World AIDS Day Concert — Live Stream
The performance is presented by RED, Bono’s organization that he co-founded in 2006 to get involved in the fight against AIDS.
However, following Bono’s injuries from a bike accident, “U2 Minus 1” will be taking the stage in honor of World AIDS Day. Adam Clayton, The Edge and Larry Mullen Jr. will be joined by Bruce Springsteen and Coldplay’s Chris Martin. The legends will take turns as the frontman performing U2 hits.
Additionally, Kanye and Carrie Underwood will also take the stage. So we’re sure it will be an epic night, and we know that Bono is definitely bummed he can’t attend.
“This year is a World AIDS Day like no other,” Bono said, speaking from Dublin. “The world reached a tipping point in the fight against AIDS – more people were newly added to life-saving treatment than were newly infected with the virus. A lot of people are calling it the beginning of the end of AIDS. We wouldn’t be at this point without American leadership, people from the left and the right. Today, 13 million people have access to life-saving treatment, up from 300,000 just over ten years ago. Americans don’t know the role they’ve played in this fight. Tonight’s event is to inform them and thank them.”
The concert starts at 7:30 EST at Duffy Square on Broadway between 46th and 47th street. Luckily, you can watch the whole show above. Will you be watching, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
