But if you can’t join us in person — never fear! You can watch the whole event live online from the comfort of your sofa.

Read on to find out exactly why you should that, and how. 

1. It’s *the* biggest cross-over event. 

Come on, where else are you going to be able to see Maya Jama and Naughty Boy on the same stage as presidents and prime ministers. 

Global Citizen Live is a unique combination of activism and entertainment — and you’ve probably not seen anything like it!

2. We’ve got artists up to our eyeballs. 

With eight different artists performing we’ve literally got something for everyone. Emeli Sandé, Professor Green, Naughty Boy, Gabrielle Aplin, Little Simz, and Kojo Funds are going to be strutting their stuff all over the stage. 

And if music’s not your thing, tune in and check out Hussain Manawer’s spoken word poetry, and the comedy stylings of Luisa Omielan. 

3. Be part of the movement. 

Hundreds of thousands of global citizens have been taking actions around the world in the run-up to the Commonwealth Summit in London — which is the whole reason we’re hosting Global Citizen in Live in London! 

As well as being able to watch the whole show when you tune in, you’ll have the chance to take action as we go. We’ll have all sorts of ways you can take action on gender inequality, malnutrition, preventable diseases, and more, while you watch. 

Every time a pledge is made on the Global Citizen Live stage, even more lives will change forever.

4. We have some very exciting announcements to make. 

No spoilers, but some very important people will be announcing some very important things on the Global Citizen Live stage. It’s all very hush-hush so you’ll have to tune in to find out what. 


5. Get inspired. 

Global Citizen has a history of bringing to our stage some of the world’s most incredible human beings. 

Malala, Michelle Obama, and Justin Trudeau have all stood up in front of our crowds before, and we have some equally impressive people to introduce you to in London. 

Get ready to be extremely motivated.
