GLOBAL CITIZEN CONCERT GOES TRULY GLOBAL

One year after Saturday’s Global Citizen Festival concert is staged in New York’s Central Park, the international advocacy organization Global Citizen and global CEO advisory firm Teneo plan to stage a 10-hour global broadcast event taking place on five continents. The concerts, spearheaded by a who's who of top-tier music execs, are to raise awareness and money to end poverty, battle climate change and promote racial and gender equality.

Among the acts that have already committed to performing in 2020 are Alicia Keys, Billie Eilish, Coldplay, H.E.R., Metallica, Miley Cyrus,  Shawn Mendes, Ozzy Osbourne, Pharrell Williams and Red Hot Chili Peppers. Saturday’s concert in Central Park features Queen + Adam Lambert, Williams, Keys, OneRepublic, H.E.R, French Montana and Carole King.

Staged in partnership with Live Nation and Diversified Production Services, MGM Worldwide Television Group will oversee next year’s global broadcast, which will be exec-produced by Mark Burnett. Ken Ehrlich Productions will be the production partner in New York.

Universal Music Group EVP Michele Anthony and UMPG Chairman & CEO Jody Gerson are leading a broad coalition of supporters from the music industry that includes UMG, WMG and Sony Music, CAA (Rob Light), WME (Samantha Kirby Yoh), Paradigm Talent Agency (Marty Diamond), The Artist Group (Marsh Vlasic), the Recording Academy, the RIAA, IFPI, the National Music Publishers Association, and the International Confederation of Music Publishers.

Global Citizen CEO Hugh Evans and Teneo CEO Declan Kelly made the announcement today as they unveiled plans for Global Goal Live: The Possible Dream, a year-long campaign to get the world back on track to achieve the United Nations Global Goals on poverty and climate change.

The campaign will call on governments, philanthropists and the private sector to provide the $350b needed annually to achieve the Global Goals in the world’s 59 poorest countries. The two groups are working alongside, and in support of, the United Nations.

“We have 10 years to end extreme poverty and tackle climate change,” Evans said at the Brooklyn event. “While we have seen significant progress, we will not be successful at our current pace. The scale of this problem—helping get 736m people out of extreme poverty—will take everyone’s participation.

“Our goal, to put it simply, is to engage every single person on the planet in this mission.”
