Lady Gaga, Bono and The Edge, Usher to play live at Bill Clinton Foundation show
The charity celebration takes place in Los Angeles next month
The show will take place at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on October 15 and is formally titled A Decade of Difference: A Concert Celebrating 10 Years of the William J Clinton Foundation.
The former US president's charity researches and raises money for a number of global issues, including poverty alleviation, climate change, health, and education. Of the one-off show, Clinton has said:
I am proud that some of today's most influential performers are coming together to raise awareness about the work of my Foundation.
In the past decade, commitments to my Clinton Global Initiative have improved the lives of more than 300 million people around the world. We've lowered the cost of AIDS and HIV treatment, combated climate change, strengthened economies, increased access to education and healthcare, provided financing and mentoring for small businesses.
More performers will be added to the bill at a later date. The concert will be shown live on Yahoo!.
