LIVE: Biden delivers annual State of Union address

THE President and First Lady have invited a large number of guests to appear at this year's State of the Union address tonight.

President Joe Biden and Dr Jill Biden are able to invite up to 24 guests to sit in the box with the First Lady during the annual speech.

This year's guests headed to the US Capitol include U2 rock band vocalist Bono, Monterey Park shooting hero Brandon Tsay, and Tyre Nichols’ parents, RowVaughn and Rodney Wells.

“Each of these individuals were invited by the White House because they personify issues or themes to be addressed by the President in his speech, or they embody the Biden-Harris Administration’s policies at work for the American people,” the White House said in a statement ahead of the event.

The State of the Union address will air live on the White House's website, as well as on the official social media streams on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter at 9pm ET.
