‘The Concert for Valor’ will honor troops on Veterans Day
Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, Bruce Springsteen and Metallica are among the big names slated to perform for America’s veterans at “The Concert for Valor,” which HBO will air next month. A pack of other artists will also lend their talents to the performance, including Eminem, Rihanna, Carrie Underwood and comedian John Oliver.
Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg and Meryl Streep will also appear at the show, with Hanks serving as one of the show’s executive producers.
“The Concert for Valor represents a significant and historic opportunity to demonstrate our country’s potential to come together as a nation, and do right by those who have done so much for us,” said Howard Schultz, chairman, president and CEO of Starbucks, which is sponsoring the event.
The show will happen on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, at the National Mall in Washington, D.C. and air on HBO starting at 7 p.m. ET. Non-subscribers will be able to watch the concert, as well as HBO regulars.
