The Concert for The Rainforest Fund comes to The Beacon Theatre on December 9.
Sting and Bruce Springsteen are among the artists that will take part in “We’ll Be Together,” an all-star concert to benefit The Rainforest Fund. The celebration of artists and songs of the 1980’s and 1990’s, which takes its name from Sting’s 1987 single, will be held at the Beacon Theatre in New York City on December 9.
John Mellencamp, James Taylor, Bob Geldof, Shaggy, Ricky Martin, H.E.R., MJ Rodriguez and Eurythmics round out the initial lineup for the event. Additional artists will be announced soon. Robert Downey Jr. is aboard as host.
The 1980s ignited a revolution of social change and awareness. The power of the music video was captured by MTV, and opened up a whole new medium for audiences to connect with songs, artists and with global issues. By the mid-80s, music was both uniting and changing the world with Band Aid, Live Aid and Farm Aid. The Rainforest Fund has been harnessing the power of music and the magic of live performances since 1989, and this year “We’ll Be Together” will be a tribute to the era that started it all.
Since the Rainforest Fund’s inception, Trudie Styler and Sting have been committed to protecting the world’s rainforests and supporting the human rights of the indigenous peoples who live within them. All proceeds from the benefit concert will go directly to the protection and support of the Indigenous people and their land, for they are the best protectors of this vital element of our ecosystem.
“With the Amazon blighted by fire this summer, and a real and growing awareness of climate change, there has never been a more important or more opportune moment to fight to protect our forests. All life on earth depends on their survival.” –– Trudie Styler
