Annie Lennox to Perform at Nelson Mandela: A Life Celebrated Event

11 December 2013

The City of Cape Town has just received confirmation that international artist Annie Lennox will be joining Cape Town’s Madiba commemoration event at the Cape Town Stadium today, 11 December 2013.

Annie Lennox is a singer, songwriter, activist and 46664 ambassador and founded the SING campaign.

Gates open at 14:00 and the event starts at 16:00. The programme is expected to run until 22:30.

All available coupons have been collected and only those members of the public with a coupon will be allowed access into the stadium. The City urges residents to only come to the stadium event if they have their coupon. Children under the age of two do not require a coupon.

The City would like to once again appeal to coupon-holders to please give away any coupons that they are not using. This is the best way of honouring Madiba: ensuring that as many people as possible can attend the event. Anyone who has spare coupons or coupons they cannot use is encouraged to give these coupons to friends, family members, or even strangers who they know will make use of them.

The City is giving those who weren’t able to get coupons a chance to still witness the homage to Madiba by screening the event on the Grand Parade. The stadium event will be screened on the Grand Parade from 16:00 when it starts.
