“Get Up! Stand Up!” captures the highlights from “The Human Rights Concerts” - a series of successful charity concerts between 1986 and 1998, that were staged to raise awareness and funds for the Nobel Peace Prize-winning human rights organization Amnesty International.
The first recordings are from Amnesty’s 25th anniversary tour “A Conspiracy Of Hope”, followed two years later by “Human Rights Now!”, the legendary 20 concerts-long tour through five continents. The series continued with the con- cert “An Embrace Of Hope” in Chile in 1990 as well as “The Struggle Continues” in 1998’s Paris.
