Radiohead has lent one of its songs to an MTV campaign to raise awareness about sweatshop labor and human trafficking. The international music network has produced a video of the band's "All I Need" that MTV will begin airing today and make available to broadcasters. The MTV EXIT (End Exploitation and Trafficking) Campaign made the video shown in split screen, one side depicting a day in the life of an affluent young child and the other of a child forced to work in a sweatshop. Activists will be at Radiohead concerts as the band embarks on a tour of North America, Europe and Asia to distribute information about the issue.
Kicking into the holidayS
Madison Square Garden Entertainment will launch a touring arena version of its Radio City Christmas Spectacular this holiday season. The $25 million production will be geared specifically for arenas and play 18 cities across the Midwest and South, beginning Nov. 7-8 in Green Bay, Wis. The plan is to hit more than 60 markets over the next three years and then repeat the cycle. Details of the yuletide tour are expected to be announced today.
