Organisers Announce Concert Line-Up

(LONDON, UK – 10th MAY 2005) Having confirmed that former President
Nelson Mandela will travel from South Africa to Tromsø, 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 organisers 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 Tromsø: 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 Tromsø 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

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

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.
