 NEW YORK (AP) – Eminem, Bruce Springsteen, Metallica and Rihanna are among the artists booked for a televised live concert from the National Mall in Washington next month to raise awareness of issues concerning veterans.

The Concert for Valour is planned for 7 p.m. on Veteran’s Day, November 11. It will be televised by HBO, which will provide its signal free to non-subscribers.

Jamie Foxx, Dave Grohl, comic John Oliver, Carrie Underwood and the Zac Brown Band also are scheduled to perform, with appearances by Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg. Other participants will be announced in the coming weeks.

Starbucks chairman Howard Schultz is spearheading the event. The concert is free, but sponsors hope to direct fans to ways they can volunteer or donate money to causes helping war veterans.

“They’ve stepped up,” Schultz said. “Now it’s our turn.”

The concert will feature stories from a book Schultz has written about veterans’ experiences.
