This concert was one of the final stops of the “Human Rights Now!” tour and headliners Bruce Springsteen, Sting, Peter Gabriel, Tracy Chapman and Youssou N’Dour had been all over the planet by the time the concert took place in the legendary River Plate Stadium in Buenos Aires on the 15th October 1988.
