(RED) and LIVE NATION announce the (RED)NIGHTS series, a slate of 26 live concerts in the U.S., which will raise money and awareness for the ultimate goal of eliminating AIDS in AFRICA. To kick off the series, (RED)NIGHTS artists, SANTIGOLD, GOMEZ, O.A.R., FALL OUT BOY, LISA HANNIGAN, THE VERONICAS and THE ALL-AMERICAN REJECTS will turn one of their upcoming concerts (RED).
"I believe no person deserves to suffer from a preventable, treatable disease simply because they can't afford medicine," said O.A.R.'s MARC ROBERGE. "If bringing awareness to what (RED) is doing helps one person receive antiretroviral treatment and live a healthy life, we have accomplished our goal."
