Concept

Hugh Evans, founder and CEO of Global Citizen, spoke of the initiative behind the concert, "What were trying to highlight is the obvious: that we should be fighting for equity," and added, "It's something that shouldn't require any arithmetic. It is absolutely bleeding obvious." According to an ABC7 report, so far, $53.8 million from various philanthropic and corporate projects have aided to procure nearly 10.3 million doses, going beyond the goal of the Vax Live campaign.

The event has been pre-taped in SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, and the report says that all the audience members were fully vaccinated; media and production crew needed to be negative for Covid-19 to be able to enter the stadium.
