Juanes And Miguel Bosé To Join Ingrid Betancourt In Paris Concert
Published July 18, 2008

On July 20, Juanes and Miguel Bosé will join Ingrid Betancourt for a concert in Paris to demand the release of all remaining hostages in Colombia and an end to guerrilla violence in the country.

Ingrid Betancourt - the former Colombian Senator and Presidential candidate recently released from six-years of captivity – announced plans to hold a special free concert in Paris on July 20th in conjunction with Colombian Independence Day. The Concert for Freedom will coincide with hundreds of similar peace concerts and marches planned throughout Colombia and across the world that will demand the release of the thousands of remaining hostages still held captive in the jungles of Colombia.

 

Set to take place at the Trocadero Esplanade, the concert will feature acoustic performances by Juanes—who is known worldwide as a leading activist for peace in Colombia—Spanish superstar Miguel Bose, and French artists Renan Luce & Michel Delpech, among others.

 

In addition to the July 20th call for the immediate release of all remaining hostages, Juanes also plans to pay tribute to the heroic Colombian soldiers who risked their own lives in the dramatic rescue effort.
