The Global Citizen Music Festival featured several performances from around the world, with the main performances taking place in Lagos, Rio de Janeiro, New York, Paris, London, Seoul, Los Angeles and Sydney. Sir Elton performed at the festival’s Paris site, while Lauper’s set took place in New York.
