This is your last chance to get FREE tickets to Global Citizen Live in Central Park, NYC’s biggest annual outdoor concert, with a blockbuster line-up including Coldplay, Billie Eilish, Camila Cabello, Jennifer Lopez, Lizzo, Meek Mill, and Shawn Mendes.
You have until Sept. 19 to apply for tickets to attend Global Citizen Live on Saturday, Sept.25, on the Great Lawn in Central Park.
In addition to the featured superstars, there are special guest appearances by Alessia Cara, Burna Boy, Cyndi Lauper, Jon Batiste, and Lang Lang.
New this year is that the NYC concert is part of an unprecedented 24-hour broadcast and livestream concerts taking place across six continents.
Usually, it’s the biggest concert of the year.
But NYC celebrated its re-opening in August with a week of concerts in all five boroughs, including the big bash in Central Park on August 19 that featured Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon, Andrea Boccelli, Jennifer Hudson, LL Cool J and Earth, Wind and Fire.
Unfortunately, the concert was cut short by a lightening storm that ushered in Hurricane Henri barreling up the East Coast, followed a week later by a horrendous rainstorm and massive flooding along the East Coast from Hurricane Ida.
Global Citizen Live events and performances will encourage world leaders to take action on the most urgent, interrelated threats hitting those in poverty the hardest — climate change, vaccine equity, and famine.
This once-in-a-generation, worldwide event will air on Saturday, Sept. 25, on ABC, ABC News Live, BBC, FX, iHeartRadio, Hulu, YouTube, TIME, Twitter, and more.
As with NYC Homecoming Week, all the artists at Global Citizen Live are donating their time and talent — live or filmed in advance.
Take a deep breath because this is a long list –
Adam Lambert, Alessia Cara, Andrea Bocelli, Angélique Kidjo, Billie Eilish, Black Eyed Peas, BTS, Burna Boy, Camila Cabello, Christine and the Queens, Coldplay, Cyndi Lauper, Davido, Demi Lovato, Doja Cat, DJ Snake, Duran Duran, Ed Sheeran, Femi Kuti, Green Day, H.E.R., Hugh Jackman & Deborra-lee Furness, Jennifer Lopez, Jon Batiste, Keith Urban, Lang Lang, Lizzo, Lorde, The Lumineers, Made Kuti, Meek Mill, Metallica, Rag’n’Bone Man, Ricky Martin, Shawn Mendes, Tiwa Savage, The Weeknd, and Usher.
They are performing from locations in Lagos, Rio de Janeiro, New York City, Paris, London, Seoul, Los Angeles, Sydney, and more to be announced.
As in past years, the only way to get your FREE tickets is to earn them by completing easy and educational actions.
All the tasks are designed to make us more aware of global poverty, human trafficikng and other social issues – and, more importantly, start doing something about it.
Tasks can be as simple as sending an email to a politician, or taking a re-usable shopping bag to the grocery store instead of taking home yet another throwaway plastic bag.
How to Get FREE Tickets to Global Citizen Live in NYC
There are four opportunities to earn a chance to win tickets to attend Global Citizen Live in New York.
First, you’ll need to download the Global Citizen app and create an account.
Having an account will allow you to take actions such as signing petitions, sharing messages on social media and writing letters to politicians, to earn festival points that can be used to enter ticket drawings.
