Foo Fighters were joined by AC/DC singer Brian Johnson during a performance of the rock anthem “Back In Black” at Global Citizen’s Vax show taping on Sunday. It will air on May 8th.
“We ain’t out the woods yet. But let me tell you, I’m a firm believer and idea that music should be shared with people,” Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl said. “Let’s work as hard as we can to make sure we can do this every night.”
Hugh Evans, founder and CEO of Global Citizen, said he wants to keep the momentum going.
“What were trying to highlight is the obvious that we should be fighting for equity,” he said. “It’s something that shouldn’t require any arithmetic. It is absolutely bleeding obvious.”
Prince Harry said at the show the vaccine needs to be distributed worldwide.
“The vaccine must be distributed to everyone everywhere,” the Duke of Sussex proclaimed. Harry and Meghan Markle are raising money for the vaccine-sharing program COVAX, which seeks to raise $19 billion to pay for the vaccines for medical workers worldwide.
“We cannot rest or truly recover until there is fair distribution to every corner of the world. The virus does not respect borders and access to the vaccine cannot be determined by geography.”
