Many news agencies are reporting that Jimmy Page has been confirmed to play at the first annual Show Of Peace Concert, a environmental awareness event, which is scheduled to take place on April 17th 2010 at Beijing, China’s ‘Birds Nest’ stadium, the stadium Jimmy performed with Leona Lewis at the closing ceremony of last year’s Olympic Games. In addition to the 100,000 attendees expected at the concert there are also plans to televise the event worldwide.

More performers and other details will be announced at a Jan. 13 press conference in Beijing. The concert’s official web site lists nearly 50 target artists to be invited, including Prince, Green Day, Beyonce, Coldplay, Black Eyed Peas, Kenny Chesney, Mariah Carey, Justin Timberlake and many others.

The concert will mark the 30th anniversary of the cultural exchange agreement between the United States and China. It is billed as “a ‘peace is green’ awareness campaign designed to not only promote peace with each other but to promote peace with our planet.” Music & television producer Rick Garson’s Las Vegas-based ZZYX Entertainment Company is producing the show. Garson’s co-producers include Live 8 and Live Earth principal Greg Sills and artist manager Trudy Green. Other organizations involved in the concert include “the Chinese People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries, the Joint US-China Collaboration on Clean Energy, the United Nations’ Pathways of Peace and the Captain Planet Foundation.”
