After previously teaming up with Inter Miami for his inaugural “United At Home” event last month in Miami, internationally-renowned DJ David Guetta partnered with MLS and Heineken to hold a second concert on Saturday, May 30 in New York City.
The show which was hosted from a Manhattan rooftop, is the latest MLS Unites initiative to raise money to help those in need during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Miami event raised more than $800,000.

The show began after New York’s “daily clap” at 7PM that acknowledges frontline and healthcare workers, and it featured appearances from first responders and other surprise guests. Select fans over 21 at Heineken partner MLS clubs received exclusive access to a video conference room during the performance and were featured on the global live stream.
The performance is available on Guetta's channels on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, Twitch, VK and TikTok. MLSsoccer.com, as well as the league’s Facebook, Twitter, Twitch and YouTube accounts, carried the live stream.
“Nothing unifies and brings people together quite like music and soccer,” David Bruce, MLS SVP of brand and integrated marketing, said in a statement. “Major League Soccer is proud to join forces with a committed partner like Heineken and global icon David Guetta to build an event that connects soccer fans and leaves a positive impact in our communities.”
