ben Affleck and Sean Penn, had delivered video messages.

Among them, “climate change, vaccine equity and starvation“. For more information, visit GlobalCitizenLive.org.
