U2 and Sting are among the performers scheduled to appear at the Forum on June 6 as part of a six-city concert tour to raise funds for Amnesty International USA. Information on tickets isn't expected until late this month.
Mary Daly, director of communications for the nonprofit, U.S. section of Amnesty International, said the series of shows will begin June 4 in San Francisco and include stops in Dallas, Atlanta and Chicago. The final concert at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., will be a daylong event, broadcast dlive on MTV and syndicated nationally by Viacom International.
"Our hope is that this caravan across the country will develop new support and more people in the U.S. who are willing to call on governments to stop human rights violations," Daly said.
Three additional acts are expected to be added to the concert bill.
