From Peace One Day founder, Jeremy Gilley:
Peace One Day has been holding an annual celebration to raise awareness of Peace Day since the beginning. Concerts energise people, they engage the audience and the press. But I wanted to find a new way to extend the reach of the concert beyond the audience in the auditorium.
This year’s concert, at Le Zenith Paris, will be our biggest yet, with performances from Patti Smith, Youssou Ndour, Charlie Winston, -M-, Yodelice, Ayo, and Vanessa Paradis. It’s a wonderful line up, with collaborations and specially-written songs bringing this famous concert-hall to life. The evening is being hosted by Peace One Day ambassador Jude Law and Sharon Stone. There will also be some short POD films and key announcements.
This is a truly global concert, for the first time accessible to a global audience: because this year, on Peace Day September 21, the concert will be broadcast on the internet as a webcast, with evening play-outs in multiple time zones.
Hosted at http://peaceoneday.theconcertchannel.eu, and available for only €9.99/£8.25/$12.75, this high-quality video stream will allow people in any country in the world to feel like they were there, in Paris, on the night. Rather than shaking a bucket or asking for donations, we wanted to be able to give our supporters something special in return.
We hope you join us on Peace Day to watch this inspirational concert. Gather your friends and family together, log your commitment on peaconeday.org, and sit back to enjoy this unique event.
…and please tell as many people as you can. All proceeds go to Peace One Day to help continue our work in raising awareness of Peace Day 21 September.
Thanks for your support!
