A thee-hour concert featuring some of the world's top performing artists appearing without charge in a world peace concert will take place on Saturday, June 14, 2003 at Bali's Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park. Dubbed the first-ever World Peace Music Awards, the star-packed show will be available on a live broadcast feed at television networks reaching an estimated audience of 1.5 billion viewers.
Artists who have overcome the reluctance to travel born of a fear of multiple travel warnings, terrorist attacks, and SARS infection are traveling to Bali to raise awareness of the need for world peace. Drawing their initial inspiration from the tragic bombing of a Bali nightspot of last October, the participants are committed to the principle that the music so brutally interrupted on that evening must continue.
Exciting Line Up of Performers
Among the musicians set to perform are Stewart Copeland, formerly of The Police; Latin-America star Kinki; French opera star Emma Shapplin; Taiwanese singing sensation Jay Chou; Egyptian performer Hakim; together with Big Mountain from the United States of America, Maxi Priest from the United Kingdon, and INXS from Australia.
Indonesian artists who will join performers from at least 10 other countries at the event include the musical group Slank, controversial dangdut singer-dancer Inul Daratista, and recording artist Krisdayanti.
