The Saturday August 21 “We Love NYC: The Homecoming Concert” on Central Park’s Great Lawn is designed as a celebration of New York’s post-shutdown return to cultural life. The concert will begin at 5pm ET and air live worldwide exclusively on CNN, CNN International, CNN en Español, and unauthenticated on CNNGo.

“There is absolutely no place more special than Central Park to celebrate the reopening of New York City,” said Davis. “I consider the Mayor’s request a true honor; and, with Live Nation, we are curating an unforgettable show befitting of this historic occasion.”

Covid vaccinations will be required to attend the concert, de Blasio said.

Free tickets, as well as VIP tickets for purchase, will be released to the public in batches at nyc.gov/HomecomingWeek starting on August 2.

The concert will be the highlight of a weeklong, citywide celebration, which also will include smaller concerts in each of the other four boroughs.
