Global Citizen, which times its annual events to coincide with gatherings of world leaders, works with governments and nongovernmental organizations toward the “Sustainable Development Goals” just adopted by the United Nations. The 17 goals were listed on the stage backdrops; they include ending extreme poverty and hunger, supporting affordable clean energy and gender equality, and taking action on global warming and better sanitation worldwide.

After an entire concert of exceedingly well-groomed pop and rock - the Global Citizen Festival included Coldplay, Beyonce and Ed Sheeran, Pearl Jam took the stage to provide the more unkempt thrills of a long-running rock band giving familiar songs an improvisational attack: the punky roar of “Mind Your Manners” and “Do the Evolution,” the surges from introspection to shout in “Given to Fly” and “Better Man,” a psychedelic guitar excursion in “Alive.” The crowd sang along for a reverent version of John Lennon’s “Imagine.” -Original
