A slew of stars including Cher, Bon Jovi, the Black Eyed Peas, Dave Matthews, Ben Platt and others are set to perform or appear at an “I Will Vote” concert event on Sunday night in support of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

Lin-Manuel Miranda, Maren Morris and Pink are among the special guests also appearing, the campaign said.

The stars will appear from a variety of locations. Their appearances are a mix of live and pre-recorded segments. 

Fans are able to donate any amount of money to the Joe Biden Victory Fund to attend the event, which will take place on Sunday at 8 p.m. ET.

The concert marks perhaps the biggest celebrity-fueled push so far for Biden, 77, in the lead-up to the Nov. 3 presidential election. Several stars have lent their support to already with virtual appearances made amid the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic.

Earlier this month, Kristen Bell and Ted Danson had a mini-The Good Place reunion when they surprised Biden phone-bank volunteers. 

Also in October, various actors from the Avengers film series reunited in support of the Democratic presidential candidate with a virtual fundraiser.

And in September, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and the other cast of HBO's Veep reunited virtually for a fundraiser for the Democratic Party of Wisconsin and the Biden-Harris presidential campaign.
