Supporters of Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley say Vedder and Maines will perform Aug. 28 at Robinson Center Music Hall in Little Rock, with proceeds from the show to benefit the legal fund for the so-called West Memphis Three. Tickets are $25.
Echols was sentenced to death for the 1993 deaths of 8-year-olds Christopher Byers, Michael Moore and Stevie Branch. Baldwin and Misskelley both received life sentences. But supporters of the men say they're innocent, even though their convictions have been upheld by the Arkansas Supreme Court.
Echols goes before the state Supreme Court again on Sept. 30.
