Thom Yorke, Patti Smith, Flea + More Will Perform at Pathway to Paris Benefit Concert
Rolling Stone reports that Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke, Patti Smith, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea and Dhani Harrison have been revealed as some of the performers for this year's Pathway to Paris, a benefit concert geared toward raising awareness surrounding climate change.
The concert will take place on Dec. 4 at Le Trianon theater in Paris in conjunction with the U.N.’s Climate Change Conference, which in turn will be held on Nov. 30 and Dec. 11 in France's capital. Ticket proceeds benefit 350.org, the NGO dedicated to mobilizing both citizens and policymakers to take action against climate change and find solutions.
This marks the second annual Pathway to Paris, which was first held in New York City last year. The concert was founded by Jesse Paris Smith and Rebecca Foon, who will both make appearances at the concert as well. This year’s speakers also include 350.org founder Bill McKibben and social activists and critics Naomi Klein and Vandana Shiva.
Pathway to Paris tickets will go on sale sometime this September.
