Katy Perry, One Direction, and Ed Sheeran are among the 100 artists lending their support to poverty relief campaign Global Citizen by offering free concert tickets.

The pop stars have signed up to the Global Poverty Project and Global Citizen Tickets initiative, which encourages fans to build up points for actions they take to combat extreme hardship and then exchange their points to buy tickets for gigs and festivals.

Katy said: "This is a simple, smart, modern initiative with potential for huge impact."

"Global Citizen provides people with doable opportunities to make the world a better place, and rewards them for doing so."

The scheme already runs in Australia, New Zealand and America and will launch in the UK soon.

Emma Banks, chair of the UK Global Citizen Tickets initiative committee, said: "The Global Citizen Tickets initiative in the UK marks the culmination of a tremendous amount of hard work and foresight."

"I have no doubt that we will match the successes that this initiative has already enjoyed in the USA, something that could only have been achieved by our industry uniting for this very worthwhile cause."

Thanks for the link! I've signed up with Global Citizen and started earning points. It isn't difficult to do, you need 20 points to enter the draw for any listed PWT show (or any other listed), and I've got the first five by signing an online petition. And Global Citizen, apart from this, seems a great project.

I saw this on Facebook yesterday. Such a good idea to spread awareness :)

I did my part and got over 20 points and tried for a ticket in Nottingham, UK!
