Blondie in NJ in 2012 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
We just posted an update to the Amnesty International Rights Concert, happening at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on Wednesday (2/5), that Madonna will be introducing the members of Pussy Riot at the event, and there's since been another update.
NYC punk legends Blondie, who also play a free Super Bowl weekend show on Saturday (2/1) and SXSW, have been added as performers to the event. Bob Geldof (lead singer of The Boomtown Rats and Band Aid/Live Aid organizer) has been added as performer as well.
Additionally, Yoko Ono (who like Madonna, was at the Grammys) will be appearing, and there will be pre-taped video messages from Peter Gabriel and Sting.
Previously announced performers include The Flaming Lips, Lauryn Hill, Tegan & Sara, Cold War Kids, Cake, and others. Ticekts are still available.
