The concert is due to take place in January next year at stadiums in London and Los Angeles, while the choice of date is set to coincide with the 40th anniversary of Live Aid according to The Mirror.

Following the inaugural event, the article added that the concert is set to take place every two years.

Further acts that have been approached to perform include Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, U2, Imagine Dragons, The Eagles, Bruce Springsteen, Ed Sheeran, Sia, The Weeknd, Tiesto, Billie Eilish and more.

Sources say the concert is set to be produced by ITV’s creative director Lee Connolly, along with former BBC Radio broadcast director Paul Robinson, as well as Island Records.

The report added that money from the tickets will be donated to a new Climate Aid charity to fund large-scale investments to help reduce emissions.
