Halsey Joins Zedd’s ACLU Benefit Show

Halsey Is Joining Zedd's ACLU Benefit Show featureHalsey is one of several big names that have been announced for a new benefit show. Organized by Zedd, the show will benefit the American Civil Liberties Union, which has been working overtime to challenge President Donald Trump’s executive orders like the Muslim Ban. Zedd has put together a lineup that also features Tinashe, Daya, Skrillex and more.

Unfortunately, he couldn’t get some of the stars he originally tried to recruit. While Macklemore is on board, Zedd couldn’t get Camila Cabello, who has written about her own experience as a member of an immigrant family, for the show despite reaching out publicly.

The concert is called “Welcome!” and tagged as “Phase 1,” hinting that there could be more phases coming soon. The first one will happen on April 3 at the Staples Center in L.A.

See the official poster for the show below.
