Coldplay and Mumford & Sons For Secret Policeman's Ball

(Gibson) Coldplay are set to join Mumford & Sons as part of the lineup to be featured at this year's edition of The Secret Policeman's Ball. The British-based music and comedy festival will be staged at New York City's Radio Music Hall on March 4.

The concert, which had its inception in 1976, benefits the human right group, Amnesty International. As reported by the Associated Press, Amnesty International spokesperson Andy Hackman said the organization wanted to present the event on a grander scale this year, to mark the 50th anniversary of the founding of the human rights group.

"That phrase, 'human rights,' has lost meaning in some ways," Hackman said. "That's why we want to demonstrate the power and the joy that free speech can bring to us all. It's really just using these amazing, talented people to demonstrate the power [and] what a force of good free speech is." more on this story
