HIROSHIMA, JAPAN - JULY 31 - CANCELLED

Singer Avril Lavigne to join peace concert in Hiroshima

Canadian singer Avril Lavigne will join the World Peace Concert to be held in Hiroshima from July 27 (Avril performs on July 31) ahead of the 68th anniversary of the 1945 atomic bombing of the city on Aug. 6, the prefectural government said Tuesday.

Composer Ryuichi Sakamoto, singer Saori Yuki, pianist Stanislav Bunin and music producer Quincy Jones will also be among performers at the event, which will run through Aug. 5 and feature concerts in several genres of music including pop and classical.

"We intend to send a message of peace from Hiroshima to visitors," Hiroshima Gov. Hidehiko Yuzaki said.

EDIT: This has been CANCELLED. No reason was given, but my guess is that Avril and Chad will be on their honeymoon...
