Another free event is coming to the Nation’s Capital, Global Citizen’s Earth Day 2015 benefit concert will be taking place on April 18, 2015 on the grounds of the Washington Monument from 11am-7pm.
Marking the 45th anniversary of Earth Day, Global Citizen 2015 Earth Day comes during a pivotal time to protect the planet and ensure that world leaders address key issues facing the next generation. Timed to coincide with the spring meetings of the World Bank Group and the International Monetary Fund, Global Citizen 2015 Earth Day will bring together global policymakers, finance ministers, environment and development NGOs, industry executives and high-profile artists.
The concert is to be hosted by Will.I.Am and Soledad O’Brien, with performances by No Doubt, Usher, Fall Out Boy, Mary J. Blige, Train, and My Morning Jacket, and special guests Common and D’Banj. As with all free events that happen in Washington, they get packed pretty quick, so if you want to go to this AND get a good viewing spot, we suggest that you arrive early and take the Metro subway system as there will be street closures.
