Members of the Russian punk-rock group Pussy Riot will travel to NYC next month and play Barclays Center on February 5 for Amnesty International's Bringing Human Rights Home concert. Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alekhina were released from prison in late December after serving 21 months for publicly criticizing President Vladimir Putin in their now-famous 2012 demonstration in a Moscow church. It was recently announced the two activists would travel to the States as part of their campaign for better prison conditions in Russia, and now they've added this stadium performance to their visit.

The Flaming Lips, Imagine Dragons, Lauryn Hill, Tegan and Sara, and many more acts will play the star-studded benefit in Brooklyn next month. Tickets ($54.50–$255) are on sale now via Ticketmaster.
