New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ World Harmony Productions) World Harmony Productions announced today the artist line-up for the ONE WORLD CONCERT-a historic celebration of peace, music and common ground-coming to the Carrier Dome at Syracuse University on Tuesday, October 9th, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. Expected to be one of the largest gatherings of international artists ever to travel to the region, this special benefit concert immediately follows a public talk by the Dalai Lama and features an original song written and performed by multiple artists, especially for His Holiness.

The all-star lineup for the ONE WORLD CONCERT includes: Host band Don Was and his All-Star Band, Dave Matthews, Counting Crows, Phillip Phillips, Nas, A.R. Rahman, Andy Grammer, Matisyahu, Natasha Bedingfield, Swiss Beatz, Cyndi Lauper, Bebe Winans, Angelique Kidjo, Voices of Afghanistan, Souad Massi, Engelbert Humperdink, Roberta Flack, David Sanborn, Joanne Shenandoah, David Crosby and Nelly Furtado. Special guests include Whoopi Goldberg, the evening's emcee, and NBC News' Ann Curry.

"After discussions with thought leaders throughout the world and with His Holiness, it became clear to me that a peace movement can only be realized when we engage the public in conversations about common ground and understanding," explains Samuel Nappi, founder of One World Community Foundation and president of World Harmony Productions. "As music is the universal language of our soul, we are thrilled to be partnering with Syracuse University and such a talented group of artists and intellectuals to help enliven the conversation."

Musician David Crosby says, "This event has such important chemistry. His Holiness the Dalai Lama seeks peace and compassion for the whole human race, and the diversity of musicians and speakers on the panels is also important. Since Dave Matthews first appeared in the music world he has been trying to go for the high ground. He's also a very powerful presence."

Crosby adds, "There's a chance for magic to happen here."

Tickets to the ONE WORLD CONCERT include admission to the combined public talk by the Dalai Lama and the musical performances.Prices range from $35-$55, with a limited number of Gold Circle tickets available. Tickets will be sold via Ticketmaster, the Carrier Dome Box Office or 888-DOMETIX. Presale tickets will be sold starting on Saturday, September 8, 2012 at 10:00 AM EDT. The Public on-sale will begin Monday, September 10 at 10:00 AM EDT.

A special online only presale for SU and ESF full-time students will begin on Friday, September 7, 2012 at 2:00pm EDT. SU and ESF students will be sent instructions to their school email address.

Proceeds from the concert will be used to advance international relief efforts and fund a new scholarship named for Bassel Al Shahade, the SU graduate student killed earlier this year in Syria while making a documentary film on the violence in his homeland.

The October 9 appearance of His Holiness and the ONE WORLD CONCERT in the Carrier Dome will follow a panel discussion to be held at Syracuse University on October 8. While the panel discussion will have extremely limited seating, the ONE WORLD CONCERT event will offer greater opportunity for members of the public to see and hear His Holiness in person, while witnessing the gathering of world-renowned artists all performing for peace.
