Radiohead sign for Amnesty gig
Amnesty International hope it will be the biggest human rights concert in a decade
Rock stars Radiohead have signed to play on the same bill as Canadian singer Alanis Morissette at a human rights concert in support of Amnesty International.
The Oxford band will also line up beside international solo stars Peter Gabriel and Tracy Chapman at Bercy Stadium in Paris, to mark the 50th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
A Radiohead statement said: "The Amnesty International human rights concert in Paris will be our only European appearance this year.
"We hope that this is an effective way to support Amnesty International in their positive work to promote the human rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights."
The band achieved international cult status with their last two albums, The Bends and OK Computer.
