Nelson Mandela curates hip new London festival
Eminem will apparently make his return to the live stage at Nelson Mandela’s 90th birthday party, held in London’s Hyde Park this summer.
The rapper, real name Marshall Mathers, will make his first appearance since 2005 at the Mandela-curated, Will Smith-hosted event.
Further performances come from ‘Queen’, Stevie Wonder, Razorlight and Keane, while Annie Lennox will be there, still looking for a husband.
Aye, a good line-up I hear you mutter under your breath – well, you may well soon be able to add U2*, *The Spice Girls and **Paul McCartney to the bands you’ll be jumping around to with your mum and your hot dog on the 27th of June.
That’ll be nice won’t it? Free Nelson Mandela!
