Morrissey Sponsors Rock Against Racism Gig

Here's the official word: *Morrissey has personally stepped in with a significant financial contribution to the Love Music Hate Racism campaign in order to allow their 30th Anniversary Rock Against Racism concert to go ahead in Victoria Park, London this weekend without financial loss or burden to the charity. In addition to his own contribution he has rallied his management, booking agency and promoters to make up the majority of the £75,000 deficit LMHR was faced with after their main sponsor pulled out. Morrissey commented, "This is a historic event spreading an important, anti racist message so it must be allowed to go ahead. LMHR got in touch and explained that the NME had pulled its support, possibly as a result of their association with me, and asked if I could help as they had not been able to replace them. This is something I'm committed to & we appreciate everyone coming together so quickly to make it happen."*
