A who’s-who of music superstars will be part of the day-long, online Stand Up for Ukraine rally on Friday, April 8, part of Global Citizen’s ongoing campaign to support the war-torn nation as well as other countries in need of aid. Among the massive list of artists contributing performances and appearances throughout the day will be Bruce Springsteen, Metallica, U2, Elton John, Jon Bon Jovi, Pearl Jam, The Weeknd, Billie Eilish, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Billy Joel, Stevie Wonder, Jon Batiste, Green Day, Ozzy Osbourne, Weezer, Radiohead, Celine Dion and many more. The virtual rally runs a day before a “pledging summit” to aid displaced Ukrainians, organized by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and European Commission President Ursula von Der Leyen.
