The Global Citizen Festival: NYC was hosted by Bollywood star and Global Citizen Ambassador Priyanka Chopra Jonas, who introduced Metallica as “the biggest rock band in the world”.
Metallica debuts with eight-song set “creeping Death” and turned it off “master of Puppets”, which has reached a new peak of popularity after being included in the fourth season of the hit Netflix series ‘Stranger Things’. The song’s 1986 popularity landed it on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the first time in the band’s long career.
Anyway, Metallica Played These Songs
01. Creep Death
02. Bell Toll for whom
03. Enter the Sandman
04. Sad but true
05. The Unforgiven
06. Wherever I Can Walk
07. Nothing Else Matters (with Mickey Guyton)
08. Master of Puppets
The funny thing is that, although you can see seven of the eight songs from the show, “Nothing Else Matters” has been removed from the video in which it is featured. Will it have anything to do with their special guest?
You can watch Metallica’s performance from hour 9, minute 8 of the video.
Since beginning in Central Park in 2012, the Global Citizen Festival has become the longest-running global campaign against extreme poverty. The event unites millions of voices promoted by the world’s greatest artists, calling on world leaders to act now.
Globally, the disproportionate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has pushed nearly 100 million more people into extreme poverty and is reversing recent trends in inequality reduction, resulting in the loss of at least three years of progress. If immediate action is not taken now, this blow will deepen even more. The Russian invasion of Ukraine has exacerbated the situation, with 323 million people now starving and 1.2 billion living in nations facing some form of food, energy and financial crisis. If we don’t act now, up to 200 million more people could be affected by the situation.
Hugh Evans, co-founder and CEO of Global Citizen, says the following: “Decades of systemic and political failures have driven humanity into a rapidly worsening convergent crisis: climate, hunger, health, war and conflict. The most marginalized populations are paying the price for the steady inaction of our leaders and millions The future of our planet is now at stake. We demand that governments fulfill their climate finance promises. We demand relief from the debt that unfairly cripples economies. And we call for action now, while upending our collective trajectory. There’s still time to change.”
