Manu Chao has announced a free concert in support of Alto Arizona.

The concert, hosted in collaboration with the National Day Laborer Organizing Network and Alto Arizona, is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, September 21, at West Grant and S. 2nd Avenue, right across the street from El Portal Restaurant.

In an official press release for the event, Chao states: "For the past year, we've carried the people of Arizona in our hearts as we witnessed them suffer under such ignorant laws. We'll be proud to perform with the community to show that love can conquer hate."

"We're honored to partner on an Alto Arizona concert to help turn the tide on hatred. And Manu Chao's music is a valuable reminder that the struggle for human dignity is not just fought for, it's also celebrated," says Pablo Alvarado, Director of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network, in the same statement.

We've reached out the Chao camp regarding an interview. Stay tuned for more updates.
