Green Day will headline a United Nations Human Rights-backed global climate concert on April 2 at the Fillmore in San Francisco.

The intimate event, which is co-hosted by the Recording Academy, aims to bring attention to the inequalities exasperated by climate change.

Ultra Q, an alternative rock band fronted by Billie Joe Armstrong’s son Jakob Danger, will open.

Proceeds from the concert will go to United Nations Human Rights climate justice initiatives and a MusiCares climate fund to benefit musicians affected by climate change.

The Right Here, Right Now Global Climate Alliance will honor Green Day for their “long-standing commitment to social justice and environmental causes,” according to a press release.


“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 Türk, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights said in a statement.

“The United Nations was founded in San Francisco almost 80 years ago to safeguard human rights and dignity from crisis and tragedy. It is only fitting that we are back in San Francisco.”

“Music is one of humanity’s greatest resources. It moves the world,” Harvey Mason jr., CEO of the Recording Academy added. “And we are grateful for Green Day’s longstanding dedication to promoting social justice.”

Tickets for Green Day’s April 2 show at The Fillmore go on sale via LiveNation.com on March 29, at 12 p.m. Tickets will not be available from The Fillmore’s box office.
