‘And Metallica’: Global Citizen concert announces 2016 lineup with Rihanna, Kendrick, and more


The annual Global Citizen concert is returning to New York’s Central Park this fall, and as usual, it’s quite a lineup.

This year’s awareness event, designed to eradicate hunger around the world, goes down September 24, and features an all-star slate of performers, including Rihanna, Kendrick Lamar, Selena Gomez, Major Lazer… and Metallica.

We don’t know why that “And Metallica”, as shown on the event poster, is so funny to us, but hey, whatever man.


Regardless, the undercard is solid as well: Coldplay’s Chris Martin, Eddie Vedder, Usher, Ellie Goulding and more, with hosts like Chelsea Handler, Neil Patrick Harris, and our old friend Priyanka Chopra.

Full lineup is below. Get more info on the festival — and learn just how to get tickets — here.
