Live Rock and Roll

Hootie won’t be playing ‘Nam after all!

It appears that the big World Peace Music Awards that I posted about last month that was to take place in a mere 9 days time will not be going ahead according to Plug Pulled on Vietnam “Peace” Concert. “Insurmountable circumstances” were the reasons given but I have a funny feeling that when they realized Lionel Ritchie was scheduled to appear, the whole nation figured that there was the very real possibility that he would sing a duet with Gloria Gaynor and that was not an ordeal that the government felt it could put it’s people through. It might be rescheduled for later in the year though so there is hope for the festival but sadly perhaps not for the musical education of the Vietnamese people.
