METALLICA, OZZY OSBOURNE, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS To Perform At 'Global Goal Live' Concert In September 2020

METALLICA is one of the artists who will perform during Global Citizen's 10-hour "Live Aid"-style concert event happening on September 26, 2020 on five continents: Central Park in New York, Lagos in Nigeria, and to-be-announced cities in Latin America, Europe, and Asia. The event will be the culmination of a yearlong campaign dubbed "Global Goal Live: The Possible Dream" that will benefit United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals with aims at ending extreme poverty and tackling climate change.

METALLICA said in statement: "We're excited to announce that we'll be appearing live at one of these shows along with Billie Eilish, COLDPLAY, Eddie Vedder, MUSE, Ozzy Osbourne, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, Pharrell Williams, and many, many more who will fan out around the globe."

Among the co-hosts for the event are Deborra-Lee Furness, Hugh Jackman, Idris Elba, Jill Vedder, Katie Holmes, Rachel Brosnahan, Trevor Noah and Uzo Aduba.

Next year marks the ten-year countdown to achieve the United Nations Global Goals, a roadmap to end extreme poverty and reduce inequality by 2030. Global Citizen engages with more than 25 million advocates and activists each month who are using their collective voice to help achieve these objectives. Through the platform, Global Citizens learn about the systemic causes of extreme poverty, take action on those issues, and earn rewards for their actions. They can redeem those awards to attend Global Citizen events and experiences that take place all over the world.

More details about the "Global Goal Live" events — including performers, lineups and locations, broadcast information, additional events, and more — will be shared over the coming months. Starting today, people everywhere can start taking action to call on world leaders to fulfill their promises.
