Madonna to Introduce Pussy Riot Members at Human Rights Concert
Adding yet another appearance to her recent string of public events, Madonna just confirmed that she will introduce members of Pussy Riot at Amnesty International's human rights concert in New York City.
Making the confirmation today (January 29), the 55-year-old said that she looks up to Maria Alyokhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, who were just released from prison after two years.
The two ladies were convicted of alleged hooliganism when staging a protest in a Russian church, and Madonna's support will be shown during the Bringing Human Rights Home concert on Wednesday, February 5th.
The event takes place at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, and features the musical talents of The Flaming Lips, Imagine Dragons, The Fray Colbie Caillat and many others.
