The event will be hosted by Keegan-Michael Key and Debra Messing and will also feature Michael Blivins, Carole King, Ben Harper, James Taylor, Kal Penn, Connie Britton and Jaime Camil in addition to the aforementioned artists.
Ben Harper has been active as part of the background vocals on Ringo Starr’s new single “Here’s to the Nights.” Harper also recently worked with many others together with punk artist Patti Smith on the recent cover of her track “People Have the Power.”
Fall Out Boy prepares for the Hella Mega Tour alongside Green Day and Weezer, who were originally supposed to tour together in 2020, but the tour was delayed due to the pandemic. These triple legends will hopefully kick off their tour at the new date July 17, 2021.
