As discussed, members of Pussy Riot will be appearing in Brooklyn for the upcoming Amnesty International Human Rights Concert happening on February 5 at Barclays Center, which also features The Flaming Lips, Lauryn Hill, Tegan & Sara, Cold War Kids, Cake, and others.
Since we last spoke, it’s been announced that Madonna, who just performed at the Grammys, will introduce the members at the concert. She said in a statement:
I am honored to introduce my fellow freedom fighters Masha and Nadya from Pussy Riot. I have admired their courage and have long supported their commitment and the sacrifices they have made in the name of freedom of expression and human rights.
Tickets are still available.
