Anmesty International announced that they will be organising gigs all over the world, to take place between September 10 and Human Rights Day on December 10.

The line-up for the gigs, billed as the Small Places Tour, has not been announced yet.

Accepting the award, Peter Gabriel said: "It was through the tours for Amnesty International that I first met many people around the world engaged in human rights work. It was these people and their extraordinary stories of suffering and courage that I found impossible to walk away from, so the Ambassador of Conscience award means a great deal to me."
