What Was It Like at Global Citizen Live in London? These Photos Say It All

On Tuesday night, thousands of global citizens from around the world descended on O2 Academy Brixton for a night of entertainment-fuelled activism, to mark the arrival of the Commonwealth Summit in London. 

Artists, activists, and world leaders took to the stage side by side for Global Citizen Live, joining together to stamp out extreme poverty. 

It was an emotional rollercoaster of a night — from Emeli Sandé and Professor Green hitting us with a sensational duet, to former Secretary-General of the United Nations Kofi Annan honouring the legacy of Nelson Mandela.
