2018 will mark the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. To celebrate the Anniversary, Bill Shipsey (founder of Art for Amnesty, a human rights activist, lawyer and lifelong member of Amnesty International) has created a project entitled “Le Rêve d’Eleanor” (“Eleanor’s Dream”). To promote a world in which the rights of all human beings are fully respected, the project invites artists from every artistic discipline the world over to dedicate at least one of their creative adventures to it. It may be a concert, a show, an exhibition or any other artistic performance produced during the year. “Le Rêve d’Eleanor” is a tribute to Eleanor Roosevelt, who played a crucial role in the adoption of the Declaration on 10th December 1948. Damien Rice’s solo acoustic concert to benefit Amnesty International at Paris’s prestigious Olympia Music Hall on Monday 11th December 2017 will mark the start of this fabulous celebration. Damien last performed for Amnesty at the “Electric Burma concert for Aung Suu Kyi in 2012. “Amnesty protects humanity from inhumanity.” – Damien Rice On December 10, 2018, exactly 70 years after the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights – a grand concert will be held…read more »

Dear Viagogo and Secondary
Market Ticket Sellers,
We organised the concert in Naples on May 19th as a charity event.
We are donating all profits towards planting trees on Mount Olivella, Sapri.
We ask you to stop reselling tickets on your website for financial profit.
All profits for this event are intended to go to nature.
Dear Ticket Buyer, This concert is sold out. Please do not buy over-priced tickets from viagogo. There will be another Damien Rice concert in Naples another time. Damien Rice & Escif
Damien Rice is joining Spanish street artist, Escif, to mark the opening of “Breath Project” on May 19th at Teatro Acacia. Tickets to “Breath Project” go on sale Wednesday, February 15th at 11:00am CET [link:www.breathproject.it].
Damien Rice will be performing for the first time in Napoli for a concert focused on uniting people together to mark the opening of Escif's project to create a living battery on the side of a barren mountain, Mount Olivella. Ticket sales from the concert, as well as a crowdfunding will directly go towards the financial development of “Breath Project.”
"Breath Project” is striving to revive Mount Olivella, a 1000 mt. high mountain that suffered partial deforestation with side effects causing flooding in the surrounding areas. The installation will include the planting of 5,000 trees on the mountain. Escif’s vision is creating a huge organic drawing of a battery, symbolizing the renewing and regenerating of itself. From sea to surrounding towns, the visibility of the project will show seasonal cycles expressed through the changing colors and the presence or absence of leaves. It is a reminder to all that nature, just as phone batteries, needs recharging in order to function properly.
Damien and Escif have collaborated in the past to create the drawings used in the cover and booklet of Damien’s latest album, "My Favourite Faded Fantasy.”read more »
