Beyonce is coming to South Africa

Beyoncé, JAY-Z, and Pharrell are headlining the free (i.e. costs you exactly zero dollars) concert at FNB Stadium.

There will be 100,000 tickets and 70,000 of them are free for you to earn by doing your bit to alleviate poverty in society.

Global Citizens who earn their free tickets will see a music performance of a lifetime, as artists from around the world gather on our stage alongside world and corporate leaders, activists and advocates.

Tickets will be given out from August 21.

"Today, I'm proud to join the Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 in South Africa as we answer his call and continue the fight for a more just and equitable world for all".

Beyonce, Jay-Z and Ed Sheeran will headline a special Global Citizen Festival in honor of Nelson Mandela in South Africa on December 2. The Global Citizen organisation is a movement of engaged citizens who are using their collective voice to end extreme poverty by 2030.

The event, put together by the Motsepe Foundation, is to celebrate the centenary of Nelson Mandela, honoring his legacy in the fight to end extreme poverty, revealed a statement shared on PR Newswire. The aim is to encourage people around the world, particularly young people to do good deeds and take an interest in what's happening in their respective countries.

"Nelson Mandela's life story is a testament to the power of the human spirit and one man's ability to change the world by standing up for what he believed in", Oprah Winfrey said Monday.

Local fans are losing their mind as they scramble for tickets but attendees have been informed that tickets are free of cost.

The Global Citizen Festival rallies musicians, politicians and thought leaders to influence citizens on a global scale and take actions that influence government policies.
