Harry and Meghan will rub shoulders with celebs including the Foo Fighters and J-Lo at the concert hosted by Selena Gomez.
Vax Live is being billed as an event to "reunite the world" with performances from a host of stars.
It is not yet clear what the couple will bring to the table at the music concert but they have been given a title of "campaign chairs".
They will lead a drive to raise money for COVAX – a vaccine-sharing program co-led by the World Health Organization.
Speaking on their Archwell site, Meghan and Harry said: "Over the past year, our world has experienced pain, loss, and struggle—together. Now we need to recover and heal—together. We can’t leave anybody behind.
"We will all benefit, we will all be safer, when everyone, everywhere has equal access to the vaccine.
"We must pursue equitable vaccine distribution, and in that, restore faith in our common humanity. This mission couldn’t be more critical or important.”
It is the glitziest event the pair have taken place in since they left the UK for the US last year when they stepped down as senior royals.
The concert will also be the first time pregnant Meghan has been seen in public since the couple's explosive Oprah Winfrey interview.
Harry attended his grandfather Prince Philip's funeral in the UK this month but flew back to Meghan and baby Archie soon after.
Multiple organisations have thrown their weight behind the campaign – including WHO and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen.
The event will be streamed at 8pm ET time in the US on ABC, CBS and YouTube.
