Peter Gabriel and U2 guitarist the Edge have signed on as spokesmen for Amnesty International's "Small Places Tour." Running from September 10 until the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on December 10, the trek is being described as "the most ambitious global music and human rights project since 1988's Human Rights! Now Tour."
According to a press release, "musicians will have many different ways to engage with the tour, including performances as well as offering premium seating packages, meet & greats and other unique fan experiences. Gabriel and the Edge are hoping the Small Places Tour will represent the 'passing of the torch' to the next generation of musician-activists."
