2020 NATIONAL MEMORIAL DAY CONCERT OVERVIEW

Tony Award-winner Joe Mantegna and Emmy Award-winner Gary Sinise will co-host a special presentation of the National Memorial Day Concert with new performances and tributes filmed around the country and some of the most iconic and powerful segments from past concerts highlighting stories of generations of ordinary Americans who stepped forward and served our country with extraordinary valor in its most challenging times. Woven throughout the program will be messages from prominent guest artists of thanks and support for those who have served and sacrificed for our nation. The 2020 National Memorial Day Concert will tribute the men and women who are doing so much for all of us in the current fight against COVID-19 and continue, for the 31st year, to honor and remember our troops, veterans, wounded warriors, all those who have given their lives for freedom, and their families.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the traditional live concert on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol will not be held to ensure the health and safety of all involved.
