U2 ready to help Kosovo

3.31.99 - Dotmusic

A spokeswoman for U2 has confirmed to dotmusic that the band would be able and willing to lend their support to any suitable music industry initiative to aid the plight of Kosovan refugees currently pouring out of their country to escape the ethnic cleansing of Slobodan Milosevic's Serbian army.

The band's record of involvement in a range of humanitarian projects puts them top of the list for benefit organisers the world over. And while Bono and the band are wary of over-exposure on this front, it seems likely that when, not if, the plight of the Kosovans leads to a fund raising concert or Band Aid style recording, the Irish supergroup will answer the call. "They haven't been asked to get involved in anything as yet," says their spokeswoman. "but yes, their schedule for this year would allow them to take part."
