METALLICA, EDDIE VEDDER To Perform At This Year's GLOBAL CITIZEN Festival

METALLICA and PEARL JAM singer Eddie Vedder are among the artists who will perform at this year's Global Citizen festival at Central Park in New York City on September 24.

Free tickets to the event, which partners again this year with Gucci's Chime For Change campaign, can be earned by "completing actions to help promote and ensure that equitable and quality education is available to all, particularly refugee children and access for girls and women," according to a press release.

"Over the last five years, Global Citizens around the world have taken more than 6 million actions in the fight against extreme poverty — actions that are set to affect the lives of over 650 million of the world's most marginalized people," says festival CEO Hugh Evans in a statement. "This year's festival — and this incredible lineup — is an annual touch point to hold our world leaders to account on their commitments to solve the world's biggest problems."

The 2016 Global Citizen festival will broadcast live on MSNBC and stream on MSNBC.com as well as YouTube. Audio will be streamed on iHeartRadio.com and on the iHeartRadio app.
