The Corrs to play Freedom concert...

Rock superstars REM will be joined by the Irish supergroup The Corrs and Spice Girl Mel B among the acts who will play at a special concert in London to mark South Africa Freedom Day later this month, it was confirmed last night. Former South African President Nelson Mandela will be among those outside the South African High Commission in Trafalgar Square to see the free concert on April 29.

The spectacular has been organised to mark the seventh anniversary of South Africa's first democratic elections in 1994. The lineup will include a mix of South African and international artists including Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Hugh Masekela and Atomic Kitten.

The concert, which will be benefit the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund and The Prince's Trust, will take place in front of 30,000 people.

Mr Mandela told press in London yesterday, "I warmly welcome the opportunity that our Freedom Day Concert presents to acknowledge that extraordinary courage and humanity of our people in overcoming the apartheid system. It underlines that together we are building a new and vibrant democracy with human rights firmly at its core. Please save a seat for me in the Square on April 20 so that I can join in the celebrations and demonstrate the deep affection I have personally for the people of the UK."

The Corrs are currently on a UK tour after opening U2's tour in the US.
