Queen To Play Second Mandela Concert

The members of QUEEN are heading back to South Africa to perform a second concert for NELSON MANDELA to raise cash in the fight against HIV and AIDS.

The show, called 46664 SOUTH AFRICA after Mandela's onetime prison number, is scheduled for 19 March (05) at the Fancourt golf resort near the southern town of George.

It follows a concert held in Cape Town in November 2003, which was broadcast worldwide.

Queen and singer-songwriter PAUL RODGERS, who helped found the groups FREE and BAD COMPANY, are expected to be joined by a host of international stars at the concert.

Mandela, 86, has made fighting Africa's AIDS pandemic one of his major campaigns since stepping down as South Africa's first black president in 1997.
