Pearl Jam are rumoured have been added to the bill at the Tibetan Freedom Concert at RFK Stadium in Washington D.C on June 13-14.
They will possibly join Kraftwerk and Sonic Youth, who have both recently been added to the event. The Beastie Boys, the Fugees’ Wyclef Jean, Sean Lennon, Radiohead, REM and a Tribe Called Quest are already confirmed for the event.
This year will be the third time the Tibetan Freedom Concert has been held- with previous concerts featuring Radiohead, Blur, Beck, Oasis and the Foo Fighters amongst others – which raises money for the Milarepa Fund. The fund aims to publicise the plight of the Tibetan people, who have been persecuted by the Chinese occupation of Tibet in the late 1940s.
