 EARTH DAY '92 FEATURES GLOBAL CONCERT IN BOSTON
 TO URGE 'SOUND ACTION' ON THE ENVIRONMENT
 BOSTON, March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- On April 25 recording artists from around the world will perform at the National Earth Day '92 "Sound Action" Concert at Foxboro Stadium near Boston. According to the producers, Concerts For the Environment, the Earth Day '92 Concert will be "an event of global proportion," featuring at least one dozen acts including Midnight Oil from Australia, The Kinks from London, Youssou N' Dour from Africa, Bruce Cockburn from Canada, The Steve Miller Band, Violent Femmes, Willie Nelson, John Trudell and Grafitti Man and a special teaming by Joan Baez, the Indigo Girls, Roseanne Cash, and Mary-Chapin Carpenter.
 The Earth Day '92 "Sound Action" Concert is being coordinated by Concerts For the Environment, a Minneapolis-based nonprofit organization whose purpose is to stimulate environmental action by combining the power of music and education. CFE also produced the Earth Day '91 Concert at Foxboro Stadium, which attracted over 37,000 participants, and the Earth Day '90 Concert in Washington, D.C.
 The Earth Day '92 Concert will be the highlight of a month-long Earth Day '92 "Sound Action" Campaign coordinated by CFE, which is designed to spur citizens to take "Sound Action" on environmental issues. According to CFE Chairman Tom Sellars, the campaign will focus on "providing voters with the information necessary to support candidates in this election year who recognize the connection between a sustainable environment and a sustainable environment and a sustainable economy."
 In addition to the concert, the other components of the Earth Day '92 "Sound Action" Campaign will include 1) a 24-city, cross-country tour by The Steve Miller Band, aimed at educating college and high school students to vote for the environment; 2) the airing of Earth Day messages on about 50 radio stations and in 24 cable television carriers of VH-1 from artists such as Jackson Browne, Melissa Etheridge, R.E.M. and Steve Miller; and 3) the distribution of over one million "Sound Action Guides," 16-page booklets which provide tips on how individuals can help save the environment and money.
 Tickets for the Earth Day '92 "Sound Action" Concert are available by calling Ticketmaster at 617-931-2000. Tickets cost $19.50, $25, and $35.
 The Earth Day '92 Campaign is sponsored by "Green Inc.," a consortium of environmentally responsible corporations whose members are VH-1, Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream, Aveda Corporation, and Seventh Generation.
