Amnesty International Concert at Barclays Center
A star-studded lineup was on hand to help raise awareness on human rights issues during last night’s Amnesty International concert at Barclays Center. The event’s can’t-miss moment was Madonna’s introduction of Maria Alyokhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova—two members of Russian feminist punk rock collective Pussy Riot who were recently freed from prison after serving 21 months. The Flaming Lips, Yoko Ono, Tegan and Sara, Imagine Dragons, Lauryn Hill, the Fray, Cold War Kids, Colbie Caillat, Cake, Blondie and other artists delivered short but sweet performances to round out the evening's proceedings.
