Fall Out Boy, Santigold to fight AIDS with concerts
Fall Out Boy, Santigold, the All-American Rejects and Gomez are all set to join the fight against AIDS in Africa by taking part in the (Red)Nights series of shows.

Lisa Hannigan and The Veronicas are also among the acts who will turn one of their upcoming concerts (Red), using live music to raise awareness of (Red)’s mission to help eliminate AIDS in Africa.

The (Red) organisation recently took another step to help eliminate the epidemic when it launched (Red)Wire, a digital music service which includes acts such U2, Coldplay, The Killers, Jay-Z, Noel Gallagher, Conor Oberst, TV On The Radio, Death Cab For Cutie and more.

Out of the 26 (Red)Nights events to take place, so far only a couple of dates have been announced. These are:

The Veronicas New Orleans, LA House of Blues (June 12)
Santigold Dallas, TX House Of Blues (18)
