Green Day to headline UN-backed global climate concert in San Francisco.

L.A.— Taking place on Tuesday at the renowned Fillmore in San Francisco, Green Day will be the headlining act at a worldwide climate concert that is supported by the United Nations Human Rights.

With the intention of drawing attention to the injustices that are being exacerbated by climate change, the intimate event that is co-hosted by the Recording Academy is being undertaken.

Jakob Danger, son of Green Day vocalist Billie Joe Armstrong, will be the frontman for the alternative rock band Ultra Q, which will open for the show.

The concert's proceeds will be donated to climate justice projects developed by the United Nations Human Rights Organization as well as a climate fund established by MusiCares to assist musicians who are impacted by climate change.

Right This Moment, Right This Moment On Green Day, the Global Climate Alliance will be recognized for their "commitment to social justice and environmental causes," as stated in a press release concerning the organization.

"As world-renowned artists and activists, Green Day continues to leverage its major influence and platform to bring awareness to the impact of climate change on the people and the environment," Volker Turk, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, said in a statement. "There is a growing awareness of the impact that climate change is having on both the environment and the people."

A little over eight decades ago, in San Francisco, the United Nations was established with the purpose of protecting human rights and dignity in the face of calamity and crisis. "The fact that we are once again in San Francisco is a fitting conclusion," he stated.

One of the most valuable resources that humanity possesses is music. The Chief Executive Officer of the Recording Academy, Harvey Mason Jr., noted that it "moves the world." We are thankful for Green Day's unwavering commitment to the cause of social justice over the course of their whole career. On Friday at twelve o'clock noon Pacific Daylight Time, tickets will be made available for purchase through Ticketmaster.
