Amnesty International spokesman RENDALL WAGNER said the aim of the concert was to raise awareness about Amnesty and its campaigns relating to Violence Against Women, refugees and the Asia Pacific.

Of all the work undertaken by Amnesty, Rogers said he felt particularly passionate about the government's Pacific Solution policy.
