This year, the “Stand Up to Cancer” benefit concert is back with perhaps its most star-studded show yet.
Clear Channel radio stations have supported the cause in past years, but this is the first time any radio partner has galvanized all of Taylor Swift, Coldplay, Alicia Keys and Tim McGraw, all of whom are among the performers that will be featured on the Sept. 7 “Stand Up to Cancer” concert. The show will be broadcast on all the major networks and numerous cable channels.
The third SU2C primetime television fundraising special will air from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. on ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC as well as E!, ENCORE, HBO, HBO Latino, ION Television, LMN, Logo, MLB Network, mun2, Palladia, SHOWTIME, Smithsonian Channel, Starz, Style, TBS and VH1.
Celebrities from film, television and sports will speak to help build public support for research that accelerates the delivery of new therapies. The lineup includes Justin Timberlake, Gwyneth Paltrow, Julia Roberts, Matt Damon, Michael Douglas, Jessica Biel, Samuel L. Jackson, Jeremy Renner, Seth Rogen, Emma Stone, and Katie Couric.
