As many as 25,000 people are expected to attend a free concert by rapper, actor and activist Common on Monday evening on Capitol Mall, city officials said Friday.

The event, called the Imagine Justice Concert, is aimed at raising awareness about several bills in the California Legislature that would give more rights to juvenile offenders and revamp the state’s bail system, Common said in a statement.

“As an artist, I believe it is my duty to fight injustice wherever it appears and take a stand for my fellow brothers and sisters … and support the most marginalized members of our society,” Common wrote on the event website.

The 5 p.m. concert is officially sold out via pre-registration, promoters said on the event website. “Due to high attendance, entrance to the event is not guaranteed without pre-registration,” the website states.
