Upon the invitation from End Exploitation and Trafficking Campaign (MTV EXIT), famous Canadian rock band Simple Plan together with well-known Vietnamese singer My Tam are going to rock My Dinh National Stadium on 26 May.
Detailed program is kept under secrecy until the pressing time of the show. However, the song named This Song Saved My Life written from hundreds of massages by Simple Plan’s fans on Twitter is surely expected.
After going on tours in Japan, China and Singapore, this is the first time Simple Plan has come to Vietnam. Founded in 1999 with more than 7 million albums sold all over the world, Simple Plan’s popularity is expected to bring about strong effect to the target of the show, helping strengthen people awareness on human trafficking.
According to humantrafficking.org, Vietnam is among countries most suffered from human trafficking, for both sexual and labor exploitation purposes from Taiwan, Malaysia, South Korea, Laos, the United Arab Emirates, Japan, China, Thailand, Saudi Arabia, Libya, Indonesia, the United Kingdom, the Czech Republic, Cyprus, Sweden, Trinidad and Tobago, Costa Rica, Russia, and elsewhere in the Middle East.
In 2011, Vietnam has seen many international artists such as Backstreet Boys, Westlife, American Idols David Cook and David Archuleta come and shine on stage. Most of these concerts have ticket sold out, making Vietnam a more and more attractive destination for world famous music players and singers.
