Artists including The Killers, Journey and Carlos Santana have joined the lineup for New York City’s upcoming Homecoming Concert, taking place August 21 in Central Park.

The all-star event, officially dubbed We Love NYC: The Homecoming Concert, is meant to celebrate the “rebirth” of the Big Apple amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Other newly added acts include Elvis Costello, Patti Smith, LL Cool J, Wyclef Jean, Earth, Wind & Fire, Cynthia Erivo, Kane Brown and Polo G. They join the previously announced Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon and Jennifer Hudson.

The Killers, by the way, recently released a collaboration with Springsteen: a reworking of the band’s 2008 song “A Dustland Fairytale.” The lineup also features Rob Thomas, suggesting perhaps he’ll join Santana for a rendition of their collaborative hit, “Smooth.”

Free tickets to The Homecoming Concert will be available starting next Monday, August 2, at 10 a.m. ET via Attendees must show proof of COVID-19 vaccination.

The concert will also air on CNN.
