Playing For Change have announced their upcoming Peace Through Music Tour in support of their new album Songs Around The World, the band’s third CD/DVD set available June 17th, 2014. Coming off a successful 2013 stadium tour with Robert Plant in Australia, the PFC Band is getting ready to hit the road again, from the streets to the stage, to the hearts of the people. The Playing For Change band embarks on a 30-city tour that features 10 artists from around the world including Amsterdam, Tel Aviv, South Africa, Japan, Zimbabwe, Los Angeles, Cuba, New Orleans, Los Angeles and the Congo. Tickets will be available via fan club pre-sale on March 19 and generally from March 21, 2014.

Playing For Change is a movement created to inspire, connect and bring peace to the world through music. In 2005, co-founders Mark Johnson and Whitney Kroenkecreated the concept of the Songs Around The World by uniting together musicians from many different countries and cultures to perform on the same track. Mark and a small crew traveled across 5 continents with a mobile recording studio and cameras with the vision of building a global family through the power of music. The first song released was a version of “Stand By Me,” featuring over 35 musicians from 10 countries who had never met in person. Since then, this international version of “Stand By Me” has been viewed over 100 million times online.
