We’ve spoken a little over the last few weeks about the upcoming “Show of Peace” at the Bird’s Nest stadium in Beijing. You can read what we said HERE and HERE.

On Wednesday, Rick Garson and his ZZXY Entertainment company announced at an official press conference that alongside Jimmy Page, they had also confirmed the Black Eyed Peas, Lady Gaga and 50 Cent to appear at the April 17 show.

As of today, we have seen written confirmation from the Lady Gaga and BEP’s teams that they will not be coming. Lady Gaga’s people have never even heard of Rick Garson and the Show of Peace.

A couple of thoughts about this frankly unpleasant business

  1. What is Garson actually trying to achieve.  Is he trying to secure a massive piece of sponsorship revenue and then flee the country?
  2. The imminent failure of the event will, as we said previously, undermine the credibility of these kind of charitable initiatives, both with donors, sponsors and the public at large.
  3. Potential Chinese ticket-buyers will have been scammed once again by unethical con artists, making them even more wary about these kind of events in the future.  The news that Lady Gaga will be playing in April in Beijing is all over the Chinese wires today.

Rick, please come forward and defend yourself.  We would very much like to hear what you have to say.
