Overview

Watched by 40,000 South Africans and telecast live to millions more on World AIDS Day, December 1, 2003, the 46664 charity concert in Cape Town joined over 30 international performers to raise awareness and funds in the fight against HIV/AIDS. The 4 ½-hour event was the first stage of a global initiative championed by Nelson Mandela, which takes its name from his prison number during the apartheid era. Together with the Eurythmics' Dave Stewart, U2's Bono and The Edge, Queen's Brian May and Roger Taylor, Bob Geldof, and the late Joe Strummer, Mandela's appeal has initiated a score of artistic collaborations and launched programs for treatment, education, and research in Africa.

The 46664 concert has been released on three CDs -- African Prayer, Long Walk to Freedom, and Amandla -- featuring the artists mentioned above, plus a host of South African musicians and special guests including Beyonce, Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens), Paul Oakenfold, Annie Lennox, the Corrs, Jimmy Cliff, and many others. A double-DVD set, 46664: The Event, includes the full concert presentation, two documentaries, extensive artist interviews, and twelve one-minute films by contemporary visual artists addressing HIV/AIDS.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - David Jeffries
One of three CDs capturing the November 29, 2003, benefit concert for Nelson Mandela's AIDS awareness campaign, 46664 (named after Mandela's prisoner number), Nelson Mandela AIDS Concert: Amandla includes the big highlight of the series. A reunited Eurythmics sound bright, driven, and looser than ever on their ends-way-too-soon three-song set. The brief set problem is one all of the discs in the series share, but with the Eurythmics sounding this hot it's downright frustrating. Annie Lennox agreed to the reunion to show support for Dave Stewart's role in organizing 46664, and the joy from both comes through loud and clear on the CD. Stewart's partners in 46664, Brian May and Roger Taylor, don't reunite Queen as much as celebrate the band. Bono and Zucchero do a good job filling Freddie Mercury's shoes, but it's the Taylor Dayne-esque bellow of Anastacia that takes the set over the top. Poignant performances from Bob Geldof and Bono with the Edge, plus the empowering chant at the end, make this disc the pick of the three.
