Monaco Red Cross Gala

Jamiroquai, ambassadors for the 75th Monaco Red Cross Gala, will be performing an exclusive live concert at the Salle des Etoiles on Friday 19 July 2024.

Stars under the stars

 In 2024, the 75th edition of this spectacular charity event will return to its iconic home: the Salle des Etoiles at the Sporting Monte-Carlo. 

Since their debut album "Emergency on Planet Earth" in 1993, they have racked up seven Top 10 albums in the UK, a Grammy Award, 26 million albums sold worldwide and an entry in the Guiness Book of Records for the best-selling funk album of all time. Now, Jamiroquai are set to play the Monaco Red Cross Gala for the first time ever, promising an unforgettable evening of pure funk!

In 2022, the Monaco Red Cross Gala reinvented itself with a brand new formula:

H.S.H. Prince Albert II wanted this major society charity event to take place on the Place du Casino itself. American singer Alicia Keys was the star of the show, performing on a temporary stage set up in the Principality's most iconic square, with 2,000 guests enjoying the music in the open air.

Incredible entertainment in a great cause…

The Monaco Red Cross was founded on 3 March 1948 by Prince Louis II. The same year, it was officially recognised by the International Committee of the Red Cross and admitted to the International Foundation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.
The Presidents of the Monaco Red Cross:

  • Prince Rainier III from 1949 to 1958 
  • Princess Grace from 1958 to 1982
  • H.S.H. Prince Albert II since 17 December 1982 

Since its creation, charity shows have been held to raise funds for the Monaco Red Cross's humanitarian works.

They aim to help finance actions faithful to the spirit of the great Franco-Swiss humanist and founder of the Red Cross movement.

At the first of these shows in 1948, the star was none other than Maurice Chevalier, and every year, the programme rivals it in glamour, hosting a Christian Dior fashion show in 1952 and Zizi Jeanmaire in 1953.

GALActic evenings…

From 1957, the Gala as we know it today took shape at the Salle des Etoiles, hosting famous artists for unique shows every summer, compered by equally illustrious hosts.
Joséphine Baker, Charles Aznavour, Frank Sinatra, The Beach Boys, Sir Elton John, Duran Duran, Sting, The Scorpions, Lionel Richie, and John Legend are some of the many international stars to have performed on the Monegasque stage at this exceptional Gala.

Generosity, Solidarity, and Gratitude

The tombola, one of the evening's most popular moments, always sees prestige prizes to be won to the delight of the guests, and is responsible for a significant part of the funds raised by the Gala.

Every year, spectators and guests of the Monaco Red Cross flock to this glamorous event to show their solidarity.

This fabulous evening is an opportunity for the Red Cross to express its gratitude to the generous donors, and to pay tribute to the work made possible by the funds raised
