These acts are invited to perform at the first Secret Policeman's Ball held in the United States this coming March.

Human rights organization Amnesty International has invited a slew of musicians and comedians to celebrate free speech with them at Secret Policeman's Ball. Coming to the U.S. for the first time on March 14, the event will have Coldplay, Russell Brand, Stephen Colbert, Mumford and Sons, Jon Stewart, Reggie Watts, John Cleese and many more.

"We have followed and supported Amnesty International - and the amazing work they do around the world in the field of human rights - for years, and it is a pleasure to be asked to contribute to such an inspiring event," Coldplay's frontman Chris Martin said.

"The Secret Policeman's Ball has a long and hilariously off-color history of using comic genius to fight for free speech and human rights around the world," said Lily Sobhani, executive producer of the ball. "We are thrilled that the leading lights of comedy and music are coming together to bring the Secret Policeman's Ball to the United States for the first time."

The night of music and comedy that marks Amnesty's 50th anniversary will take place at Radio City Music Hall. Money raised will benefit the organization.
