OTHER NOTES
In late 2002 Bono worked with Joe Strummer of the Clash and David A. Stewart on a song titled after Nelson Mandela's Prision Number '46664'.  This song was to be used to bring attention to the devestation that AIDS and HIV was creating in Africa.  Joe Strummer, however, passed away before the completion of the song and it was left up to Bono and David Stewart to finish the song.

Originally planned for early 2003, a concert was planned in South Africa to launch the 46664 campaign.  The concert was pushed back and rescheduled for November 29th, 2003 to coincide with World AIDS day.  The concert was streamed live on the internet, and was later televised around the world.

The first tracks featured on this album with U2 are Bono and the Edge performing "One / Unchained Melody".  Then Bono performs the song "Amandla" with Queen, Anastacia, David A Stewart and others.  This is one of the songs written for the 46664 campaign.  Finally two songs at the end are performed by the cast, and Bono and the Edge may have participated, but at any rate Bono did co-write the "46664 Chant" which is a reprise of "46664 (Long Road to Freedom) found on the second disc.  The other song performed by the cast is "We are the Champions".

The entire concert was released on CD, spread over three discs.  These discs were sold separately to hopefully bring in buyers who would only be interested in one disc and wouldn't pay for a three disc set.  Contributions by Bono and the Edge are spread out over all three released discs.  The other two discs capturing this live event are Part I: African Prayer and Part II: Long Road to Freedom.  There was also a 2 disc DVD released of the entire concert.
