News report from Matt Hurwitz, Good Day Sunshine magazine:
It was just announced in England that a concert in tribute to Linda McCartney, titled "Here There and Everywhere - A Concert for Linda," will be held in London at the Royal Albert Hall on Saturday April 10, 1999. Proceeds from the sale of tickets will go to some of Linda's favorite animal charities. Tickets go on sale tomorrow.
The concert is being organized by Chrissie Hynde. She and the rest of The Pretenders will be the backing band for the all-star show, which will be hosted by Eddie Izzard. Signed on so far are: Elvis Costello, Heather Small of M People, Lynden David Hall, Des'ree, guitarist Johnny Marr, the legendary Tom Jones, Neil Finn, Marianne Faithfull, Sinead O'Connor, Ladysmith Black Mambazo and George Michael. The duke String Quartet will also perform and provide arrangements.
At present, Paul is not expected to perform, though he has, of course, given the show his blessing.
The concert will be filmed by Kevin Godley and will be aired on BBC1 on April 18, with a radio broadcast the day before, on April 17, the anniversary of Linda's death.
