Costello To Headline Obama Concert

Singers ELVIS COSTELLO, STING and SEAL will perform at a concert in Washington D.C. to celebrate U.S. President-elect BARACK OBAMA's inauguration on 20 January (09).
The British stars will be joined by a host of celebrities at the unofficial inaugural ball to mark the historic occasion.
Anne Hathaway, Susan Sarandon, Marcia Cross and heavyweight film directors Spike Lee and Ron Howard will also appear at the sold-out event, which aims to raise funds for arts and entertainment advocacy group The Creative Coalition.
