Can I use a photo of a celebrity without their permission?

I want to use a celebrity’s face for a promotion that is significant to the fact that the celebrity will not be present at said event. Do I need that person’s consent?

That sounds tricky. A celebrity has rights to their likeness so avoid implying a business affiliation. Consult an attorney. Also, the photo itself has a copyright which is owned by the photographer.
