Canadian rocker Bryan Adams will headline concerts for peace in the West Bank and Israel next week, with performances relayed by satellite to simultaneous events in London, Ottawa and Washington, organizers said Sunday. Adams, 47, had a series of multi-platinum albums during the 1980s and mid-1990s and was nominated for an Academy Award for "Everything I Do, his theme for the 1991 Kevin Kostner film "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves". The New York-based "One Voice" peace movement said the concerts were aimed at bolstering its campaign to collect one million signatures of ordinary Israelis and Palestinians demanding that their leaders sit down and finalize an agreement on a Palestinian state living at peace with Israel. The head of One Voice's Ramallah office, Fathi Darwish, said Adams would launch the West Bank event at a football stadium in the ancient town of Jericho, then head to Tel Aviv to perform in the second half of the three-hour show there.
