Garbage, Run-DMC, The Cult For Tibetan Freedom Concerts

Garbage, Run-DMC and a reunited Cult are the latest additions to the 1999 Tibetan Freedom Concerts being held on June 13 in Tokyo, Sydney, Amsterdam, and East Troy, Wisconsin.

The Cult and Run-DMC will perform at the U.S. show, being held at the Alpine Valley Music Theater, where they join such previously announced artists as the Beastie Boys, Outkast, and Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder (see [article id="1425441"]"Beastie Boys, Rage Against The Machine, The Roots, Thom Yorke, More On Board For 1999 Tibetan Freedom Concerts"[/article]).

Garbage will play the Amsterdam concert at the RAI Parkhal, sharing the stage with Rage Against The Machine, Ben Harper, Joe Strummer, and Radiohead's Thom Yorke.

The announcement of the Cult's involvement with the Tibetan shows comes on the heels of vocalist Ian Astbury and guitarist Billy Duffy's appearance onstage with the Neurotic Outsiders at the Viper Room in Los Angeles earlier this week (see [article id="1431459"]"What

Brings Together A Sex Pistol And A Spice Girl? Steve Jones Explains"[/article]).

At that show, the founding duo of the Cult got to hook up with one of the band's former drummers, Matt Sorum, who played on the group's 1989 album, "Sonic Temple," but eventually left to join Guns N' Roses. The Cult disbanded in 1995 after releasing its self-titled sixth album.

Tickets for the American date of the Tibetan Freedom quartet will go on sale May 1 at 10:00 a.m. at TicketMaster outlets and via its online site at www.ticketmaster.com.
