Eminem, Jamie Foxx, Rihanna, Bruce Springsteen, Metallica, and Carrie Underwood are all headed to Washington for a first-of-its-kind Veterans Day concert just steps from the Capitol.


The “Concert for Valor” will be hosted by HBO and Starbucks, the two companies announced on Thursday. Among the other entertainers and presenters expected at the Nov. 11 live event on the National Mall: Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, the Zac Brown Band, Steven Spielberg, Dave Grohl, and John Oliver.

Former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and former Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Michael Mullen are serving as advisers for the concert, and will assist with veterans outreach.

The goal, according to a news release, is “raising awareness for veterans service organizations dedicated to education, wellness, re-employment and reintegration.” HBO says the free concert will be offered to all viewers, not just subscribers of its premium channel.

Last year, Starbucks announced that it would hire at least 10,000 military veterans and spouses of veterans within five years.
