Eagle Rock Entertainment will be releasing a compilation CD and DVD release of Get Up! Stand Up! Highlights From The Human Rights Concerts 1986 – 1998. This compilation features The Police performing Message In A Bottle and Every Breath You Take at Giants Stadium on June 15, 1986 and will be released worldwide by Warner Bros on June 4.
Get Up! Stand Up! presents highlights from The Human Rights Concerts the series of benefit concerts staged between 1986 and 1998 to raise awareness and funds for the Nobel Peace Prize-winning human rights organisation Amnesty International. The first set of performances come from A Conspiracy Of Hope, Amnesty’s 25th anniversary US concert tour in 1986. This was followed by Human Rights Now!, the historic 5-continent 20-concert world tour undertaken in 1988. The series continued with stand-alone concerts An Embrace Of Hope in Chile in 1990 and The Struggle Continues in Paris in 1998. The list of musicians who contributed their services is extraordinary and includes some of the world’s foremost artists – drawn from several nations and representing a wide range of musical styles. The primary factor uniting them was their desire to donate their time and talents to place a spotlight on Amnesty s vital work campaigning for people whose human rights are abused. Building on the achievements of Amnesty s legendary Secret Policeman s Ball benefit shows, albums and movies – these concerts brought awareness of the cause to an ever-wider public. This new release is designed to continue that mission and raise further funds for Amnesty s crucial work.
