NetAid concerts held in London, New York and Geneva, Saturday Oct. 9, 1999.
BONO, Wyclef Jean, Sting, George Michael, Puff Daddy, Texas and Robbie Williams (pictured) are among those performing at NetAid's trio of international anti-poverty benefit concerts this weekend.
Stereophonics, Catatonia, Mary J. Blige, Sheryl Crow, David Bowie, Bryan Adams and more are also taking part in the event, with concerts in London, New York and Geneva staged simultaneously and webcast live on Saturday October 9, NetAid's own website.
The NetAid organisation -dedicated to providing basic needs: food, shelter, legal protection, human rights and health care to poverty stricken countries across the globe- hopes to attract a record-breaking 60 million visitors an hour to their website on Saturday. This in turn will aim to draw attention to affiliated project Jubilee 2000 -the project which seeks to convince governments to wipe out the debt of the Third World nations.
