U2 Wish Nelson Mandela ‘Happy Birthday’ at Philadelphia Concert
U2 had the audience at their Philadelphia show last week join them in singing 'Happy Birthday' to South African revolutionary and former president Nelson Mandela, who turned 93 yesterday (July 18).
The video was shown on Mandela's actual birthday yesterday during a New York dinner in honor of him that was attended by actor Morgan Freeman, who played Mandela in the movie 'Invictus,' along with other celebrities. Mandela, himself, spent his birthday in South Africa with his family.
U2's record breaking 360 tour is set wraps up July 30 with a show in New Brunswick, Canada. Check out the few remaining dates here.
