Tour,” being broadcast by Radio Vision International. It will air in the United States on HBO and simultaneously in 54 other countries, including Ireland, Spain, Turkey, Switzerland, Greece, Belgium and the Netherlands.

The tour, which featured rock musicians Bruce Springsteen, Peter Gabriel, Sting, Tracy Chapman and Youssou N’Dour, traveled the globe earlier this year on a six-week tour to promote the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Kevin Wall, President of Radio Vision International, said, “We anticipate close to 1 billion people will tune into the show.”
