News Release:


A host of musicians will perform at a gig promoting transcendental meditation.

Music stars Eddie Vedder and Sir Paul McCartney are to appear at a transcendental meditation event hosted by movie director David Lynch.

Pearl Jam frontman Vedder and the former Beatle will play a benefit concert at Radio City Hall in New York for the David Lynch Foundation.

Lynch is a prominent member of the Transcendental Meditation Movement, which believes enlightenment and world peace can be gained through 'yogic flying' or levitation through the power of the mind.

On his website, the Blue Velvet director writes: "I have been 'diving within' through the transcendental meditation technique for over 30 years. It has changed my life, my world. I am not alone."

He also claims that every child should be allowed time to meditate and is calling for schools to introduce the practice as part of their curriculum.

The musicians will perform at the fundraising event on April 4th, as will country singer Sheryl Crow, dance star Moby and Scottish songwriter Donovan.
