After a successful outing in India for its 2016 edition which brought down Coldplay, as well as a virtual concert and broadcast to encourage Covid-19 vaccinations around the world earlier this year with Vax Live: A Concert to Reunite the World, tomorrow's Global Citizen Live concert will spotlight the immediacy of addressing social causes affecting individuals worldwide.
