ANNIE LENNOX AND PETER GABRIEL ADD THEIR VOICES TO NELSON MANDELA?S GLOBAL HIV/AIDS CALL Join Mandela for 46664 ARCTIC June 11, TromsÃ¸, Norway The situation with HIV /AIDS in Africa has become a genocide of unprecedented proportions. Generations are simply being wiped out. As a woman, a mother, and an ambassador of Nelson Mandela's 46664 campaign, I feel compelled to do my best to help raise awareness on this totally unacceptable scenario.? Annie Lennox. London. 26 May, 2005 Annie Lennox and Peter Gabriel are the latest world artists to answer former president Nelson Mandela?s call across the globe for more to be done to fight HIV/AIDS and send a message to the forthcoming G8 Gleneagles gathering. Lennox and Gabriel today announced they will join Mandela in his journey to the Arctic Circle next month where Mr. Mandelas latest campaigning will take the form of 46664 Arctic, a truly global music concert featuring a host of artists from both hemispheres which takes place in TromsÃ¸, Norway on Saturday June 11. The two artists add their support to that of already committed artists such as Queens Brian May, legendary Led Zeppelin front man Robert Plant performing with his new band Strange Sensation, UK band-of-the-moment Razorlight, Italy?s Zucchero, Ireland?s Sharon Corr alongside more than a dozen African and Scandinavian artists. It will be the first concert on such a scale to take place in the Nordic region and has been deliberately sited to provide a platform for Mandela?s 46664 cause to deliver a message to the youth of the northern hemisphere that the HIV/AIDS threat now exists on their doorstep, particularly in the former Soviet Republic on Norways border where millions of lives are already affected. The timing of the Arctic event - coming three weeks ahead of the G8 summit, will also offer Mr. Mandela a window to address the gathered crowd with a message specifically aimed at the leaders who will gather under Britains Prime Minister Tony Blair for G8 Gleneagles in Scotland 6-8 July which will focus on the challenges Africa faces, telling them that far more needs to be done to fight HIV/AIDS and the poverty which lies at the heart of it. 46664 Arctic is the fourth event held under the banner of his former prison number since the campaign was first launched in October 2003. The 46664 initiative was born out of the determination of some of the world?s biggest artists, initially Bono, Dave Stewart, Annie Lennox and Queen?s Brian May and Roger Taylor to mobilise the music industry and leading world figures into helping Mr. Mandela in his quest to bring about change in attitudes and help given to tackling the cause and affects of the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Since then, many of the biggest names across all areas of public recognition have come on board accepting the roles of ?ambassadors? to 46664: music artists such as Anastacia, BeyoncÃ©, Bono and The Edge, Sir Paul McCartney and Sting, and popular figures such as Will Smith, Brad Pitt, Robert de Niro and Bill Clinton, many of whom will send messages to 46664 Arctic. Annie Lennox and Peter Gabriel have been among 46664?s most committed supporters. Both appeared in the founding 46664 concert held in Cape Town in November 2003. Lennox appeared again at the recent 46664 Fancourt concert in George, South Africa, where she gave an impassioned address on the issue of women living with HIV/AIDS as well as performing with her own band. Said Lennox today: ?The situation with Hiv /Aids in Africa has become a genocide of unprecedented proportions. Things are not improving.in fact, they are getting worse, and very little is being done to effectively turn the tide of this preventable disaster. An estimated 50,000 people a day become infected with the Aids virus in Africa, and six out of every ten of those are women. Generations are simply being wiped out. ?As a woman, a mother, and an ambassador of Nelson Mandela's 46664 campaign, I feel compelled to do my best to help raise awareness on this totally unacceptable scenario. 46664 ARCTIC is being made possible by a grant of 12 million NK from the Storting (Norwegian Parliament) of which Mr. Mandela said: "46664 Arctic recognizes the fight to stop AIDS is global. The support of the Parliament and people of Norway is leading the way in helping to try and secure a future for everyone, everywhere, free from HIV/AIDS". 46664 ARCTIC will be televised by NRK and will be produced by Jim Beach, together with much of the same team behind the previous 46664 South African concerts, including Tim Massey as event co-ordinator and Robbie Williams as concert producer. STRONG SHOW OF SUPPORT FROM INTERNATIONAL ARTISTS FOR 46664 ARCTIC Organisers Announce Concert Line-Up (LONDON, UK 10th MAY 2005) Having confirmed that former President Nelson Mandela will travel from South Africa to TromsÃ¸, Norway, in June to host the 46664 ARCTIC concert to convey his HIV/AIDS message to the northern hemisphere countries, and at the same time deliver a strong caution to leaders of the G8 summit that more needs to be done in the global fight, the 46664 concert organizers today announced a host of artists names who have all come forward to appear at the concert in support of Mr. Mandela and his campaign. The list of artist bears witness to a truly global endorsement of the 4664 campaign, with performers and present 46664 ?ambassadors? coming together from across the world to appear in TromsÃ¸: Queen?s Brian May, who will perform with Armenian musician Jivan Gasparyan, Led Zeppelin?s Robert Plant, UK cult rock band Razorlight, Italy?s Zucchero, Ireland?s Sharon Corr, Benin?s Angelique Kidjo and South African artists including Bongo Maffin, Johnny Clegg and Ladysmith Black Mambazo and many of Scandanavia?s top artists including Ane Brun, Anneli Drecker, Kaizers Orchestra and Madrugada from Norway, and Saybia from Denmark. They will all perform in the presence of Mr Mandela. The concert will additionally see messages sent from such high-profile 46664 ambassadors including Bill Clinton, Bob Geldof, Bono, Brad Pitt, Chris Martin, Robert de Niro and Will Smith calling on the world to do more to address infant mortality and the impact of HIV/AIDS on children. In Africa alone, 1,400 babies are born HIV positive every day. International artists today confirmed for the 46664 ARCTIC concert in TromsÃ¸ on 11th June are: - Angelique Kidjo - Brian May - Bongo Maffin - Jivan Gasparyan - Johnny Clegg - Ladysmith Black Mambaza - Razorlight - Robert Plant & Strange Sensation - Sharon Corr - Zucchero 46664 ARCTIC follows the success last weekend of 46664 FESTIVAL MADRID, a three-day music event closed by 46664 Ambassador Zucchero and attended by over 30,000 people, and 46664 SOUTH AFRICA in Fancourt, George, which raised over 10 million Rand for the Nelson Mandela Foundation. 46664 ARCTIC will also provide a platform for Mr. Mandela to address the gathered crowd with a message specifically aimed at the leaders of the G8 summit which will be held under the leadership of Britain's Prime Minister, Tony Blair, three weeks later in Scotland telling them that far more needs to be done to fight HIV/AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa. By staging the concert in the Arctic, 46664 also aims to deliver a message to the youth of the northern hemisphere countries where HIV/AIDS now endangers the lives of millions, particularly in the former Soviet Republic on Norway's border. 46664 ARCTIC is being made possible by a grant of 12 million NK (c.1.2m sterling) from the Storting (Norwegian Parliament) of which Mr. Mandela said: "46664 Arctic recognizes the fight to stop AIDS is global. The support of the Parliament and people of Norway is leading the way in helping to try and secure a future for everyone, everywhere, free from HIV/AIDS". 46664 ARCTIC will be televised by NRK and will be produced by Jim Beach, together with much of the same team behind the previous 46664 South African concerts, including Tim Massey as event co-ordinator and Robbie Williams as concert producer.
