More big names join the anti-war effort...
System Of A Down and AUDIOSLAVE are to make contributions to EMILY EAVIS’ ‘ONE BIG NO’ anti-war concert, NME.COM can reveal.
As previously reported, the likes of Travis frontman Fran Healy, Paul Weller, Faithless, System Of A Down, Ian McCulloch and Evan Dando are amongst those confirmed for the show at Shepherds Bush Empire (March 15).
NME.COM can reveal that fans at the gig will also be treated to one of the first showings of the new Paul Weller video for ‘Boom!’, which has been directed by Michael Moore, while Audioslave’s Chris Cornell will also record a video, performing an acoustic version of Elvis Costello’s ‘ (What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love And Understanding’.
Emily, daughter of Glastonbury founder Michael, has been putting the bill together with Lily Sobhani. The event will take on a similar feel to her recent ‘Make Trade Fair’ charity gig at the London Astoria, where each artist performed acoustic sets, with an emphasis on collaborations. Ian McCulloch is billed as performing with a ‘secret special guest’, as is Ian Brown.
Ticket proceeds will go to the Stop The War Coalition and CND Visit NME.COM for regular updates on the line-up.
