Many musicians and rock groups are becoming increasingly invested in environmental causes each day but after the recent tragedy in Japan, several big names have rallied together to help raise money and awareness for the Japanese earthquake victims.
The Japan Tsunami Appeal, launched on March 12th by the British Red Cross, is working extremely hard to support the response operation. Now with the aid of influential rock musicians such as Liam Gallagher, Graham Coxon and Richard Ashcroft, a Japan Disaster Benefit concert will be held at the 02 Brixton Academy Venue in London on April 3rd, 2011 (England’s Mother’s Day). Tickets for the event have already sold out with a popular lineup including Beady Eye, Primal Scream, The Coral and Paul Weller.
Other Japan relief concerts are popping up as the number of deaths and people missing continues to rise. Considering the ease with which big-name musicians can sell out a stadium for a good cause, it should be expected that these rockers continue to use their influence and talent as entertainers to increase appreciation and interest in environmental restoration.
