Bruce Springsteen, U2, Sting, The Police, Peter Gabriel, Radiohead and 30 other top musicians headline a major DVD & CD release for Amnesty International.
Eagle Rock Entertainment have announced that on Monday 28th October they are issuing ¡RELEASED! – a major six-disc DVD box-set and four companion CD sets of the historic “Human Rights Concert”, presented by Amnesty International. Net proceeds from the DVD and CD sales will go to the human rights organisation Amnesty International.
The release coincides with the 25th anniversary of the high profile “Human Rights Now!” world tour, and arrives six weeks before the worldwide commemorations on 10th December of the 65th anniversary of the Universal Decleration of Human Rights.
The DVD box-set consists of six discs plus a 48-page booklet with rare archival photographs and extensive liner notes including a 10,000 word essay on the history of the concerts by writer Gregory Weinkauf. There are also four CD sets for each of the four concerts. The 1986, 1988 and 1998 concerts are presented on two-disc CD sets while the 1990 concert is a single disc presentation.
Content includes new interviews plus those from the archive, a brand new documentary, home movies of the 1986 Amnesty tour and much more.
¡RELEASED! is available on Monday 28th October and net proceeds will benefit Amnesty International.
