Julian Lennon, Peter Gabriel and U2 will be among the Western acts performing March 25-27 in Moscow's 30,000-seat Olympic stadium in anti-drug concerts sponsored by the Soviet Peace Committee, organizers have confirmed. The concerts, which will include performances by Soviet musicians, will benefit a United Nations fund to fight drug abuse, said organizer Vitaly Korotich, editor of the weekly news magazine Ogonyok. Last summer Santana, James Taylor and the Doobie Brothers teamed up with Soviet rock bands in the first ever open-air rock concert in Moscow to feature Western headline acts.
