METALLICA To Play Global Citizen Festival Next Month

Happeing in New York.


Metallica will hit the stage in New York City's Central Park on September 24 to play the Global Citizen festival. The festival will include performances by Charlie Puth, The Jonas Brothers, Måneskin, Mariah Carey, Mickey Guyton, and Rosalía. The festival will be a free event and will be hosted by Priyanka Chopra Jonas. Free tickets are available here.

Global Citizen Festival will be livestreamed for free by ABC, ABC News Live, FX, Hulu, iHeartRadio, TimesLIVE, Twitter, YouTube and more, as well as broadcast live on ABC News Live. A special is also set for September 25 on ABC titled the Global Citizen Festival: Take Action NOW.

"Decades of systemic and political failures have led humanity into the midst of converging and rapidly deteriorating crises — climate, hunger, health, war and conflict," said Hugh Evans, co-founder and CEO of Global Citizen. "The most marginalized populations are paying the price of the stagnant inaction of our leaders, and now millions of lives, and the future of our planet, are at stake.

"We refuse to just stand by and watch! We refuse to accept the starvation of multitudes when solutions are readily at hand. We demand a secure future for girls everywhere. We demand governments keep their promises on climate funding. We demand relief from debts unjustly crushing economies. And we demand action NOW, while there's still time to change our collective trajectory."
