Stars set to rock for global peace Jun 17 07:14 PM US/Eastern
Annie Lennox, Corinne Bailey Rae and James Morrison are to headline a concert calling for global peace.
The Peace One Day gig will take place at London's Royal Albert Hall on September 21.
David Beckham and Jude Law will record special video messages.
In 2001, September 21 was designated Peace Day and is recognised by the United Nations.
Law said: "I am immensely proud to be a part of this historic project. This process is about creating an annual moment of global unity. It can only work if we all become involved and it's essential that we do."
Former Eurythmics star Lennox, who will make her first public appearance of the year at the event, said: "Something that is of common interest to every man, woman or child on the planet must surely be the notion of peace. Without peace we cannot survive.
"Valentine's Day is 14 February, Christmas Day is 25 December. Peace Day has been established by the United Nations on 21 September and the whole world is invited to participate.
"This special musical event will be taking place at the Royal Albert hall to celebrate and commemorate the spirit of the occasion. I'm thrilled and delighted to be part of it, and to contribute to making Peace One Day a reality."

Go out and sing.
That’ll stop all of the terrorists.
Wish I’d thought of it.
What are these wussies gonna do if we reject their requests for peace? Declare war on us? Torture us? Make us suffer by listening to their crappy noises?
Oh goodie, let them play the Gaza and really rock for peace. More likely they’d end up in pieces.
Are we going to get Michael Jackson singing “We are the World” AGAIN ???
I think I’d like to celebrate Peace Day on September 20th instead. Sorry, U.N.
(For a second, I thought this was about the global warming day concerts.)
I wonder how many Muslim rock bands will perform?
Peace on the UN.
If there was a particular day in which there was actual peace (world wide, I suppose), then maybe that day can be celebrated.
What would impress me though, is genuine and sustained peace over a number of decades. That would be something to celebrate.
Peace through strength...
Wow. What a stellar lineup.
what do you think the over-under will be on the anti-American/hate-Bush comments made by the entertainers versus the over/under on the outrage shown towards the islamofacists by the performers???
yeah, since they have become totally irrelevant....and insignificant in regards to anything having to do with peace. Since 2/3 of the UN is Muslim it will remain so, far into distant the future
Surely (Shirley), that’s a rhetorical question!
I wonder if they’ve tried to hold one of these concerts in Saudia Arabia, or Kuwait, or even Egypt? Seems like THOSE countries need some reminding about peace, too, but maybe the singing acts think the problem is all the fault of the West.
No Christ No Peace, quite simple.
“Peace Day has been established by the United Nations on 21 September and the whole world is invited to participate.”
Crud. And 9/21 is my FAVORITE night to start a bar room brawl! It figures; those clueless hippies have always ruined everything for me! ;)
Is ‘Sir Elton’ scheduled to perform?
Saturday Night’s Alright (For Fighting)
...Don’t give us none of your aggravation
We had it with your discipline
Saturday night’s alright for fighting
Get a little action in
Get about as oiled as a diesel train
Gonna set this dance alight
‘Cause Saturday night’s the night I like
Saturday night’s alright alright alright...
Some of them want to be abused.
