Numbers of anti-war artists, including Michael Stipe, Susan Sarandon, and Cindy Sheehan, have all embarked on a concert as a way to mark the third anniversary of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq. Held Monday night March 20th, 2006, the so-called "Bring 'Em Home Now!" concert, according to organizers, has successfully sold 3,000 tickets with benefits given to groups campaigning against the war.

"I was raised by peace activists," Moby who was one of the performers said to the crowd at Hammerstein Ballroom. The star, during the bash, accompanied Laura Dawn in a rendition of Buffalo Springfield's Vietnam-era song, "For What It's Worth."

"It's awesome to me because there are more and more kids getting involved," Sheehan said before the concert. Meanwhile, Sarandon said artists were playing their part in the anti-war effort by attending the concert and through the movies Hollywood is producing, picking up "Syriana" and "Good Night, and Good Luck" as the examples.
