Amnesty International Concert, Paris

I produced the Amnesty International Concert and media production with Blair Gibb on December 10th, 1998, at the Bercy Omnisport Arena in Paris. We secured Body Shop as a sponsor, lined up Bill Graham Presents, and Mike Lopez for the TV and radio production. It has been reviewed as a singularly unique and satisfying evening of live performances by a host of the world's top musical artists. The concert was presented celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, beginning with Peter Gabriel, Tracy Chapman, Bruce Springsteen and Youssou N'Dour singing "Get Up, Stand Up". Bruce Springsteen sings "No Surrender", "Born in USA" with a different arrangement and "Working in the Highway".

The marvelous Jimmy Page and Robert Plant presented "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You" and the classic "Rock and Roll". Radiohead presented "Karma Police", "Bones" and "Paranoid Android". Last but not the least, Youssou N'Dour sang "7 Seconds" with Peter Gabriel, Tracy Chapman and Jocelyn Beroard. Between the presentation of each artist, beautiful messages about the importance of the Human Rights and the role of the Amnesty International were presented, inclusive with the touching presence of Dalai Lama himself live on the stage.
