CBS RADIO today announced the fourth annual WE CAN SURVIVE concert, the star-laden event celebrating music with powerful performances by some of today’s hottest artists, all in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In his first concert since Super Bowl 50, Bruno Mars headlines WE CAN SURVIVE, along with appearances by Ariana Grande, Charlie Puth, G-Eazy, Meghan Trainor, OneRepublic and Pitbull on Saturday, Oct. 22, at the renowned Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. 97.1 AMP Radio’s morning show host Carson Daly shared the news with the station’s listeners today.
“The star power of this year’s line-up is a testament to the ever growing popularity of WE CAN SURVIVE,” said Chris Oliviero, Executive Vice President of Programming, CBS RADIO. “Now in its fourth year, CBS RADIO is proud to bring together today’s biggest artists and their passionate fans in raising awareness for such a worthy cause, all at the iconic Hollywood Bowl.”
Since the concert’s inaugural debut in 2013, WE CAN SURVIVE has continued to sell out every year. In addition, the concert has generated more than 430 million social media impressions over the past two years, and it has become well-known for surprise artist appearances, like Rihanna in 2015 and Jennifer Lopez in 2014.
