Gary Sinise to Host National Memorial Day Concert on PBS

By Tess Farrand, Associate Content Editor

Gary Sinise will host the National Memorial Day Concert event on PBS on May 24, 2020. Sinise shared the news in an interview with Disabled American Veterans.

“I would like everyone to know that in spite of the coronas virus and what’s going on with COVID-19 and all of that… we’re going to put on a wonderful show for you.”

The concert will air 8 p.m. ET/ 7 p.m. CT.

In years past, the concert was live and in Washington D.C., but this year, things look different. Sinise mentioned he’s shot some footage already for the broadcast.

Former Movieguide® Awards host Joe Mantegna (CRIMINAL MINDS) will host with Sinise, as the two have hosted the concert together for many years.

PBS’s broadcast will highlight everyday heroes, such as health care works, in light of the worldwide pandemic.

Although the many outcomes of COVID-19 are grave, Sinise said, “I think we will get this under control and come roaring back.”
