THE Legendary Rolling Stones will join the fight to end Coronavirus by taking part in ‘One World: Together at Home’ broadcast special programme this weekend, in support of the global citizen and the World Health Organisation.
Although it’s unclear whether the group will perform together, remotely, via Zoom or other another platform, the organiser – Global Citizen – has confirmed that the Rolling Stones’ core quartet – Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood – will all be taking part.
“We are honoured to be invited to be part of the ‘One World: Together at Home‘ broadcast – from our homes in isolation,” the group said in a joint statement, calling the broadcast “a fantastic event with Global Citizen in the fight against Covid-19.”
