Queen alongside Adam Lambert to headline Global Citizen Festival 2019

Legendary band Queen alongside Adam Lambert is set to headline this year’s Global Citizen Festival, which will be taking place in New York’s Central Park later next month.

Held annually since 2012, the event aims to eliminate extreme poverty, as world leaders gather in New York for the UN General Assembly, Global Citizen distributes tickets for free to supporters who pledge to take actions such as sending letters to their governments in support of development aid.

“After next year we will have only ten short years to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals,” said Hugh Evans, the CEO of Global Citizen. “The policies and progress that we make this year, and into 2020, will determine whether we successfully eradicate extreme poverty by 2030, and failure is not an option for the world’s poor.”

Prominent artistes, including the likes of Pharrell Williams, Alicia Keys, OneRepublic, H.E.R. and Carole King are scheduled to perform among other great musicians this year. The festival will be hosted by Australian acting couple Hugh Jackman and Deborra-lee Furness, with co-hosts Forest Whitaker and Rami Malek.
