Last year, Sir Paul joined Bono, Beyonce, the Corrs, Britney Spears, Sting, Shakira, Dave Stewart and Annie Lennox for Nelson Mandela's HIV/AIDS-awareness benefit concert which was held at the Greenpoint Stadium Cape Town, South Africa (see October 21, 2003). The concert was held before a live audience of 40,000 and a global television audience of over 2 billion.
Plans are being made for a second concert to be held at the Fancourt Hotel and Country Club estate on March 19th. Proceeds from this concert will help the women of sub-Saharan Africa who are most affected by the AIDs virus. The line up of performers will be announced later this month.
