Mccartney To Stream Concert Online For Hiv Campaign
SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY has teamed up with France's First Lady CARLA BRUNI to organise a live broadcast of his upcoming London concert to raise awareness of her HIV charity.
The Beatles legend will take to the stage in the British capital on Sunday (27Jun10) to perform at the Hyde Park Calling music festival, set in the city's famous green space.
He has now joined forces with Bruni and her Born HIV Free campaign to stream the gig online for free - fans will be able to watch the show live over the internet and play it back on YouTube.com for up to a month after the performance.
Bruni, who is Global Fund Ambassador for the charity, has thanked MCCartney for lending his support to the good cause. She says, "I want to thank Paul MCCartney for donating this performance for the Born HIV Free campaign. Through this live stream, we share our common belief in a world where all children can be born free from HIV."
