Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters, Soundgarden, Black Sabbath and Gotye are among the dozens of acts joining the Global Citizen Tickets Initiative, a new program launched on Thursday (May 2nd) which is designed to incentive social activism with concert tickets. According to, fans can now register at, where by taking a variety of social actions, ranging from signing petitions to calling their representatives, they can earn points to win free concert tickets.

The effort, part of the Global Poverty Project (GPP), will encourage thousands to take action on issues such as extreme poverty, women’s empowerment, education, disease and more.

The Global Citizen Tickets Initiative is the brainchild of Pearl Jam manager Kelly Curtis and Global Poverty Project CEO Hugh Evans, who produced the Global Citizen Festival in New York’s Central Park last year. Fans who attended that show earned tickets through activism in a similar manner.

Pearl Jam guitarist Stone Gossard praised Curtis for “spearheading this thoughtful strategy. It reflects the DNA of our band and business, and expands it to respond to some of the greatest inequities and challenges facing humanity.”

Other artists signing onto the Initiative include Bruno Mars, Tim McGraw, Usher, Ke$ha, Neil Young, Dixie Chicks, One Direction, Tony Bennett, Beyonce, Bruce Springsteen, Depeche Mode, Dierks Bentley, Heart, Jay-Z, Kings Of Leon, Linkin Park, No Doubt and many others.
