Sting and his wife, Trudie Styler, have set April 17 as the date for the 25th Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert.
It's the 18th time they have put on the show to 'raise awareness and funds for the important work the Rainforest Fund provides to communities of indigenous peoples throughout Brazil and other countries including Belize, Cameroon, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Guyana, Honduras, Indonesia, Madagascar, Mexico, Nicaragua, Papua New Guinea, Peru, Suriname and Venezuela.'
The April 17 show will once again be at the Stern Auditorium at Carnegie Hall; however, unlike years past, they are yet to announce who will be playing at the show even though tickets went on sale today.
The press release does promise a 'star studded evening' and, to be fair, past benefits have included the likes of Elton John, Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen, James Taylor, Diana Ross, Paul Simon, Stevie Wonder and many more.
