'97 Tibetan Freedom Concert Set For New York

April 8 [7:55 EST] -- A Second Tibetan Freedom Concert has been scheduled to take place at Randall's Island in New York City on the weekend of June 7 and 8.

Concert organizer Adam Yauch will perform with the Beastie Boys. Rancid will be on hand, along with a number of other acts to be announced any day now. As soon as more acts are confirmed, we'll let you know.

The aim of the concert will once again be to raise awareness of China's half-century-long occupation of neighboring Tibet.
