Angelique Kidjo, U2, Will.i.am, Sting, Rokia Traoré, Kid Rock, Mumford and Sons, Elvis Costello, Green Day, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Ed Sheeran & dozens more raise their voices and demand action against extreme poverty ahead of the G8.
JOHANNESBURG, LONDON AND WASHINGTON, (June 11, 2013) – The ONE Campaign today joined forces with dozens of musicians from across the globe to launch agit8, an urgent call for action against extreme poverty in the crucial week leading up to the G8 summit in Northern Ireland.
An extraordinary line up of artists have added their voices to the campaign by
Soul searching, heartache and self-discovery can be common themes in Broadway shows, but this critically-acclaimed show also happens to have a Green Day score. The national tour of American Idiot makes a stop in Las Vegas at The Smith Center June 11-16. Based on the rock opera album of the same name, the Tony Award-winning show follows three friends in their efforts to break out of suburban ennui and define themselves in a post 9/11 existence.
You may have listened to the American Idiot album a thousand times, but when you hear songs like 21 Guns and Wake Me Up When September Ends within this emotional storyline and through the voices of this dynamic cast, it's like hearing each song for the first time. Located just north of the Strip, the newly minted Smith Center is one of the premier places for Broadway shows in Vegas right now. $24-$190.
If you're looking for less of a theater experience, and more of a Green Day punk show, the American Idiot Band performs a An Evening with Idiots, a special, 90-minute free show at Red Rock Ranch Resort, June 13, 10:30 p.m. Musicians from the show will perform from the entire Green Day catalog, not just songs from American Idiot. That means you'll likely get to hear your favorites from albums such as Dookie and Nimrod.

New contest alert! Emily's Army releases their second album 'Lost at Seventeen' on Rise Records today.
Emily's Army is comprised of brothers Cole and Max Becker (who split vocal duties and play guitar and bass, respectively), guitarist Travis Neumann and drummer Joey Armstrong (son of Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong, who also produced the LP). They showcase their knack for ragged So Cal pop-punk with a bleeding heart and a healthy sense of humor.
Queen's Freddie Mercury died in 1991, but in 2013 he can still get 60,000 people singing along to "Bohemian Rhapsody."
As fans waited for Green Day to take the stage at London's Emirates Stadium earlier this month, a video shot from the upper deck captures the crowd's enthusiastic sing-along of the 1975 hit.
The highlight comes around the 2:00 mark as the guitar kicks in and thousands of concertgoers on the field in front of the stage begin pogoing. The group effort reaches its loudest point here:
"So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye
So you think you can love me and leave me to die
Oh baby -- can't do this to me baby
Just gotta get out -- just gotta get right outta here"
Commenters on the YouTube page where the video is posted were caught up in the moment as well.
"This makes me cry and smile so big at the same time. I love rock fans. Long live Queen!" wrote highlyillogical.
